it hurts when you feel as if someone has rejected you, whether it's in a personal relationship or regarding something else, such as a job. any time you put yourself "out there" in anyway, you risk rejection. it's something that just happens in life + you have no control over it. what you can control, however, is the reaction to your rejection, or any fear of rejection that keeps you from trying new things.
rose quartz - rejection stings if we take it to heart. we have no control over whether somebody wants us, likes us, chooses us, but that doesn't keep it from hurting when rejection happens. to heal the pain from rejection, you need to return to a place of self-love, + rose quartz is effective for this.
hematite - ultimately, overcoming a fear of rejection centres on overcoming fear. fear is an emotion that starts in the root chakra + relates to safety + security.
yellow tigers eye - rejection hits us right in the solar plexus, affecting our self-image + self-worth. strengthening this chakra can help you overcome pain from past rejection + serve to immunize you against pain from rejection in the future, because if you have strong sense of self-worth, you're less likely to suffer ill effects when you are rejected.
