Rejection stings! When we are rejected we feel dismissed, insignificant, somehow lacking or not good enough.
The next time you are rejected count your blessings, you are being redirected to something better.
Rejection is protection from misery and a course correction towards your destiny.
Keep shining brightly and trust in your journey.
‘Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’ … three of the saddest words uttered throughout the ages … 3 words that cause our greatest grief and anxiety … they are the socially unacceptable words of regret … the misgivings we have shoved down … the remorse we pretend doesn’t exist … we all have them … moments when we cautiously withdrew from someone or something because we were afraid of being rejected, of failing, looking foolish … they are the life defining moments we defensively, justifiably, self-righteously took a detour from and headed into a new direction … believing we are ‘now’ safe … yet as we journey on our new path we quietly carry our invisible baggage of shame, guilt and self-loathing, mumbling I ‘Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’…
A recent survey by Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America found that roughly one-third (32%) of Americans regret major choices in their lives.
Happy Newsflash … it’s never late to dump our baggage … to embrace our innocence … our vulnerabilities … to acknowledge that we did our best with what we knew at the time … to exercise our courage …. to step up and smash our ‘Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’… to either do the ‘ it’ … or … to forgive ourselves … for our past misguided decisions … at this juncture we can’t fool ourselves … we know what to do for ‘done’ to pop.

The persona… contains in varying proportions, characteristics and tendencies which are currently considered in terms of good and bad, desirable and undesirable.
In trying to improve himself consciously, the individual denies those tendencies which he considers undesirable, and rejects them.
But such rejected tendencies do not really vanish; they remain and accumulate under the surface.
Such suppression is the root cause of many mental disturbances.
The realization of the fact that the unwanted aspects of one’s ego are an integral part of what makes for a supposed individual is the first step towards relief through surrender.
Once there is a basic realization of -and- acceptance of – the oneness of the good and the bad within the individual ego, all that is really needed is letting-go and witnessing of the operation of this realization.
