If you have a score of 25 or more
If your score had a result of “you’re sometimes not in control” or “your fear of rejection controls you” it’s likely you’re not living the life you desire, with emotional obstacles and mental hurdles (both real and imagined) that can cripple you.
How did your fear or rejection affect you to this extreme?Many reasons account for your crippling fear of rejection, but one powerful basis for developing such deep sensitivity to rejection is your childhood experience. It could be from well-intentioned and loving parents, or emotionally or physically abusive relationships with your loved ones, or other trauma-inducing situations that have left a lasting impression on you.
But fear not!
There are steps you can take to reduce your fear of rejection to a more manageable state both for instant relief and as a long-term solution.
An immediate step to take is to change your internal voice from one that doubts and bad-mouths your decisions, to one that is more neutral and allows mistakes and rejection. With self-awareness of your inner voice sending you lousy messages, you can simply take a deep breath, allow a gentle and small smile to form, and tell yourself “I’m fine.” Over time and with practice, this works to get rid of the nagging feeling you have in the pit of your stomach and gives you enough mental capacity to “just do it."
What about a long-term solution?Therapy, especially hypnotherapy, has been proven to help provide you with relief and release from the root cause of your fear of rejection, which usually stems from childhood or other painful experiences in your life.
