Bold Like Ruth
How do I get over rejection?
Soooo, I asked my crush out and he was very kind when he declined me, but he still turned me down. I knew it was a long shot, and I'm so insanely proud of myself for doing it because it's super unlike me. I felt bold like Ruth. But, ugh, now I have to start all over and I'm so picky and so single and everyone's so awful
How do I go on? I'm ready for my #CozyZioFall. I'm on the apps… but oy. What’s next?
Bold Like Ruth
This is the most chaotic letter Bubbela has ever seen and I’m so here for it. Because honestly, I’m as lonely and horny and frustrated as you are. Just recently I wrote about the dismal state of my romantic affairs for Hadassah Magazine (#plug). Lately, I’ve been convincing myself that Hashem won’t introduce me to my beshert until I finish adulting/reparenting myself. So, there’s kind of an incentive for working on myself, aside from, you know, my health and wellbeing.
Anyway. A hearty huzzah to you for being bold like Ruth!! In fact, we should all aspire to be bold like Ruth. Just like you, Ruth faced loads of rejection. First, her husband dies, which is like, the ultimate rejection. Then, she begs to tag along with her mother-in-law Naomi to Bethlehem, but Naomi is like girl, bye?! Another rejection! So, how did a girl like Ruth go from being a Moabite widower to a Jewess seductress and King David’s great-grandma? By being a bold babe with a foot fetish (if you know, you know) who wouldn’t take no for an answer!
Ruth knew what she wanted and she went out and got it! She’s a hot bitch! Build up your confidence and all rejections won’t feel as heavy as they do now. Does that make sense?
Shabbat shalom xx,
