An important part of healing after experiencing rejection is practicing self-care. Be intentional about making time to take care of yourself mentally, physically, emotionally, and/or spiritually. Listen to your body and reflect on what you need to recharge and build yourself back up. Be gentle and kind to yourself. You deserve to take care of your needs and focus on yourself. We encourage you to identify things that you can do to promote relaxation, wellness, and joy in your life. Make time for yourself and practice self-care often!
Another key component in taking care of your mental, emotional, and spiritual needs is to seek professional counseling! Counselors can help you process your emotions and cultivate a path of healing and growth after experiencing rejection. If you feel like you are having a hard time coping with rejection and healing on your own, we encourage you to reach out to a counselor for some extra support. Know that seeking support from a counselor is also important even if you don’t feel like you’re struggling and have a handle on things.
