Rejection – It Either Makes You or Breaks You

Ever feel like you’re not good enough? This can happen at so many different times in life.

If you don’t win the race on sports day, if you don’t win the competition you entered, if you don’t get the university course you wanted, if you don’t get the job you applied for or even worse when you love someone and they don’t love you back.

Rejection is one of the harshest feelings in my opinion. Because so many build you up with hope that you’re such and such and all it takes is one simple “no” to knock you off your confidence and make you feel like absolute crap.

I wish there was a magic word we could say to make the horrible rejection feeling go away but unfortunately there isn’t…

What I can tell you though is that it doesn’t last forever. Heck sometimes the feeling goes away after a couple of minutes. Sometimes all you need is a few kind words from family, a compliment from a friend or even just say to yourself “I am good enough and I won’t give up.” You don’t need anyone else’s opinion to feel worthy. You don’t need someone else’s love to feel beautiful or good about yourself. All you need is a smile and a positive outlook because no one can control your mind but you. When you believe in the potential in yourself, so will everyone else. Pick yourself up girl, you’re better than that!

One day there will come a time when it’s your turn and people see you were good enough.
