And atrepparttar 102046 same time what we really want is to be loved and accepted by everyone - that would be bliss. It will never happen though because we all have biases,opinions and beliefs that colorrepparttar 102047 way we look atrepparttar 102048 world.

So people will reject us no matter how good we look, no matter how successful we are, and no matter how giving we are. If we were to become even nicer, and even more spiritually aware they would still reject us so it is a pointless battle trying to win over everyone.

However we can change how we think about rejection. If we changerepparttar 102049 meaning of rejection it can become our ally instead of our enemy.

So he says No, he is far to busy to help you today. Now immediately ask yourselfrepparttar 102054 feedback reframe question - how must I change my approach to get what I want?
