Several different threads of thought were moving around my brain this morning.
1) A new idea called Rejection Therapy. A person actively seeks out rejection in order to get over the fear of it. This reminded me somewhat of something I read back in the 1970s: “Feel the fear, but do it anyway.” But it’s better than reading a sentence, because it entails actual experience. And I don’t care how much you might know from reading, it’s only actual experience that matters, because life is unpredictable and surprising and there’s no single book that can ever encompass all of its variables.
