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.
