Social Rejection: How To Deal With It In 3 Simple Steps

 By Michael Lee


Social rejection is a more serious problem than it appears to be. Sometimes, in our lives, we might feel like outcasts...

We might feel like we're not from this world. We might feel like loners without friends to support us, or strangers who have been shunned by the whole world. We might feel that we don't fit in. If you feel this way, don't worry!

Many people also tend to feel like this, although a good majority of them fail to solve this problem by themselves. It is very important to know how to deal with social rejection, as this will greatly affect your life later on.

Below are a few guidelines to follow if you want to know how to handle social rejection.

Step 1: Is It Me?

First, know what makes people reject you. Ask yourself: "What am I doing that irritates others?"

Check every single inch of your attitude and behavior; the smallest thing can upset people. From top to bottom, from inside out, you mustn't miss even one small detail of you, so think hard.

Step 2: Commit To Change.

Change whatever it is that you think irritates people. Is it that you are too talkative? Maybe you act very childish? Do you overreact? Or is it because you are too boastful of your skills?

Some people tend to be really picky about their friend's attitudes. One small thing can make you and another, friends or enemies. Try your best to change your ways. The small sacrifices you make will pay off largely very soon and social rejection will be a thing of the past.

Step 3: Keep Moving Forward.

Next, you must tell yourself that you can do this. Some people tend to feel too bad about themselves so much, that they think everything they do is wrong.

What you should do is to believe that you can change, to believe in yourself that you will be accepted if you change your ways.

This is a very important step in dealing with social rejection. Changing your attitude might take a while, and it might take a lot of determination. Whenever you feel that you cannot do it, always remember what good the result of this will bring to you.

These three simple things are the most essential things to take note of when dealing with social rejection, but there is one more thing you must remember...

While you may try your very best to be sociable to other people, bear in mind that you cannot please everybody; so when a single person shuns you, you must get a hold of yourself and learn to let it go.

Just follow the three steps above, and you will be able to handle social rejection effectively.

  1. I'd like to say this: Sometimes a person can do everything they know how to do and then some, have a positive attitude and be willing to change, and STILL get rejected. Life just aint fair. There are so many things that you simply have no control over; and that does include other people. At the end of the day, when people reject you no matter how hard you try it's because of THEM, not you. I see a lot of parallels between social and romantic rejection. The's only 1 thing you can do to overcome social rejection, and that thing is to just accept it and Move On.
