By my EST you wrote your post at 1am.. It's no wonder you were slow to get replies.. I was asleep for nearly 2 hours by then..

I kind of like to wallow in my rejection for a while..But I'm better than I used to be.. rolling eyes

Thanks Donna, that's exactly what I'm looking for, something that turns my mind quickly from the rejection to the right direction. I suppose "Forgive them for they know not what they do" - is the line too. I want to try to put one of these in my head so it stays there and gets used. I appreciate all the other posts too - they are helpful as well. And looking up the Michael W. Smith's song and readings.

Hi Donna, that's okay - it gave me a chance to try out a line or two without actually being rejected directly wink

I really like this Catholic youtube video of "Blessed are they".

www.youtube.com

Imagining being the pope and getting shot and forgiving the shooter.


I'm not at all there yet. I hope to get to a point where I know the message to speak to myself when I feel rejected to be thankful for the opportunity to be forgiving - really is that it ??? What should we be saying to ourselves? There is also the not being a doormat thing in meek. So, set expectations correctly up front, right?

Hi Andrea, sometimes it just means you dodged a bullet! It may hurt really bad, but then you come to know more about the person and think, "phew". I'm not a big country music fan, but I love the words for Unanswered Prayers by Garth Brooks:

Just the other night a hometown football game
My wife and I ran into my old high school flame
And as I introduced them the past came back to me
And I couldn't help but think of the way things used to be

She was the one that I'd wanted for all times
And each night I'd spend prayin' that God would make her mine
And if he'd only grant me this wish I wished back then
I'd never ask for anything again

[Chorus]
Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
Remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs
That just because he doesn't answer doesn't mean he don't care
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

She wasn't quite the angel that I remembered in my dreams
And I could tell that time had changed me
Inn her eyes too it seemed
We tried to talk about the old days
There wasn't much we could recall
I guess the Lord knows what he's doin' after all

And as she walked away and I looked at my wife
And then and there I thanked the good Lord
For the gifts in my life

GOOD Attitude. I always take the WYSIWYG approach. If somebody doesn't like what they see in me, I'm better off without them.

Rejection may be used to humble one's soul. Only a humble soul can receive the grace of God. biggrin

WE should tell oursleves that REJECTION is GOD'S PROTECTION. This is a saying we have developed here on this site. It encourages us and helps the new comers develop a good perspective. We come here so bright eyes and naive. It is nto always eay to find an appropriate person who is interested in us. So WE have lots to learn in the meantime.
But many do find the person and MANY do have SUCCESS. heartbeat theheart
