rejectionoooh, the sting of rejection.

you put yourself out there,
hoping to meet with acceptance,
to find love,
to fit.

you took a risk and exposed the very heart of who you are. all your jagged, glittering bits spilled out in the hopes that someone would see the pieces and instantly recognize a magical match.

instead, you were dismissed, disregarded, declined, and derailed. 

rejected.

coldly.
bluntly. 
rudely.
softly.
tenderly.
ignored.
laughed at.

doesn’t matter.

it takes courage to bare your heart, to share your gifts and to let others catch a glimpse of your light. when that kind of openhearted risk is met with rejection, you’ll likely feel small, maybe childlike – angry, hurt, sad, abandoned – worthless. not good enough.

trust.
it wasn’t the time.
the opportunity.
the one.

it sucks.
it might hurt.
you might feel humiliated.
hot with embarassment.
or deeply flawed and unloveable.

but KNOW

the Universe is full of opportunities, people, relationships, love, places and spaces and treasures – and you are one of those. there will be those who can’t see your radiance. it doesn’t mean you aren’t worthy, it means something better is going to meet you along the way. and all you have to do to get there is love yourself.

choose you.
nurture you.
protect you.
value you.

love you.
i do.
