How to use rejection in a sentence?

  1. Anthony Liccione:

    That rejection you went through, don't have it bring you down. It's only a splash in an ocean of opportunities.

  2. Sanjay Kulkarni:

    The longer people are on dialysis before they have a transplant, the worse their survival, so if you have a living donor, instead of waiting five years for a compatible donor, if you can get a transplant from an incompatible donor in a couple of months, this paper suggests that that is beneficial, despite the fact that they have a higher rate of rejection.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    I often wonder about the most common belief that God would never give you anything more than what you could possibly handle; especially when I look around to realize that life often throws curve balls one after another that most people find difficult to manage, physically and/or emotionally. It's true that many people face numerous difficulties and heart-breaking hardships that include social rejection, racial and sexual discriminations, disturbing poverty, horrifying unemployment, crippling mental illnesses, extreme violence including rape, and most challenging diseases like cancer and so on, just to name a few. My personal understanding is that life can surely shower you with lot more challenges than you can handle, and that's the reality you've got to accept. That being said, I also believe that only God will give you the strength - which is necessary to endure through those challenging situations, and to overcome the adversities most effectively. So you mustn't lose Hope when faced with challenges in life, and should continue to have strong Faith in God for Courage, Endurance, and Strength that would enable you to overcome those difficulties. And I am sure God will look after you, as always, during those challenging phases in your life. Cheers!

  4. Fernanda Vizeu:

    The rejection has created a confused situation, members want pay for all the days they were on strike, not half, and want a broader discussion of budget cuts and asset sales.

  5. Harlem Desir:

    We believe that the racist remarks, anti-Semitic remarks, spread through the Internet today or in other media do not fall in the category of expressing an opinion, rather there should be law that allows for us to suppress a rejection of others and a call for violence and a call for death.
