Dealing with Rejection

I’ve been dealing with rejection since the first girl I had a crush on.

Warning! feelings not mutual

This is my lock screen right now. It’s there to remind me not to get too caught up in my feelings. So I don’t get disappointed with rejection. But don’t be silly, its not just love.

Getting rejected from colleges.

Getting rejected from internships.

Getting rejected at career fairs.

Getting rejected from job applications.

I try not to set my expectations too high. I lie to myself. I tell myself, “It’s not that important”. But dammit if I’m not feverishly praying with my subconscious that it all works out.
