I don't think you're used to being told "no"

Updated: May 11, 2020

"I'm not. Honestly, I'm used to getting my way quite a bit."


Maybe that's why the job search had been so difficult.


Or dating.


Or anything.


I'm not used to rejection.


I enjoy negotiating. I enjoy the game of winning people over.


Now I can say that I've been rejected by a hundred companies and by a few guys.


And thank, God.


No seriously.


Thank you, God, for protecting me.


For guiding me.


Thank you for teaching me not to take things personally. To keep trying. To keep learning.


Thank you for helping me understand what rejection feels like and that not everything I want is meant for me.


Thank you.
