It is safe to be rejected

It is safe to be rejected

It is normal to fear rejection. We can’t pretend that it is not painful or scary to

put one self in situations where there is a risk of being rejected.

Nor am I saying that we have to constantly put our nervous system through a situation where it is constantly in danger of being destabilised by rejection.

However we can be too risk averse, we can over value safety at the risk of stagnation and powerlessness. I speak to women who know exactly what they need to get ahead but they won’t do it because of this fear. Especially when it requires a frank conversation that puts them at risk of being rejected.

Ambition has a cost and the cost requires one to be uncomfortable from time to time. This is a reminder that it is safe to feel unsafe sometimes. It is safe to be open to, to give people the permission to reject you. The work becomes building the emotional capacity to handle disapproval and rejection from others without being too destabilised
