Rejection hurts, but it`s part of life. Most of us has suffered from one form of rejection or the other but its our attitude that determines our success in life.
Here are five Proven ways to deal with rejection in life:
1. Remember it is not permanent
When you have realized that you have been rejected it is okay to feel sad, you may not be able to sleep, eat or do anything fun.
“Rejection is part of the game. Or rather, rejection is part of the profession. A profession which at times can feel like a game” – Robin Black
Always remember that rejection is temporary not permanent and you must treat it that way.
“Do not waste yourself in rejection; do not bark against the bad, but chant the beauty of the good” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
2. Take time to pour out your feelings
“Don’t feel bad if someone rejects you or ignore you. People usually reject and ignore expensive things because they can’t afford them.” – unknown
It`s always better to take time to vent your anger or frustration so that you won`t carry it along with you. Doing this will give you the opportunity to look at your mistakes, analyse them and move on.
“We all learn lessons in life. Some stick, some don’t. I have always learned more from rejection and failure than from acceptance and success.” – Henry Rollins

People can reject you for just no reason, don`t feel bad, accept it, learn from it and move on.
“Rejection isn’t failure. Failure is giving up. Everyone gets rejected. It’s how handle it that determines where you’ll end up.” – Richard Castle

“Don’t let anyone, or any rejection, keep you from what you want.” – Ashley Tisdale
5. Don`t dwell on your flaws
“There’s no point in dwelling on rejection” – Isabel Lucas
