These are some of the feelings and emotions that rejection in a relationship can bring on especially if the relationship ended suddenly. The fact that someone you cared about or even genuinely loved decided to end the relationship leaves you with the lingering questions of:
- Is there something wrong with me?

And the list goes on. You might not notice it but it can leave an impact on your self-esteem, confidence and even on forming new relationships. However, you need to ensure that the new chapter in your life begins on a positive note. Here are tips:
Build a circle of support: Don’t stay alone. Talk with your family and friends. You might not feel like discussing your issues or being in a crowd, but moping alone doesn’t help either.
Keep busy: Put in extra hours at work or maybe volunteer at the hospital. Just stay busy. Not only will it help you do something productive and the appreciation will do you good. And you might make new friends and socialize better.
Stay open to love: Just because you were rejected in a relationship doesn’t mean that you had issues. Love can be round the corner so stay positive and let the past relationships not become barriers to finding your true love.
