The cognitive distortions can subsequently result in the individual experiencing undue anxiety, depression, and negative self-feelings.Some cognitive distortions applicable to this situation are: Let's get something clear, dating is indeed "discriminatory". No matter what the reason, not getting what we want can be a negative experience.The reality of life is that rejection will form a part of it––there will be occasions when your job application, your date request or your ideas for change will be rejected by someone, somewhere.It is a healthy attitude to accept that rejection is a part of life and to acknowledge that what really matters is finding the way to bounce back and try again. You just need to keep your head up and move on because getting rejected is a normal part of life.Welcome back to The Attraction Doctor I've received multiple requests to discuss a difficult dating topic - "dealing with rejection". The misconceptions, bad behavior, and hard feelings surrounding rejection can sometimes create deep wounds.I've seen too many good men and women suffer needlessly because of it.The term "getting rejected" (and the like) falsely puts the blame on the individual for the "rejection".
But there is someone out there for everyone, so just keep going.
The advice above is contingent on you making the request in a manner that respects the legal rights and stated preferences of others.
You are entitled to make your request in a respectful and civil manner. Furthermore, you are responsible for respecting their choice.
BUT, those negative feelings are made MUCH worse by false assumptions about rejection (the cognitive distortions above). There are many reasons why someone can be disinterested and very few of them relate to you at all.
If those false assumptions are corrected, then the majority of negative feelings can be avoided. This is even MORE true, in instances where the other person is needlessly abusive or shaming.
