    I had a long session with a member yesterday on the topic of self-rejection. her current contract is coming to an end and she wants to do more and aim higher. However every job ad she sees that fits with what she wants, she finds fault with herself and loses courage to apply. Her reasons are many. She'll pick apart the job criteria and find reasons why she doesn't fit the job. At the heart of it all is her lack of confidence in her abilities and her fear of failure. Through our discussion she got insight into her reasons for self-rejection and is going to work hard to move beyond it. And she's vowed not to self-reject anymore. Even if she doesn't fit all the job criteria, she's going to apply anyway. It's better to let the other party do the screening than for her to screen herself out of the opportunity before she's even applied.
