On Saturday, I led a discussion and journaling activity on the topic of Rejection in Session #2 of the 6-week series, “Textual Healing,” sponsored by Ignite the Voice, Inc.

The majority of the middle and high school-aged participants were able to recall scenarios where they had experienced rejection – mostly in the areas of friendship and from authority figures.

As I listened to the young writers, I kept thinking of all the experiences they will have in the future, and how they have no idea of what their in for. Oh to be young!

I really feel blessed to have the opportunity to help others express themselves, analyze their own thoughts and feelings, and decide what actions to take next.

If you’re a teen in the New Haven, Connecticut area or know a teen that would like to participate, please email info@ignitethevoice.org.
