You see, I used to be that way. I wanted to do everything and even went farther and go without nothing, just so I could please someone, and still would end in up in rejection. I came to realize that when it comes to relationships, it has to work both ways and not just one way. It is a give and take deal. Same thing with our relationship with God, it is a give and take situation. God loves us so much that He was willing to do everything for us, and yet for so many God still ended up being rejected.
How To Overcome Rejection?
1. Acknowledge the fact that you are special in the eyes of God.
2. You are not obligated to keep pushing yourself into a relationship even though it hurts.
3. If you know you have done everything you could, no more explanations needed on your part.
4. Let go and let God handle the situation.
5. Allow God to fill your emptiness with His presence.
By acknowledging the fact that you are special in the eyes of God, you have open the door for God to show you, your value. The thing about God is that even though we can not see Him, His presence is always with us. God has given us the air that we can breath in and out, so we can live in this beautiful world He created for us to enjoy. Just think of the butterflies, the flowers, the trees, the animals, literally everywhere we turn around, there are beauties to behold. Now, look at yourself, God created you very special and unique. There is no one else like you. You have a unique DNA, fingerprints and absolutely special.
So why would you allow any rejections to hurt you from anyone, when your Creator loves you enough to care for every details of yourself and also every situation you are facing now? Embrace the love of God in your heart and know that when no else care, God is always there with you and for you, no matter what. I was once like you in the past, afraid of rejections and would do anything in the world just so I would not be rejected. But, the fact of the matter was that, I was buying love and attention. And the sad part, was that I still ended up being hurt. Not until I understand the love of God in my life and knowing how special I am in His eyes, that I let go of the hurt and embrace the love of God fully in my life.
No one else is pushing you into a relationship, so you don’t have to keep pushing it when you are not receiving the attention and affection in return. A lot of times we are the ones who put a lot of pressure on ourselves to get the relationships working. We keep insisting and hoping that the other person could see our efforts and maybe reciprocate in return. But, if the other person is really not in to you, and plainly doesn’t care, then you are wasting your time and efforts, because it will not work. And you will just end up getting hurt over and over again. Realizing this ahead of time and accepting that it is not meant to be, will save you a lot of tears and heartaches.
When you have been in a relationship and you are the one doing most of the initiating if not all, to try to work and patch up every situation every time when it was going bad, then don’t feel bad. Don’t feel bad and you should really just not say anything else. It does not matter how much you try to explain your side of the situation and the other person doesn’t care, you will just end up getting frustrated. Allow yourself to just calm down and quiet your mind in the knowledge that God knows all about your feelings and the situation. And that should really all that matters, you and God!
Simply, let go and let God handle everything. He knows about it already, and you can just go ahead and relax. God is really amazing, His grace is always abundant. You need to realize that as you rely on God and trust His process, more transformation in yourself and your situation will have. Because as you commit everything to God, He is not only working in your emotions, but he is also working in the other person’s heart. Spend time in prayer. That is your greatest investment to have a successful and positive result in your situation.
We all have an innate longings for an intimate relationship. We want intimacy. We want attention. We want to feel special and needed. Unfortunately, we can not always find it with our fellow human beings. So we resort to other things, or for so many we try to fill those emptiness through an animal or pet. These are good. We love our pets, and our pets loves us back. But, at the end of the day we are still human beings who have longings to be love by a person with the same emotions and feelings like us. So when we are not getting these intimacy we feel empty inside and our emotions ran low. But, I have good news for you. I have been there in your shoes many times in the past, and I finally found the one and the only person who has never fail me. And that person is God. Yes, God in His presence in my life. When I finally understood that He is the only One who is faithful and never changes, that’s when I had my aha moment!
And you know what? He is indeed faithful and always come to my rescue and comfort me every time when I was in trouble or was hurt. When no one else was around, God was there. When I was hurt and crying, He was there to comfort me. And you know what also? When no one else was listening, He was with me listening to my heart and filling my heart with His love and comfort . He always gives me peace that surpasses all understanding. I don’t know about you, but until you let go and let God, and fill your emptiness inside, you will always be vulnerable for pain of rejection. I highly recommend to give God a chance, to make you feel secure in His love. Take it from me, I was the most insecure person you will ever know in the past. But, God has turned all of that around. I am now a very confident person knowing that no matter what happens in this life, I will always have God to guide me, comfort me, and most of all the One who loves me and always listening to me. God is Someone who will never reject me and will always have my back, and assuring me every time, telling me I’ve got this!
