I was so happy that this Tesco delivery man wanted his photo taken with me. It’s been 7 long days without, this included two men who declined my invitation and an Amazon delivery man who kindly stood in, lessening my pain. These rejections are good practise for dealing with future rejections. Since the cuts rejections have quadrupled, especially in the arts.
Rejection hurts as much as when we experience physical pain, this is now proven through MRI studies. Interestingly, research also suggests that being rejected by a father leaves longer lasting emotional damage than if rejected by a mother. If we are to understand Freud’s concept of transference, this means that if the Tesco delivery men were women, my blog may be emotionally less fraught.
