Over the span of a person’s lifetime, there will be times when they will experience some form of rejection by their family, friends or even those in the community in which they live and work. To a certain degree, rejection is not always a bad thing. It only becomes an unpleasant event when an individual encounters it on a continuous basis.
Being rejected by others for most people gives them the opportunity to discover who they were created to be. However, for others being rejected by people pose as a negative experience and often causes them to develop low esteem as well as the tendency to second guess their self-worth. But I would disagree with that notion. Oftentimes, the very people or groups we are trying to belong to could be wrong for us because of our affiliation with them could, in fact, draw us away from the path that God has planned for us to travel and the lessons he designed for us to learn along the way.
With that being said sometimes rejection could be considered a good thing to experience despite the negativity associated with its meaning.
