Although I've reviewed books before, this is the first one I really enjoyed reviewing, and found myself expanding in process...its message is consistently positive and uplifting, its advice is timely and timeless, and its prescriptions for personal growth are, best of all, simple and doable. This is kitchen table wisdom at its best." ~John C. Robinson, Ph.D, author of Death of a Hero

The Flip Side of Rejection!
When I was 25 years old, I fell in love. Or so I thought. I was young, impressionable, and ready for love. Jim was 10 years my senior, could sing, play the guitar, and knew just how to capture an innocent beauty with his charms.
After three months or so, and after declaring his undying love for me, Jim disappeared without a word. I had been ghosted. Pain shot through me unrelentingly. I had been rejected with no explanation. There was no closure, nothing to hold onto to help me understand what happened, and why.

At one point or another, you've been rejected. And if you haven't been yet, it's more than likely that you will be. It's a natural occurrence in life. And it hurts. Bad!
