Yes! We made it to the end of the year! Through all the tears, the excitement, stupid love, dumb heartbreaks, and of course lovely rejections. Just like the year before I learned a few things and accepting rejection was my main lesson this year.
Just in case you don’t know the definition of Rejection let me help you out, it is the dismissing or refusing of a proposal, idea, etc.
My first rejection came as early as January. It came hard, like really hard. It prevented me from finishing my dream career. I must admit it broke my spirit a little, but I finally got over it after weeks of beating myself up. I was able to accept what I couldn’t change at that moment and decided to continue on with my life. Because it’s never too late to get your education, right?
Then it hit again, this time right in the gut. I wasn’t ready. I thought I had found my person. I spent all my free time and even my busiest days with this person and when I tried to make it official, I was of course again REJECTED! I was so damn mad, so heartbroken because I just knew that the relationship would’ve been perfect from the connection. This time I learned that you can’t force shit. If it’s meant to be, it will definitely happen… with ease.
There were so many other rejections that happened this year, but you know what? It honestly made me wiser, stronger mentally, and it taught me not to be so hard on myself. If a job or school rejects you or you don’t meet the standards, think of what you can do to get that position at the job or that seat in the classroom next time.
With the relationship situation… good luck because I still haven’t found the cheat code for that one. I’m obviously still dumb when it comes to that part of life. Maybe 2023 will have the answers to that.
