We don't have to accept rejection

A student of Christian Science describes how she overcame feelings of rejection in her marriage and found healing for herself and her husband.

Most of us have experienced rejection at one time or another, and felt the hurt. And the tendency to react negatively to such rejection has been known to manipulate people to act out some of the most serious disturbances society faces today, such as violence and child and spouse abuse.

It is evident that these are not problems that can be legislated or willed away. But they can be and have been solved by individuals who have learned that there is a way and a reason not to accept rejection. They have refused to be used by rejection but instead have used such occasions to rid themselves of whatever in thought was not good, not Godlike. Each of us can find healing and acceptance, whatever the need—and bless mankind as well.
