All of us, at one time or another, has faced the pain of rejection.  Rejection from a lover is a pain that most of us will bear scars from, in one way or another, for a very long time.  

For some the attempt to deal with this rejection turns into anger and bitterness, which in turn, leads to rejection for the negativity that is shown, and so the cycle continues…

For others the fear of further rejection can hold back even the seemingly “most confident” of people… a nagging doubt in the back of your mind can turn into a screaming monster that deafens and deadens feelings and emotions.

People deal with this in a variety of ways, from sleeping around, not getting involved or refusing to have anything more than friendship, scared of the possibility of rejection again.

How we deal with this is a very personal thing, we all have our own ways of handling and coping with it .. whether we ever truly get over it is a different matter but time is a great healer, eventually pain easies, memory fades and life can seem just a little bit sunnier.

Roll on the sunshine…
