Even though it hurts, it’s good because it forces you to question how badly you want whatever rejected you.
It’s also good because the very fact that you were rejected means you were trying to do something, and that implies you were striving for growth.
Learning to deal with and embrace rejection is an essential part of learning how to become an effective human. If you can’t navigate it, you’re not going to get very far – your fear of failure will begin to limit your dreams.
Rejection helps us define who we are. Get past the pain and ask yourself “How bad do I want this?”
The answer will tell you what your next step should be.
