Rejection is God’s Protection
Rejection is God’s Protection
When someone breaks your heart in a relationship, understand that it is God’s way of protecting you from a bigger tragedy in this relationship. Rejection can be a blessing in disguise.
To explain this, let me tell you a story. A real life experience.
A very nice guy I know, a successful professional, fell in love with a pretty, bright girl. They had a great time together. He felt they had a lot in common. They travelled together to lands far away, took trips to scenic places, stayed in beautiful hotels, visited great restaurants, and enjoyed their time together in many sweet ways. He spent lavishly on her.
Then some irritating events happened. There was friction and a few arguments and misunderstandings. But they patched things up and continued to be together. The nice guy thought that he knew his companion very well. He believed that no matter what he did, she will always love him, and will not be interested in anyone else.
At one time, she ask him to marry her, mainly because she wanted to show him off at her sister’s wedding, but he was not ready, he had a few things to take care of. He said he needed a little more time. She was very upset, but did not give him any indication of how bitter she felt.
After a couple of months, the guy felt that it was the right time to ask her to marry him. So he called her and asked her if he could meet her and talk to her. She did not even give a clue to him as to how explosive her temper was. She actually said nothing to indicate that she was upset, but said very calmly, “Okay, why don’t you come over.” So he bought some flowers and met her and asked her to marry him.
Here came Life’s Big Blow for the nice guy. He thought that she was going to be thrilled by his request to marry him, because she loved him so much. Instead, she burst out saying mean and rotten things. She could have let him down gently or a little kindly, even if she felt she had some reason to be mad at him, but she poured out her mental venom all over him, and told him very hurtful things. And adding insult to injury, she then announced that she was going to marry someone else. Obviously, she must have been seeing someone else too, who knows for how long! Finally, she declared, “I never really liked you or loved you. In fact, you and I are not compatible.” Saying this she left the place. This woman not only hurt a very nice person, but she gave a bad name to all the nice and understanding girls in the world.
The nice guy, as you can understand, was devastated. First of all, his ego received a big blow. But the thing that nearly destroyed him was the fact, that after all these years together, she left him to marry another guy just like that. He never thought for a moment that she did not love him. True there were little problems, but he was always under the impression that she adored him and truly loved him, and that no matter what happens, she will stick with him. Because that was the idea she gave him. He never thought that she will break up with him in such a cruel manner.
But she did. So he was miserable, and sank into deep depression. He didn’t eat or sleep. He was very unhappy.
Now I ask you, was this girl worth it, for him to throw his life away? What if the nice guy had married her, had children too, and then this woman showed her true colors? How much more misery and chaos would that have caused? Wasn’t it better that they broke up when they did? That is why I say, Rejection is God’s protection. A break-up can be a blessing in disguise. It is God’s way of protecting a person from a bigger tragedy in that relationship.
So please remember, Rejection is God’s protection. A break-up may prove to be a blessing in disguise. So don’t lament and throw your life away for a girl or a man. Learn from the experience and move on. Don’t stagnate. When things don’t work out in a relationship, understand that it is God’s way of protecting you from a bigger tragedy in that relationship. Things will work out. They always do.
