Here is what rejection does not mean:
I turn into a resentful, bitter shell of who I used to be.
I sink down into a pit of self-pity.
I give up.
I allow others to define my value.
I am flawed.
Remember, if you so much as entertain any of the things that rejection is not, you miss out on the lesson to be learned, and you miss out on the opportunities that have yet to present themselves.
