Rejection Shows Up In Our Life When…
How Rejection Can Make You Feel

Small acts of rejection, if not processed correctly, can have a compounding effect and lead to bigger issues later in your life.

Who Hurt You? Who Disappointed You?

We Attract What We Haven't Healed
You Reap What You Sow

We Can’t Run From The Rejection Inside Of Us; We Have To Deal With It
What you don’t heal from, you will continue to multiply in your lives

To be loved
To belong
