The fear of rejection has prevented more friendships, more relationships, and more networking opportunities than you could ever possibly imagine.
If you hope to build strong social relationships with others, you’re just going to have to accept the fact that you’re going to get rejected at one point or another… and that’s okay. Rejection is not the end of the world. You’re perfectly capable of dealing with rejection and moving on with your life.
Stop thinking about why people would want to reject you and focus on what you have to offer. What makes you unique? What makes you interesting? Everyone has something special to offer, including you. If you can accept the fact that not everyone is going to like you, your social life will flourish. Highlight your unique qualities and enjoy the opportunity to connect with new and interesting personalities.
