Nobody likes rejection.
But for some it leaves them feeling so essentially flawed, self-critical and self-loathing that they can’t bounce back. They become so sensitive to the perception of rejection (regardless of reality) that it becomes a core issue in their relationship difficulties, with others and themselves.
In therapy, these clients are often guarded or hostile as they try to avoid rejection and failure at any cost. Without working specifically on their rejection sensitivity, treatment for these clients can come to a grinding halt as they wall you out, shut down or lose themselves in an angry spiral.
