Rejection: what if it's the change you've been asking for?
What if the rejection you just received is actually a sign that the change you've been asking for is showing up?
Have you ever dated the same type of person over and over again? Then you decided that enough was enough. You were going to change that pattern no matter what, so that you could have a relationship that actually works for you.
Then you go out with someone, and it seems great, and then they dump you.Or it blows up in your face. Or it turns out completely OPPOSITE of what you were hoping for!
Let's look at another example. You have been longing for a new job for a very long time. You may have even started looking at other positions, but you aren't quite ready to take that leap yet. Then one day, you get laid off. Or even worse: fired!
How could they do that to you? In either situation, you feel rejected, hurt, and sometimes embarrassed. But what if this rejection is actually the change you've been longing for, and it's just showing up in a completely different way than you expected?
Sometimes the things that were no longer working for us have to leave our life in order for there to be room for what we would actually like to have to show up. Yes, it can be painful. Sometimes, it's terrible!
But I invite you to take another look at the situation. If it had turned out the way you planned, would it actually even be what you want? Have you been settling? This may be life's way of pushing you wayyy out of your comfort zone. It might be uncomfortable, but it opens the door for you to receive what it is you would actually LOVE to have.
Now is the time my friends! Enough settling. I wonder what amazing possibilities can show up in your life now?
Be brave! Take the leap! If you don't, life might take it for you! ;)
Catch ya later,
