      Hi Addie,
      Jia Jiang’s TED Talk about Rejection Therapy is really interesting. What I came away with is that if we stop being afraid of being rejected we will take more risks asking for what we truly DO want. And the amazing thing is… we just might get it!

      You have articulated such profound truths here! Where the rubber meets the road truths! Thank You!

      I definetlty AVOID rejection! Oddly enough though, God has used rejection to show me that I am NOT less valuable than those who reject me.

      In one group I’m in one of the ladies does not respond to my comments on our group text thread. For 8 years in this group I allowed her disinterest to confirm the enemies lie that I was not wanted or needed in that group. But Year 9 God broke thru and convinced me that though I was very different than the gals in this group…sometimes less educated or less traveled or less trained in the social graces of life, that I was NOT less than.

      I’m MOST grateful for His kindness in using rejection for good in my life.

        Wow, Annie! Thank you for sharing your personal experience feeling rejected because of one person’s prolonged disinterest. I am amazed that you stuck in there for 9 years. You have more courage than you may realize. And… you are definitely NOT less than anyone! ~ Salina

    These are really helpful concepts, Salina! I will try to keep these in mind in the future.

    Hi There!
    I so agree. I especially like the last one, when you speak about not taking rejection personally. I believe not taking it personally is the chief ingredient of being unstoppable. It gives a separation to the challenge and gives a clearer view. I would go a bit further and see that what feels like discomfort is a blessing in disguise. My belief is it is all good. I also agree that we have to learn to look at discomfort differently. We do have to embrace it in order to see the benefits, like you mentioned.
    I can think of another benefit that is kinda a side benefit. It also helps us become more emotionally stronger. This builds resolve on the quality of our mission of Being Unstoppable.
    Thank You
    Sal

      Hi Sal. You make several good points, particularly about viewing discomfort as a blessing in disguise. That is not a popular notion, particularly when we are in the throws of extreme or prolonged pain. Yet, I have to believe that God uses everything for a purpose. If that’s true, then embracing whatever comes along is the wisest (and ultimately least painful) response.Thank you for sharing your wisdom and helping me be unstoppable!
