The pain of rejection can be difficult to get past but you have to know that time heals everything including broken hearts.
Getting rejected by someone you love can set you back emotionally, make you loose concentration or even leave you physically incapable of doing your day to day activities. While some of us can easily handle the sufferings that come with being rejected, others require support and help to get back to their normal self.
Just in case you fall in to this category, you should know that its okay to hurt because you can’t have the person you love but it is not okay to continue suffering when you could be having the best time of your life.
Rejection just like every other form of unfortunate incidence can leave you feeling down for a while but with these simple tips, you should be bouncing back with renewed excitement to meet someone new in no time
1. Remind yourself that the pain is temporal
You need to keep telling yourself that the way you feel right now will go away because it actually will. With time, you will get over the hurt and almost forget it ever happened.
2. Don’t stay idle
Engaging in physical activities will keep your mind and thoughts occupied while you try to heal. Staying on your own and not interacting with people will only make you wallow in self-pity, so don’t encourage it.
3. Don’t blame yourself
Times will come when you might feel self-loathing for being rejected, but don’t blame yourself for what happened. What you need now is to be your own friend and focus on being happy again.
4. Meet new people
Meeting new people is a good way to take your attention away from your current situation and also to meet potential friends. You might even meet ‘the one’ while out socialising.
5. Change environment if necessary
If your environment serves as a constant reminder of ‘the one that got away’ then changing your environment might be the first step towards recovery.
