I recently had a conversation with a good friend about dating. Among other things, we talked about how rejection affects men and women on a personal level. He then confessed that because of recent events in his dating life he felt inadequate; he felt like he wasn’t good enough.

I have spoken with many friends about this subject both male and female and the bottom line is always the same, rejection hurts. From time to time, everyone struggles under this heavy weight. In such trials, a person might ask, “What’s wrong with me? Why am I not good enough?” To those who carry such burdens, remember a few things.
