Rejection is when someone says no to your proposal. This can come in the form of job applications, writing submissions, asking someone out, or anything else where no is the answer. Rejection causes a reaction in our brains which is associated with pain, so for many people, it’s tough to handle rejection. In some cases, you may never take risks because of the fear of being rejected. These articles talk about why we are so afraid of rejection, and what you can do to treat your fear of it. Learning about what rejection does to the mind can help you learn how to take risks and handle someone telling you no.
