Rejecting Rejection…

…Where a double negative equals a positive result.

Who are we?

Rejecting rejection is at the essence of being human. We are all born with the instinct to belong. Because, we all DO belong. No matter our difference we are all human beings on OUR PLANET, and we belong here. None deserving of rejection. With our hearts, souls, and minds each of us was born to create, connect, love and to be accepted. We are the human family of this planet and we are all related! The human spectrum. A hugely diverse family each member with their own piece of work to define and accomplish. All of us alive because of the sacred, random DNA we carry given to us through our ancestors. The phenomenal electrical energy enabling us to breathe this life in, is truly miraculous. We are all the same yet we are all different. Not one of us desire rejection or isolation for being very simply the only thing we can be, who we are.


Why do we question that?


Somewhere along the line certain types of people decided they were “greater than” other types of people in our FAMILY.  Exerting egotistical dominance over those they perceived as inferior. Messages telling people to adhere to hidden codes for what is “preferred” seeping into our psyches. Messaging that causes some family members to become pushed aside and made to feel rejected. Unaccepted in their own family. Sadly, causing those members to question their family worth and ultimately their own human value.  Questioning their own sacred right of existence on our planet. How barbaric? How and why do we allow this? Distressing and harming our own family members repeatedly in this way? It is reprehensible treatment in all forms. The thing most unappealing about humanity. The elevation of some people and the degradation of others and a society that fosters and celebrates that.




In this week after the “latest” mass shooting there has again been extreme heartbreak, extreme politicizing and the always present extreme assumptions, pontifications and exploitations. Mental health and gun control agendas run amok. Everyone wanting to understand the mind of a killer, assign a diagnosis and a reason for the depravity he sunk to. Who was he? Who’s fault is this?  Why, oh why…and what if, on top of more why oh whys and what ifs? Truly quite interesting being that in this latest tragedy the killer gave us all of the answers in full in a very depraved social media kind of way. His reasoning? Rejection.


He’s not like us.


People seem to rush in to “other” and distance the rejected family member even further. The “we are not like him” finger pointing begins again. Theories on diagnosis and reasons are assigned for how someone in our human family could do this? Why? Because as a society we do not reject rejection. He is like us, all killers are like us. We are the human family.


What can we do?


We can love all family members and accept them for their own sacred DNA. We can support people in their differences and when help is needed we provide that. Whatever that looks like. Without rejection, ridicule or disdain. When we as people can accept that we are here together as ONE. Not to see who is the best, who is the fairest or who has become the most wealthy. We are all creations here to create and work together. We are all needed here on our planet. Each of us born with a purpose, purposely born. Existing  to…


create and reflect love.


So, let’s just DO THAT!

    Great piece!
    This is a beautiful reframe of the challenges we face in our world. I agree that looking through an inclusive lens is the only way to truly see what life is all about. When viewed through loving eyes, life becomes a luminous playground, full of opportunities to celebrate and enjoy being alive.
