May our heart's garden of awakening bloom with hundreds of flowers.

Fear of rejection

You won’t get anyone to say yes unless you’re willing to take the risk that they’ll say no. To get the answer you seek, you must ask.

When you ask, there is the possibility of rejection. And though rejection may seem like something to avoid, is it really so bad?

What’s much, much worse is to live in fear of rejection. When you never even ask, the answer is always no.

What if you could simply let go of that fear of rejection? The fact is, you can.

Some people will value what you say, what you do, what you seek, and other people won’t. Keep reminding yourself that’s their concern, not yours.

Choose to do what you know is worthy and what you know is best. Let go of the useless and limiting fear of rejection, and feel the freedom to truly soar.

— Ralph Marston
