What is Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria?

Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria (RSD): what is it and how can we deal with it?

No one enjoys being rejected; it’s upsetting, and can be emotionally painful. But most of us are able to recover from rejection fairly quickly, without having it affect our other relationships or our mental health. We can lean on friends and family, and our stock pile of resilience to get us through. But not everyone is able to bounce back like that, and many experience what is called rejection sensitive dysphoria, which is an intense emotional reaction to any real or perceived rejection. RSD can happen as a result of someone criticizing us, but it can also occur when we fail to meet our own expectations or feel like we have fallen short of our goals. Any shortcoming pointed out by ourselves or someone else feels extremely painful and can cause us to lash out or shut down.
