We’ve all felt rejected and down in the dumps. It sucks. I mean it really sucks. But there’s hope! Maybe you’re dating and can’t seem to find the right partner or you’re in a relationship and feel rejected every time your partner turns you down for sex. Feelings of rejection are human and normal! We’re here to help you navigate these dark and stormy feelings and come out the other side to the bright sunshine that awaits! Listen to today’s episode and learn.

In this episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Understanding that you are not alone in your rejection. It happens to everyone!
  • The negative effects of social media on your feelings of rejection and overall happiness. Quick hint: Want to immediately feel better? Stop following (stalking) your ex’s on social!

  • And much more!
