Unless you express your feelings, you cannot expect others to understand your fears.

Remember it's not the end of the universe and let your fears to consume you won’t make it any better. Whatever the situation you are in right now it will also pass away. Just make yourself stronger to survive through it.

It's all in your head, you can create a situation that actually never existed and then make yourself fall into the fear of rejection. Don’t think about what will happen, just relax and wait for the possible outcomes. The other person is probably not even considering it, so you need to let go off your fear for the chances of rejection. Fear always make your life difficult and fills your mind with unwanted worrisome thoughts. By assuming unwanted things you are making life harder for yourself. Your own opinion could be clouding your mind emotionally and not letting you to live a peaceful life. To enjoy a happy and peaceful life you need to stop worrying about the things which are not in your control.

Everything needs time to settle down, and if you rushed into things then you may end up with these fears of rejection. If you are not sure about something just express it instead of fearing of the end result. Take your time to learn about things and people and allow some space to build confidence in each other. It will help you to build a relationship where you can trust that the other person would not betray you.

Often times we make compromises to avoid the feeling of rejection. Our life has ups and downs, but that doesn’t mean we can't make things work. Accept everything for how they are and build your relationships on the basis of trust. Always have the willingness to work through your issues. Remember that you are capable of creating trustworthy relationships, also you have the strength and power to make positive things happen for you in your life. So, let go off the fear of rejection and embrace a long-lasting relationship with yourself. Never ever compromise on the person you are.
