HEALING HERBS: The way to fight rejection
“You cannot teach CXC history because you cannot analyse deeply”, is a genuine interpersonal rejection statement which I have successfully passed through.
When rejection statements like this are made I freeze in time and swiftly employ wisdom and love to escape those feelings of rejection.
Notably, I am at peace with myself and felt compelled to share with readers this life-changing experience with silent doctors and rejection.
Rejection is defined as “the dismissing or refusing of a proposal, idea, etc or the action of spurning a person’s affections”. The battle with rejection is usually unpleasant.
My first route of escape is usually to:
• Step back from the drama to think clearly.
• Don’t focus on you; instead analyse the negative statements and behaviours of the rejecter.
• Continue to focus on the rejecter because in most cases the person has a hidden agenda.
• When you implement the above measures you will have a better understanding about why the statements have been made so as to avoid damaging your own self-esteem.
• My analysis bought me to the realisation that (in one case) the rejecter feared me because of my abilities.
I eternally reminisce about the positive statements that people make about me. I always embark on an exercise retreat instead of hiding or cowering away in my home.
I also repeat positive affirmations; practice spiritual breathing, forgiveness and “letting go”; spend extra hours in my garden and share continuously with my supportive husband and close relatives. An aromatic bath in colic mint, blue vervain and bay leaf with a drop of rosemary is helpful. Soursop, ginger and garlic tea is healing.
I have discovered that no one can reject us, it is part of life. To truly overcome rejection we must embark on positive growth because wisdom dictates that the greatest counter to rejection is success. Enjoy the positive growth and enjoy it with passion. Remember, “The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.” Psalm 118:22.
