Creative arts and rejection go hand in hand, the latter is almost part of the process. It’s not just within the creative arts that we hanker to be accepted, to suceed, to realise our dreams. We all need each other to thrive, it’s the nature of humanity, human beings need one another. A young child experiencing unconditional love will live, will thrive, will prosper, will flourish, grow and bloom. Love is essential to early development but other than early childhood, rejection is hardly physically life-threatning. But it hurts, rejection in any form hurts, because our feelings are deeply intimate.

When we are judged unfairly through untruths, the more upset we become and there are a lot of untruths out there…everyday we make more tears, none of us need more pain… So, for crying out loud, how do we make rejection work for us? How do we stop feeling bad? You must remember that one, or thousands of rejections, personal and/or professional, does not mean that you failed, it means you tried. Keep doing that, try again.

As I have mentioned before, art and health are in-explicity linked – there are obvious health benefits and we have to keep those beneifts in the forefront of our mindsets. You will never forget your first rejection, sometimes that rejection will stay with you, deeply. Rejection can teach you a lot about yourself and those around you. Keep in mind, the dignity of difference, keep in mind, we all feel pain, we all feel fear and most of all, we all feel love. We all have the capacity to make love, let’s focus on that.

This weeks Flickr mobile photograhy and art showcase is bursting with artists’ creations, artists that continue to create, continue to face their fears of rejection; knowing that not only will their work be judged but also the person behind the work.
