Fear of rejection
What I say...
Okay, my first encounter with rejection fear comes from my experience of approaching women, women I do not know. So many thoughts spinning around my head, as I contemplate what (if you think about it) is the simple act of approaching another human being and engaging with them.
You know, like you did as if it were nothing when you were a child.
And all in the vain (and false) hope that the thinking will bring 'protection' - a protection from life, no less!
In short, rejection fear stops you 'asking' for anything.
So you can see why one of the most common fears is, at best, a hindrance to all of us - at least the way that we currently allow rejection fear to limit our lives.
Hmm, well... I guess it's embarrassing to say the least when a woman rejects your advances (or when a man says 'no thanks'), and you might feel awkward when the boss gives you lots of great reasons why now is not the time for a pay-rise. And...
And? And this rejection is usually nothing much worse than that, if truth be told. If truth be told it's not long before we can laugh at the embarrassing situation with 'X', when you got turned down badly. (I know that I have a few 'horror stories' that I am more than happy to smile at, now.)
In fact, I actually think that 'rejection' is frightening because we don't face up to our deepest fear enough.
Maybe we should all expose ourselves to that feeling of 'rejection' once a week so that we become blasé (and bored) of the fear of rejection. I'm sure the experiences would prove instructional - "Hmm, I wonder why I got rejected this time?" - and this fear would soon stop being one our top 10 fears.
Are thoughts our enemy, then? Or should we just not take them so seriously?...
