Acknowledge Rejection

Ostracism usually involves feelings of abandonment and rejection. When rejection is severe, it can feel like a knife through the heart. Some describe ostracism as "social death," a metaphor for how badly a person can feel on the inside. Rejection and abandonment cause severe emotional and physiological reactions within the human body and make some people feel like they are going crazy. When someone you deeply care about rejects you, you're likely to experience a loss that involves a grieving process. Grieving in this way is a common, ordinary experience. It is similar to what we go through when a loved one dies. Be patient with yourself and permit yourself to grieve for as long as needed.
