Everyone experiences fear of rejection at one point or another in life, but having an intense fear of rejection can easily stifle growth and have a negative impact on relationships.

Here are a few tips that can help you overcome your fear of rejection.

Look For the Root Cause

If you are struggling with any fears, looking for the cause of those fears is important. Often what is actually triggering our fears can be quite different than the behavior we are displaying. Learning the root cause of our fear of rejection will help create a treatment plan.

Focus on Self-Talk

How you speak to yourself has a direct impact on your mental health. Talk to yourself like you would talk to a friend. If your friend was concerned about rejection, chances are you would remind them of how capable and talented they are. Do the same for yourself.

Create Goals

Create goals directly related to your fears. Include small steps to achieve your large goals. Rejection is tough, but your positive mindset will help you to feel better about it. Remember the changes you want to make and how you plan to get there.
