Rejection can be viewed as either protection or redirection. Pick one, and you’re probably right. Unrequited love.
Who needs it? Dating can be such a chore at times. You have to weave through incidents and accidents of the getting to know them phase. Then later, after you’ve invested valuable time and effort, they leave you. They leave you sometimes broken, disheartened or confused. Sometimes all three.
After a lot of introspection, and several pints of ice cream, you come to realize that rejection is actually an external stimuli letting you know that something’s not quite right with them, not you. They’re not for you, so nature kicks them out. They don’t fit. It’s like trying to get a CD to fit into an ipod. It won’t fit.
So keep going. You’ll find your mate. And they’ll fit; perfectly. Stay the course and may the force be with you.
