Rejection hurts, we're here to help.

We have all been through rejection at some point in our lives, when you are being criticised, laughed at or dismissed by a person you really care about. It can be gut-wrenching and downright embarrassing, you might even start feeling unworthy. These points might help you  stand up on our feet again, when the initial feelings of hurt have passed.

6. Do not expect the person to change

The first and the hardest step is to accept and let go, understand that the person who you were in love with or had any kind of a bond with, has no feelings of affection left to offer, all they can and will give you is more pain and rejection. So don't try to cling to that person hoping that one day your persistent love can make them go back on their decision. Prepare yourself to move on and that comes only after you fully accept the situation.

5. It is not the end of the world

It is crucial to understand that this is just a temporary situation, you cannot dwell on it forever- it is not the end. This is just God's way of redirecting you to something better, let that plan fall into place by being strong and patient. You are broken and hurt, but it's the toughest storms that make the bravest sailors. Understand that you will come out of this, nothing ends here.

4. Do not beg and plead

In a situation like this, it is normal to try and make that person see things your way, to make them reconsider their decision but after that initial justification and persuasion, comes a point where you need to stop begging them to take you back. Every time you knock on the same door and it keeps shutting, right on your face, you lose a little piece of your self-respect to them, even if they do take you back, temporarily, it will be out of sympathy and soon you will find yourself at their feet, again.
