I recently asked my Instagram audience what topics they wanted me to touch on and by far the most responses came in around the concept of rejection.

Fear of rejection is real. I’m not going to deny it. I often try and reframe it, letting people know that being turned down by an agent or publisher isn’t reflective of their worth, their work, or even how good the idea is. Agents and publishers take on material THEY are confident in selling.

It’s not personal.

But, at the end of the day, that doesn’t really mean much when you feel the sting of that response.

This week on Bound+Determined we have my go-to for all things in the feels, Kristen Boice.

Kristen is a licensed marriage and family therapist, as well as a trained EMDR clinician. Kristen’s passionate about inspiring us to get on the path of becoming more self-aware, and acknowledging who we most want to be.

She specializes in improving self-worth, helping people create deeper emotional connections and healthier relationships, and heal trauma. Most importantly, she instills hope by helping people create possibilities and develop a sense of inner peace.


Join us for this important conversation where we tackle:

  • What rejection is really rooted in
  • The new science behind rejection
  • Tools and Tips for moving through rejection
  • And so much more!
