Fear of rejection not only allows others to manipulate us; it can cause us to hurt in many other ways. Fear of rejection pressures us to conform to peer pressure. We tend to walk like other people, talk like other people, act like other people, and dress like other people. Why do we do this? We simply don’t want to be rejected. This keeps us from speaking the truth. Why do people lie? Why do people shade the truth? They do this because they’re afraid if they tell the truth they won’t be accepted.
Time for a new perspective! Put the opinions of others in a proper place. In other words, be mindful of what they say, but don’t overvalue it.
