Not Without Your Permisson

"To fear rejection is to believe insufficiently in the self. For a self that is whole seeks to share its gifts with others, while a self that is doubting must receive these gifts from the world."

Julie Redstone, from Meditations on Love, Relationships, and Letting Go; #88.

Fearing rejection...man, they teach that in schools all over the world. Get this grade or wear this or walk like this or talk like that or drive this or be angry or be whatever to fit in and stay away from being rejected.

Rejection can come in many forms and in many venues, but the bottom line is rejection comes from within. One allows it in and allows it to be a part of life. If you see the world as a place that is rejecting you, then you need to take a look at how you see the world. No one can reject you without your permission.

Can the NWTA change that thinking, or any other thinking, for you? Not likely. The NWTA is a place, an event if you will, to start talking a look at how you show up in the world. It is an opportunity to spend 48 hours looking at what works for you and what doesn't in the presence of men who have also done this work.

I'm just sayin'...

I'm out.
