Were you or someone you love recently rejected? It’s always hard to navigate those waters (no matter which end you’re on).

“Dealing with rejection is something everyone faces at some point in their lives, whether that’s not getting hired for a job or accepted into an organization, having one of your ideas shut down, or being friend-zoned.
Although your self-esteem almost always takes a blow from rejection, some people are more affected by it than others. Finding healthy ways to cope with rejection can help you get through it without it taking a huge toll on your mental health.”
