We've all gone through a time when we liked someone and wished to ask them out but didn't because we feared rejection. We've all also faced rejection ranging from a simple 'no' to people making fun of us or simply showing pity.

Although, some people readily perceive and intensely react to rejections. This is what is called 'high rejection sensitivity'. This usually happens to adults of all ages too and it isn't the same as being shy or emotionally sensitive. Here's what you need to learn about rejection sensitivity and how to get some relief from it.
