    Great analogy. :) Love the idea of rejection as catalyst. I think rejection really can make us stronger & make us dig deep & find the courage to try again (but I still prefer acceptance, lol).

    Thanks for your comment Shari! I agree – I prefer acceptance in general as I’m sure most people do. At the same time though, I really think it depends on who is accepting you and why they are doing it. Some people experience the “acceptance” of others, which really amounts to them being used. Some of the rejection that Melinda faces in the novel amounts to this false type of acceptance. In these instances, rejection is not only a catalyst, but also, quite possibly, better for her.
