It is a lot more than "Move on". It is a lot more than "Life is unfair at times." It doesn't stop at "Better luck next time." What you need to know is, rejection happens because there is someone better. But, that doesn't make you insignificant. It doesn't make you less capable. It doesn't even try to tell you that you are good for nothing. The problem is, we think rejection is not acceptable. We are conditioned to believe that rejection is always a negative thing to happen to anyone. Let me give you an example. Let's say you applied for a job and they rejected you. You gave your best but failed. The word 'fail'is not valid at all. You didn't fail, it is just that at that point in time there was someone better. And trust me, there will always be someone better. Let's look at love, my favourite and most romanticised. Let's just say you have been rejected a lot of times by people who you dearly admired and thought you couldn't do without them. They said no because they didn't like you. How about thinking, what if they thought you were too good? What if your personality and charisma intimidated you? What if your proposition put them in a spot because they clearly thought they didn't deserve someone like you? They said you weren't worthy enough, but how about thinking, how can they even judge you without giving it a try? See, people say a lot of things. They will tell you how ugly you are, how low your grades are, how dumb you can sound sometimes,etc. The query is, how do they gauge your potential? Is there a parameter? May be yes, may be not. Or you might believe there is one. Two years ago, a research proposal of mine was rejected when I applied for a travel grant. The same proposal plus paper won me an international recognition. I cried because I needed the money. But then, I developed it and it got accepted in a much larger platform. Just imagine what if I had dissed the idea of developing it. That incident taught me one thing, you don't get rejected, you just don't get selected. And that applies for every arena, admissions, jobs, love, society.
