I have experienced it several times. So have you. Every time it happens I am reminded again how miserable it feels to be rejected. It is a feeling of disappointment for not achieving the desired goal in life.  There is no worse feeling in life to experience rejection. Rejection is not limited to romantic relations; it is broad and encompasses friendships, family relations, careers, contests, jobs, scholarships and what have you. After rejection a sudden drop of positive emotions are guaranteed.

The cause of rejection can be both legit and illegitimate. It is obvious to anticipate rejection when one applies for a job without proper qualifications. It simply turns employers off to consider you because you have failed to meet their expectations. And sometimes you experience it basing on one’s appearance.  Regardless of the cause, the effects of rejection can be hurtful and a source of inspiration.

Life can be a miserable hell if one lives in denial after rejection. To some, it is the end of the world. However, life has to continue. The emotions of rejection are necessary medicines that must be used to fuel us into greatness. It should inspire, drive and motivate you to see rejection as a proof of experiencing life in abundance.

People like Walt Disney, Albert Einstein, Oprah Winfrey and Michael Jordan are some of the figures that refused to kill their dreams after rejection. As painful it was by creating stream of anger and frustration and let alone destroying their self-esteems, they preferred to work hard and treat their wounds quick to live beyond rejection.

Greatest inventions and innovations can be made after rejection. So are hatred, anger, resentment and envy. Life has never ceased due to calamities encountered in this world. Stop taking rejection personal and living to meet other people’s expectations which are full of prejudices, values and beliefs contrary to ours.  I read with joy that people who reject us are the minority.

The choices we make after tragedies of all kinds determine how our tomorrow will be.  It is up to us to live in denial and allow negative experience dictate with what you will do with your future or to move on and create opportunities.   There is life after rejection because 1 Peter 2: 9 affirms that    “you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy  nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light”  And  NOTHING  can separate us from his love.

  1. As it is said, “man’s rejection is God’s direction.” I always learn from the story of Joseph. “Genesis 50:20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”
    I’ve faced rejection countless times🙄🙄 but I rest in the truth that God’s plans for me are higher than I can ever dream of… It’s really just a matter of time… Waiting is often hard to do but when you hold on to God’s promises things will beautifully unfold at the right time.😊 This piece has dropped on time, needed to hear this 🙂 many blessings.


  2. Timely and very true bro. God is wants us endure somethings so that we can learn how to win future battles. It is indeed a source of inspiration as we approach a time of denial and acceptance. I just remembered a kid asking during our last bible class before we went on spring break ‘Why did the people who were with Jesus the previous night at the last dinner reject Him in front of all the world?’ God bless you bro. I am blessed by this article “If God does not show up, you are in trouble-faith” – Bruce Main
