We’re always girding ourselves for rejection, when we should be preparing ourselves for no response at all – a.k.a. “getting ghosted”
Because let’s face it, rejection is actually a form of generosity.
As much as it hurts, it also provides:
And peace of mind.
See if this helps:
Before you press SEND in that next email:
Have I offered enough
To give myself peace of mind
That I said what I needed to say
With as much clarity as possible
So that my recipient knows
How to respond
With minimal effort.
After you press send:
Try wishing your recipient well in their business, their personal safety, and happiness
And ask yourself:
Is it possible
In this moment
To let go?
