Rejection with a Capital “R”

Rejection is one of the worst feelings to endure especially when they happen in quick succession. Whether it’s not getting a response to an email, finding out news through the grapevine, or being told no, deciding how to address the rejection isn’t that easy.

This past week, there was an event I really wanted to go to but I couldn’t get the time from my job. In this case, I asked for advice. No truly is a complete sentence. It was in my best interest not to attend the event. I had to weigh the consequences as well as the benefits. The consequences outweighed the benefits.  Sometimes what I am interpreting as rejection may be an expiration date. That’s hard to stomach at times but I also have to be a realist. I, again, have to weigh the circumstances.  Not everything lasts forever though that’s what I want. Or is it?

Then I had to take a moment and look at the opposite of rejection. For me, it’s inclusion. In quick succession, I realized how fortunate I am to be included in something bigger than myself. Plus it’s my choice how I handle both.

And with that, I have to remember that everything comes with its opposite.

If you are free on Tuesday, I am doing a staged reading of Pirandello’s Sicilian Limes at The Players Club.
