Rejection

Everyone has been rejected, and rejection hurts. But it only hurts if you care about who is rejecting you.

Fortunately, rejection isn’t fatal and we eventually heal from it. But don’t let the pain be wasted. Use it as fuel to further your cause. Reach out to others who are hurting, not to commiserate but to share your experience, strength and hope.

I’ll say it again. Rejection hurts. Don’t waste the experience…

Empathy

Empathy is shared experience. Who is better qualified to talk with an alcoholic than another alcoholic? In fact, talking about their drinking experiences is how Bill W. and Dr. Bob came to be the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous.

The pain and struggles you have gone through can be used to help others. Our world needs encouragement and hope. Your pain has purpose. Don’t waste it by keeping it to yourself…

Heartache

Everyone experiences heartache and pain. Sometimes it’s so severe you don’t believe you will get through it, after the loss of a child, for example.

Pain can be used for purpose. Think of it as fuel that intensely drives you to bring good from the bad. Doing good in the world won’t take away the hurt and pain, but at least you will know it wasn’t wasted…
