Have you ever been rejected?

Maybe you were turned down for a job you thought you were the perfect fit or maybe your boss didn’t consider you for a promotion.

You may have also experienced rejection in your personal life.

Maybe your crush has no interest in you or the boyfriend you were ready to marry broke it off.

Whatever the case, rejection is hard.

It hurts, but we still need to know how to handle rejection with grace and gratitude.

1. Give Thanks

It may seem awkward to say thank you to someone who just turned you down, but it’s still important.

In the business world you are thanking the person for their time, the opportunity, and the fact that they even considered you for the position.

The fact that you even got an interview proves you were qualified, just not the right fit.

2. Ask Questions

It is perfectly acceptable to ask questions.

An explanation will help you understand where things went wrong and give you an idea on how to prepare better the next time.

It might also ease your mind in finding out the rejection wasn’t even about you.

3. It’s Not Always about You

Sometimes we get rejected by a friend or boyfriend and it stinks.

Know that the rejection may very well not even be about you.

Your friend might be having a bad day or woke up in a crappy mood.

Give her a day to recoup before reaching out to her again.

4. Accept It

Sometimes rejection is the universe way of getting rid of the bad.

Sometimes you just have to accept that this was not the best relationship or situation for you from the start.2

Being free of an old relationship that obviously wasn’t going to work out opens you up to the opportunity of a new and better relationship.
