How I Learned Perseverance from Being Rejected

by jamieenglishorg

Rejection is not easy but it certainly has a divine purpose.

I loved someone who was a part of my life for many, many years. I loved them beyond their obvious and not so obvious flaws.

I loved their dedication..

..their fight, their attitude toward overcoming obstacles.I considered this love to be unconditional mainly because I loved them so much even when I wasn’t getting even a small percentage ..

I was loving them more than I loved myself ..

..which is a road to disaster. When I got tired of being constantly rejected and I wanted to change my life for the better.I was rejected for wanting to change my life..

I was rejected for being the woman of God I was becoming..

This person ended up denying me, betraying me and unwelcoming me from their life.Even the times I was too weak to fight for myself and fought for them, I was still dismissed, denied and rejected.

This person ended up denying me, betraying me ..

and unwelcoming me from their life. Even the times I was too weak to fight for myself and fought for them, I was still dismissed, denied and rejected.

The reason I was denied…I was no stranger too.

In fact, it is because of my lack of discernment in my past, lack of paying attention amongst other things that I ignored the signs that are so clear and evident today.

I didn’t want to lose them from my life.

I even ignored my dreams that warned me therefore, I ignored God. That is one of my biggest regrets because it ended up costing me dearly.

The Cycle of Rejection

This person denied and rejected me because they were denied and rejected as a child by both parents. In turn, the unresolved pain they carried into their adulthood ..

I was able to recover because I’d been here before..

so I knew what I needed to do to get out of the pain of rejection. While my heart was breaking, I was also learning about perseverance in the process.

Perseverance to start and continue fighting for me...

to learn who I was as a woman and the power I have within that I wasn’t even aware of in the past.

So out of being constantly rejected, I was able to:

– Keep fighting spiritually without quitting – Embrace rejection – I learned that rejection is not the final destination – Take action and celebrate small battles

It was in these moments..

that perseverance was birthed out of the pain of rejection so we need a certain level of pain in order to learn a lesson that we need in life that will follow us all of our days.

Rejection is necessary for a successful life.

It’s up to you to determine how you will learn and grow from it.

@jamieenglishorg Rejection is, as you say. an abject lesson in life. It can also be a message that somehow, you need to improve your approach to the relationship. Are you considering a convent? You seem to be sublimating your organic human needs in favor of some kind of spiritual fervor. Rejection does not mean that there is something wrong with the person doing the rejecting. Your standards may be different. It appears from your post you have had a good catharsis. Just remember, he ain't the only fish​ in the sea.
