Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria

  • Self-esteem that is entirely dependent on what others think, and rises and falls accordingly
  • Isolating yourself in a preemptive strike not to be rejected
  • High sensitivity about the possibility of rejection
  • Overly high standards for yourself
  • Feeling easily triggered toward guilt or shame
  • Aggressive or rageful behavior toward those who have been perceived to have slighted you
  • Frequently feeling an uncomfortable physical reaction due to “not fitting in” or being misunderstood
  • Frequent and intense ruminating after an interaction about how you did or said something wrong
