Rejection Issues Revised — Part II

Last week I talked about anger, and how an emotional wound of rejection feels—paper cut vs. knife to the heart. How do we get past this? That’s what this series is all about. We need to release anger in a “healthy” non-destructive way. In order to do that we cannot carry the anger around with us like a ball and chain—because that’s exactly the picture of unforgiveness and carrying grudges.  #rejectionissues #rejectionsymptoms #rejectionhope TWEETABLE

The emotional pain is sometimes more than we can bear. We want to nurse it, to carry it like a newborn baby that needs special care.

But when we do this, it only hurts us.

Think about an emotional wound you’ve received. Look at it. Ask yourself these questions:

  • How long ago was it?
  • What were the circumstances?
  • Why did it hurt so bad?
  • What did you do at the time to try to move past it?
  • Or did you try?
  • Do you still carry the wound?
  • Or is it a scar that when bumped, reveals more pain and “infection” in your emotions?

Once you’ve answered these questions, ask yourself—and search your heart.

Are you ready to move past the pain?

If you are, we’ll talk about that next week. It won’t be fun. It won’t be easy. You’ll have to make that decision. There’s a process (and this blog is all about process) — a journey, if you will, to emotional freedom and healing.

That’s what I’m about these days. Freedom and healing.

Are you ready to move past your pain? #rejectionissues #rejectionsymptoms #rejectionhope TWEETABLE

For a purpose

The blog site of Rick Wade


Where it is a good thing to be an outcast.


We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; let your light shine through your cracked pot. Ring the bells that still can ring, Forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything, That's how the light gets in and comes out.
