I am very lucky to have progressed as much as I have in a short time, probably due to chugging down so much material and putting into action, but I have an issue I can't seem to resolve, and that's rejection. I don't deal with it well. Sometimes I get kind of depressed about it for hours, especially if it's a girl I need to be around in the future for something. I know it's AFC for sure. Do any of you guys have advice on dealing with it? I believe I am more successful than not, but once in awhile, I text a girl and she doesn't text back (maybe it's not total rejection, but it's a slight), and it bothers me.
I don't want to become a cold, emotionless, unfeeling jerk, but I also don't want it to eat me up like it does. Usually I deal with it by doing well with some other girl, and that makes me feel good again, but I need to get to the point where I can deal with it effectively, quickly, and with confidence. Any advice? Where's the proper balance between being emotionally well-adjusted, and not caring?
