How People Can Overcome Their Fear of Rejection #3
This is part three of an article that features the confession of a man who overcame his fear of rejection. I hope that it will be helpful to anyone who has ever struggled with this problem:
Whenever I was spending time with my wife it was like a test and I was wondering whether I will pass it. I am sure that many people might feel the same way, even though they might not be ready to admit it. Anyway, once I realized how it is affecting my life, I decided that it has to stop. I thought about it long and hard and I came to a few conclusions. First of all, I knew that we were happy in our marriage, so I thought that it is ridiculous that I worry so much. I thought to myself that if my wife really loves me, then she will accept me as I am. Secondly, I decided to be more honest with my wife whenever I speak to her. Once I made this decision, I made sure to stay relaxed and not to worry too much. I have to admit that I still had some fear, but it was already getting smaller. I kept telling myself that I did not have to worry and that my wife accepts me as I am. Overcoming fear of rejection was definitely a very big milestone in my life and it would not have happened if I did not realize in the first place that I had this problem.
