I can’t think of one person that like to be rejected. It is the one thing that still can deal me the most misery today; being rejected. We can learn to deal with it; even Jesus was rejected by His friends.
There is nothing that hurt us as much as being rejected; whether it is by friends, family or even total strangers. There has been times in my life when I have been rejected by those closest to me, folk I hardly knew and there was even a time when I felt like God had rejected me. In other words, we all know what it feels like to be rejected. One thing that has helped me learn to deal with rejected is to know when I am the one doing the rejecting. Learning not to reject others has really helped me deal with being rejected. As we deal with our self-image we also learn how to deal with rejection. When we learn who we are and that we have a destiny, we have value and worth then it is really hard for the sting of rejection to get to us like it once did.
