On today’s episode of ShrinkChicks, Emmalee and Jen cover the topic of rejection. They start the episode off by addressing a listener question that asks “how to get over rejection?” The hard truth is that rejection is inevitable - and so they give us all tangible ways to learn to deal with rejection and the feelings that accompany it. Emmalee and Jen discuss rejection’s connection to shame and embarrassment, the fear of rejection and how to overcome it, how to work on not taking rejection personally, the grieving process that can come after being rejected, their personal experiences with rejection (specifically re: dating), why it’s so hard to get over rejection from an ex, and so much more! Dear Em & Jen answers a question about boundaries as they relate to rejection. Tune in to gain insight, awareness, and action!
