Even It’s Hard, Speak Up

Remember the last time you tried to open-up, yet you feel rejected by the friends you trust the most? You hear the words, “C’mon dude, it can’t be that bad” or “hey, I guess you’re just having a bad day, it shall pass.”

Rejections, rejections, does this world ever run out of rejections?

The bad news is, it doesn’t. The world is blindly going by it’s daily routine without noticing that there are people who looks fine but they are not doing good inside. This world will be full of people who are willing to listen, and cope up with your pain. However, the good news is, there are people tenacious and committed enough to help and understand you.

Tine will come that you will eventually encounter people who are more than willing to be with you through your pain, people that will be God’s instrument to your complete healing. However, majority of the people struggle in opening themselves up.

Though, don’t push it. You don’t have to tell 5 people at the same time what you’re going through. You can do it one at a time. I know the pain of rejection is just too much to bear, but you got to say it, tell your story. Because you also have to hear yourself.

What do I mean by that?

Don’t be intimidated by rejection. It comes in many forms, but there’s a more positive way of seeing it. Even if the people you expect to listen to you did not seem to be interested in your story, your inner-self will be thankful to you.

Sometimes, we need to hear our own story for us to vent out the feelings we are trying to express and suppress.

Even if it’s hard, speak up.

Try to engage in group discussion where people can relate to each other. No one can understand the pain you’re going through expect the people who have undergone the same pain you are experiencing.

It doesn’t have to be somebody who you think is knowledgeable in addressing your problem. Most of the time it is wiser to talk to people who are in the same boat as you.

So don’t fear, speak up!

    Good thoughts. Also, we speak up as we follow our example, Jesus, who spoke up in spite of the scowls of certain folks around him. He didn’t let the fear of man paralyze him.

    Most of us like it when others to listen to us, to our feelings and opinions. But there are so few listeners! When I just talk about how I feel, I find people quickly lose interest but it’s not “rejection” so much as they have their own issues bouncing around in their minds. So I want to learn how to listen to their feelings, too.
