Rejection hurts, whether it's a spouse filing for divorce a friend ghosting, or not landing a job you want. Feeling shame, hurt, and sadness is completely normal when people don't feel accepted by others. Although rejection is a normal part of life at some point or another, some instances of rejection can be far more damaging than others. The professional therapists at 7 Cups are here to provide compassionate online therapy for rejection. No matter how painful the hurt may be, our therapists can lend a helping hand.
Why Rejection Hurts
As humans, we are wired to want to belong. It's part of our nature. When a person feels isolated, unwanted, and unloved, they begin to succumb to negative thoughts and beliefs about themselves and others. Instead of healing the wounds a rejection caused and moving on with life, it's easy to become trapped by the fear of rejection and sink further down into the shame of failure. Long-lasting feelings of rejection can have psychological effects such as chronic fear, anxiety, and depression.
Beating the Fear of Rejection
Facing feelings of rejection is difficult, but acknowledging the hurt opens the door to healing. Online therapy for rejection can help people develop resilience by exploring the possible reasons for chronic feelings of rejection. A therapist can help individuals address the fear of rejection and help you move on from past incidences of rejection by establishing a healthier mindset, deconstructing insecurities, and providing one-on-one support.

“Highly skilled, loves her job and she really tries her best to help by using a variety of ways and methods. A good listener, never avoids hard subjects and her questions and feedback are with a clear purpose. I have a lot of things going on at once that would require a wide range of skills and she seems equipped to handle all with professionalism and compassion. I am only on the start of a long journey towards healing but for the first time in the last 20 years there is hope. I contacted her half hearted and from the first answer I felt like finally here is someone that knows what she is talking about and has a clear plan of how to help me out of that mess. She responds even day in a very detailed way and she goes out of her way too to give an extra response when she feels that it’s needed. I write a lot and she keeps up with it all and she remembers details of what you mentioned before without confusing her clients or forgetting things that you answered before. She is really present and I truly believe that if you feel like you are giving up on life just hang in there just one more day and contact her before you make any rush decisions. ”
