OUT August 2016 Theme: Dealing with rejection

• Don’t take it personally: there are times in our lives when we are rejected simply because of timing.

• Think positively: think about all the times when you have said no to others as well.

• Pay attention and listen carefully to the reason for the rejection. This will tell you if you have a second chance or not.

• Be kind to yourself, since rejection is a disappointment. Use positive self-talk and encouragement.

• Know that everyone gets rejected. Try and try again.
