No regrets

We have all been rejected more than once in our life and there's a huge chance it will happen all over again because that's how life works. Sucks, right? But being rejected isn't a sign to give up. It doesn't mean you don't deserve the things you want because you're not good (or smart) enough. Think of it as life's weird way of teaching you a lesson, which you can use to your advantage in the future. Instead of letting it consume you, think of it this way instead:  

  1. See rejection as an evidence that you tried.

Having regrets and what-ifs are much worse than being rejected; the feeling when you had a chance to try, but you chose not to because of your fear of rejection. Always remind yourself that rejection means trying, it means taking the risk. The result may not always be what you want, but at least you won't be upset because you had let go of an opportunity.

5 Stages of Rejection
Sep 7, 2013

  1. Deal with your emotions.

Accept that you got rejected and that you feel hurt, embarrassed, or disappointed. Acknowledge your emotions and deal with it. The more you deny what you're really feeling, the more you will feel defeated. Don't ever beat yourself up because rejection is a part of life, and remember that this is only temporary.

  1. Don't let it define you.

Your mistakes don't define who you are and the same goes with rejection. What defines you is how you react to it. Not getting into your dream school or org doesn't mean you're a failure. That's not how life works. Don't base your worth on someone's opinion of you even if they're in a higher position or the smartest in your class. It doesn't make everything they say true.

  1. Learn from it.

Take the rejection as something to prepare you for the next one because there sure will be more than just one. Learn from every rejection you've experienced and survived from and keep moving forward. Keep doing the things you know you do best because you have a purpose in this world. And you have a lifetime to figure out what it is.

PRIMO.

First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.

The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.

There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
