How to handle rejection in love?


One of the most difficult tasks for mankind is to cope with rejection in love. But the law of nature is to keep moving forward. Life is not meant to stand still and neither is this delicate human emotion called love.

  1. Change is the only constant – So said Heraclitus, the Greek philosopher, thousands of years ago. This has been tested by time and has been proved to be true, always. You need to accept that ‘Change’ is the way of life and nothing stays the same. Our inability to accept this truth is the major cause of all our pain. Accept it, and you’ll be able to come out of it.
  2. Humor in life – What generally happens when people get rejected, is they hook on to all those sad and heart breaking songs and movies to heal their wounds. I don’t think that it works. Instead it saddens you further and takes you into a permanent depression mode. Do the opposite. Listen to comic-funny songs and watch comedy shows. Humour is the best medicine for heartache. We don’t apply hot water on burns, right? Apply the same logic here as well.
  3. Stepping back temporarily – You already know the details. The more you are after the person you love, the further he/she gets away from you because it makes the latter think that you are intruding into their personal space and they get itchy about it. Leave your love alone for some time. Be happy in your world. This reverse love-o-logy often gets the person thinking of you and does wonders.
