Examples of rejection in a Sentence

  1. Mitch Prinstein:

    Our species is uniquely and remarkably attuned to our social position because many years ago we relied on each other for safety, research now reveals that social rejection activates the same regions of the brain that are known to respond to physical pain, and also expresses dormant DNA to prepare our bodies for imminent injury. Unfortunately, this response is no longer necessary, so the expression of these genes leaves us more vulnerable to viral infections and more likely to suffer from inflammation-related illnesses.

  2. Isaac Larian:

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    I often wonder about the most common belief that God would never give you anything more than what you could possibly handle; especially when I look around to realize that life often throws curve balls one after another that most people find difficult to manage, physically and/or emotionally. It's true that many people face numerous difficulties and heart-breaking hardships that include social rejection, racial and sexual discriminations, disturbing poverty, horrifying unemployment, crippling mental illnesses, extreme violence including rape, and most challenging diseases like cancer and so on, just to name a few. My personal understanding is that life can surely shower you with lot more challenges than you can handle, and that's the reality you've got to accept. That being said, I also believe that only God will give you the strength - which is necessary to endure through those challenging situations, and to overcome the adversities most effectively. So you mustn't lose Hope when faced with challenges in life, and should continue to have strong Faith in God for Courage, Endurance, and Strength that would enable you to overcome those difficulties. And I am sure God will look after you, as always, during those challenging phases in your life. Cheers!

  5. Robert Crane:

    I guess his motive might have been a rejection finally of their friendship or whatever you want to call it by my dad, my dad wanted to make some changes. He was getting divorced. He was trying to clean up his act. And maybe Carpenter couldn’t handle that… He got my dad involved in these swing parties back then… I can’t say my dad wouldn’t have done that on his own somehow, but Carpenter knew the avenues to travel and took my dad along on some of these adventures.
