Can rejection ever be a good thing? I never thought it could but experience has taught me differently.
There is a direct correlation to a lack of protection from our fathers and a fear of rejection. In my last post, I explained how fathers are intended to teach us to take risks. When we don’t feel confident in taking risks, we learn to fear failure.
However when we learn to fail well, we can overcome the fear of rejection.
Today I’m sharing a story for Prodigal Magazine about what I learned from dealing with rejection. It’s my contribution in their “What Does It Mean To Be A Man?” series. I’m excited because it ties in well to my current series on Daddy Issues.
Head over there and read my post titled, “Dealing With Rejection“. Let me know what you think right here or in the comments over there.
