Canadian Health Magazine: Rejection hurts [cached]
"We all have a fundamental need to belong and be loved," adds Leah MacInnes, president of the British Columbia Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and a therapist in private practice in Victoria. Research shows that being rejected even by people we've just met can be painful, too.
The degree to which such rebuffs affect a person depends on the individual's level of confidence and self-assurance.
A more vulnerable person may carry attachment wounds from an impaired bond with a caregiver in early childhood or a past adult relationship that set them up to take rejection badly. "If you've never felt securely attached in previous relationships or you've had difficult relationships in the past or numerous rejections, you're going to feel worse and you're going to be more sensitive to rejection," says MacInnes.
Check out these rehabilitative tips from family therapist Leah MacInnes and psychologist Jessica Cameron.
Talk about the rejection with someone you trust, and allow yourself to grieve and to experience the full extent of your emotions, says MacInnes.
Once you've acknowledged the rejection as a permanent loss, recognize that you can move on and have better relationships with other people, says MacInnes.
