Welcome to the 101st Episode of The Coming Out Lounge. It’s our first bi-weekly, yes, twice a week episode. In an effort to meet the needs of our Coming Out Lounge family, we are going to start delivering episodes twice a week so that you not only get great coming out stories, inspiring interviews, and unique perspectives for coming out of your life closets, you are also now going to get advice, how-to’s, riffs, and funny commentary about coming out of the closets of our lives that we all face as humans. These shorter versions are going to be called Truthtini’s – little Martini sized classes full of ideas to help you come out to be authentically who you are.
Today’s episode you get me – Rick Clemons, your host – all to yourself as we discuss REJECTION. Now don’t worry, I’m not rejecting you. NO, NO, NO! I’m hoping that during this episode I give you some powerful tips for coming out and accepting that REJECTION is a part of coming out of your closets. Some people are going to love you and others aren’t. But the bottom line is rejection is only as bad as you allow it to be for you. You get to choose how rejection after coming out, or rejection in any form affects you and your life.
So here’s what’s in store for you in this episode…
- 10 TIps for handling rejection and staying the committed course for being yourself
- Real life story of how rejection has impacted my life – the good and the bad
- Learn how to take rejection and make it work for you
