Refusal is hard, especially if you have a lot of anxiety about it. Trying to avoid it altogether is n’t always the best option, however, it can lead to an inability to take risks and a lack of experiences that would help you grow as a person.

Learning how to handle rejection does n’t have to be painful. You can get through it with a bit of exercise and the correct perspective. Taking actions like this can help you feel better about it in the future.

One way to process a rejection is to look at it as a push in the direction of the type of connection that is most suitable with your skills, temperament, and base ideals. By focusing on this perspective, you can see that the rejection is n’t your fault, and it could actually be helping you on the path to a life with someone who really does want to be with you.

It can be hard to separate your feelings of hurt from the other person’s decision, but remember that they are n’t obligated to tell you why they rejected you or even explain the circumstances. The only thing they owe you is their storage. Honor your feelings, and take care of yourself by using coping strategies that help self- care.

You can also consider to depersonalise the practice by examining what happened and how you might alter your behavior in the future, such as making an effort to be more approachable. You should also make sure to avoid detrimental coping systems, such as blaming yourself or turning the refusal into an notion of a lifetime of marginalization and failure.
