How many of you remember the quote “those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it?” rejection
In other words… why do some people keep doing the same thing that continually causes them pain? Why can’t they stop? The answer May fool you.
Rejection causes some funny things to happen to people. It causes them to do things that they normally wouldn’t do, think things they normally wouldn’t think, and love lives that they really don’t want to live.
When an individual keeps thinking about the pain of rejection and what it is done to their lives causes a habit to form where this individual will think again and again and again about the pain.
Let’s look at a couple of habits that we all know about like smoking, overeating or drinking too much alcohol.
All of these things create a habit in the brain that one cannot stop or at least they would have an extreme amount of difficulty without professional help.
I realize that I’m talking about substances here but this habit produces a chemical that is very similar to an addictive chemical.
So this individual actually lives for the pain because the pain provides them with the chemical that they are addicted to.
THE WAY HOME
There is a way out of all of this and it’s not as difficult as you may think.
We must to pay attention to our response to rejection. The bitterness, the anguish, the sadness and everything else connected with it is not God’s will for lives.
People process this pain differently, not the same way that another person might. So you can’t put everyone in the same box so to speak.
Temperament plays a large part in all of this and so depending on your temperament you will approach the answer to all of this differently
Knowing what your temperament is can be a definite life-changer! It will answer the questions about yourself that you had, the ones that you could never find answers for in the past.
