They Rejected Me (Dialogue)

At 9:00 AM, the weather was cold and dry. I met my friend K in a cafe. I gave her a warm welcome with a big hug. Well, I hadn't seen her for a while.

We waited in line to order. "I need the change!" K said.

I noticed that K looked different. Her enthusiasm for life seemed to have decreased. Also, her behavior had changed. I know that she loves to discover new things. She is an adventurous person. That's why she decided to work abroad.

"Tell me. What's wrong with you?" I asked.

"Do you know what? The word rejection is weird!" she replied with a contemptuous smile on her face. "Rejection is like the act of removing or erasing someone or something. It's a clean process. But the question is, why do I feel pain when I get rejected?" While she was talking, I saw that she was in pain. Her facial expression was a mix of anger, grief, and fear, and it was obvious she couldn't cope with the situation.

"I know what you are feeling now, but what can you do? Be easy on yourself and let go," I told her.

I had no idea about her story; she was talking in general.

"Easy to say and hard to do," she said with a mocking smile. Then she continued, "They rejected me and dropped me from the project I love. My confidence was shaken, and I was confused. It's hard to cope with it. I put a lot of effort into that project. They suspended me without reason. I don't know what to do."

"Dear K. Rejection is rejection. Deal with the negative feelings first."

"How?" she wondered.

"Ask for help, do things you love, and find people who will support you in your journey. These difficulties will open your mind and heart. Protect your knight, I mean your mind, from damage. Take care of yourself very well."

"You are crazy! I will. So what about you? Tell me your story." K said.

The End.
