When you feel rejected, there are a lot of ways you can respond.  Here are common ways that people react to rejection:

  • Attack back.
  • Search for clarity.
  • Apologize.
  • Dismiss the other person.
  • Deny that they were rejected and act as if nothing happened.
  • Highlight positives to minimize the effects of the rejection.
  • Isolate.
  • Take it personally – proof that there is something terribly wrong with them.
  • Believe that once rejected, they are likely to be rejected by all others.
  • Avoid activities where the possibility of rejection exists.
  • Imagine that rejection has occurred, when it actually hasn’t.
  • Take the blame for the rejection as if they have done something wrong or something to deserve the rejection.
  • Expect to be rejected rejection in day-to-day situations.
