How do you feel being rejected in the public?
Each of us has different experiences
You basically feel rejected. There is a brief time when you feel saddened that no one will accept you. Why does no one like you? What is wrong with you? Then after a little while, you discover the most amazing questions. Why should I care what they think? What made them so important to me? They are just people. And you learn to just ignore them eventually and to focus on enjoying yourself in your little rejection bubble.
I guess I have never experienced that or maybe I am too dim to know I was being rejected! :-) I think iburmaster covered it very well. I think I would go through exactly what she laid out.
duffsmom, Most women would identify with you. Men tend to reject women (indirectly). A man sees two women in a nightclub. He asks one to dance. The one not asked doesn't (feel) rejected but that's what just happened. Men reject women by NOT pursuing.
Interesting dashingscorpio. I never looked at it from that perspective. Then, yes I have been publicly rejected but didn't know it at the time. In my teen years I had a best friend with huge breasts and man was she popular!! :-)
Rejection (never feels good) no matter how many times one has experienced it whether it be publically or in private. Generally speaking the most successful people in anything have probably been rejected more than most people who gave up reaching their goals.
When it comes to rejection in dating or relationships you are actually being saved time. Instead of being led on or given false hope you can continue to pursue the (type) of person you want to be with. You want to find someone that has the qualities you value the most. Whenever you pin your hopes on a (specific person) instead of a (specific type) of person then you hurt more and miss out on the big picture that she or he is not the only person in the world that has what you want and need in a partner. Thankfully there are 7 billion people on this planet!
Quite awhile back I read something that former Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson said; "Don't let success go to your head and don't let failure go to your heart." In other words try not to become emotionally invested in results.
