Takes a leap to put myself out there. If I make the effort, rejection is hard.
If I don't, then I really don't care.

Being rejected is a normal part of life....therefore adults who still find rejection hard for them to handle is usually because THEY are their own worst critics/enemies in their own minds, thus imagining that other people must think the same way about them as they think about themselves.

See, now....i see that differently. I think that a person with low self esteem would expect rejection with resignation. Maybe even be somewhat relieved to not have to live up to what he/she might feel are unreachable expectations.

I was raised to see my fill of the glass of water in my life to always view my glass of water as ALWAYS being half FULL, not being half EMPTY no matter the consequences of my poor choices in my life. Whereas some adults with their issues still want to blame their upbringing, their parents/someone/anyone as the REASON as to WHY they can not see their cup in life as being half FULL instead of being half EMPTY. At some point in life one can no longer blame others as to why they're not happy living in a free country.

Not in my top 5 fears these days, but feeling rejected by someone who really matters to me, is way up there in the worst feelings ever.

When I found out that my lifelong friend for DECADES who I completely trusted more than anyone in my life for DECADES had betrayed me ...I did not feel "rejected" at all by her...yeah my 1st immediate reaction was of course to "feel hurt" finding this info out about her, but my 2nd immediate thought was that I was done with our friendship no matter what her excuses were.
Ah the ironic part is now that 5 years have gone by SHE now feels that I was the one who killed/ "rejected" our life long friendship lol!!?? Did I mention she's a liberal/progressive?? lol

Fear of rejection is not even on my list of fears, only because since I was little I knew/was raised to believe by my parents that being rejected(not winning/being the best at something or a friend no longer wanting to be my friend anymore) was just a NORMAL part of growing up and for me to reflect on that "rejection" as a lesson in life to LEARN and GROW from that experience of me feeling "rejected" ...eh but I also grew up in a different era when not every kid made the team nor got a shiny trophy when their team LOST a championship game.
