Rejection is a powerful tool. And not so much because of the action itself,but more cause of the effects it causes… The subject that carried out the action of rejection all of a sudden becomes miles more desirable. And that is where the power underlies. Rejection gives you the upper-hand,when you never dreamed about it before…
I’m sure everyone knows the feeling of desperately wanting something as soon as you realise you cannot have it. I believe it underlies in our nature. Fair enough, you may not be a Christian, but you certainly know the story of Adam and Eve: they could not resist the apple just because it was forbidden. And whether you believe the whole story or not,it’s too blatant to try to deny that human nature is soooo messed up we always want things that are forbidden… or people that rejected us.
One might think it’s the perfect tactic to make someone keen on you, but great carefulness is necessary in this case. Once you rejected someone you might never win that someone back. Even though, as I’ve said, I believe that rejection makes you want something even more; I also believe that not all of us would still wanna come back to the game after being rejected… Some just might walk away.
And if you’re the object not the subject of rejection… well choose your path and stick with it. Either keep on fighting for what you want or just let it go. Closure takes time but it does happen. Don’t stay on the fence cause it’s the worse you can do – it will just make you miserable.
All in all, rejecting or being rejected: you can always find your way out of if and find piece with yourself. So don’t hesitate, just do it!
Good night, kidos xx
