Your frustration and low morale will have negative effects on your emotions and on your health. Whether you’ve received negative feedback or been rejected, all of these can take a toll physically and emotionally.
Here are a few quick tips to help you handle rejection:
Think about the feedback from a different perspective. This may keep you from taking it personally. Try not to jump to conclusions - maybe they are having a bad day and not rejecting you personally. Take some time to think about it for a few days before you judge it. Focus on more positive thoughts and joyous events. Don’t stay focused on the rejection. Try to be empathetic to the situation and the parties involved. Give them space and allow them to cool off. Don’t react out of anger and don’t react to the person - judgment is clouded when we are angry. Take an analytical approach to the issue. Think like a scientist and keep emotions out of it.
