For those of us who lost a parent as a child, we know rejection all too well. Someone asked me, “are you going to teach people how to cope,” with their childhood loss. I said, “No.” They have been coping all their lives. They need to learn how to heal.
The same is with rejection. When we started feeling rejection as a child, it builds. It is almost like a snowball going downhill, building on top of itself. We can be very sensitive to rejection. In fact, we are hypervigilant about it, actually looking for it.
We have all heard our friends say they got close to their boyfriend or girlfriend and so I decided I’m not ready for that or I got scared and I rejected him/her, before they rejected me. What we really want to do is have a peaceful, calm life that is kind toward our self and others. If that is what we want, we need to look and see how our childhood affected us. If you lost a parent when you were a child, no matter how you lost your parent, you are probably sensitive to rejection.
Look below this video and sign up for my vlog to come each week. I will teach just a little about how to go through the muddy waters of healing from childhood loss. Today just look at how rejection is in your life. Are you always running trying to get away from someone rejecting you? I’m not just talking about personal relationships like significant others, but workplace and career, all places in our life. How does rejection fit in your life and how have you dealt with it?
