Just to echo what everybody's already said, but I've also lived with the fear of rejection my whole life. I'm only now beginning to understand that my motivation for life was all wrong. I wanted to be liked so much that I didn't even risk being not liked. But the reality is that you can't please everyone. You can only do what you think is right and hope that there are like-minded individuals who appreciate you for what you are. You can either live life forever trapped in your fears and never make a difference in anybody's life, or you can put yourself out there and perhaps save not only yourself, but other souls as well. Try to find out what makes you motivated to live, your raison d'etre and I'm confident that you will surprise yourself at how adept you are at overcoming rejection.
