This rejection challenge was probably one of my most awkward ones. I decided that I would see if a stranger would do a random handshake with me. It felt a bit more uncomfortable, but I was hoping that someone would humor me and say yes. I was walking downtown and this guy gave me a peace sign and asked me how I was doing. I thought to myself: "perfect, he's already talking to me!" So, I asked him if he'd do a handshake with me and he gave me a big ole' no!
I was slightly surprised because he was so open and friendly! But lesson learned that you can't assume people will say yes just because they are overly friendly and kind. It made me realize that you never know if or when someone will say yes or no. You just have to go for!
