Rejection is Better than Acceptance

Disappointment is hard.

Over the past three weeks, I have experienced a lot of disappointment.
For starters, I made it through three rounds of interviews for an internship at a HUGE corporation.
I felt so confident in my interviews and I really felt like I nailed it.
I didn’t get it.
I was really bummed.

The week after that I applied for a big position on campus.
Again, I felt really confident in my application and my interview.
I didn’t get it.
I cried all day because I was so excited for the possibility but was rejected.

I applied for a leadership position in my sorority.
Guess what?
I didn’t get it.

The pressures of Work Forest are real.
There is a saying, “since your good wasn’t good enough since 1834.”
Wake is a very competitive environment and it is hard to be surrounded by successful people all the time.
It makes disappointment even harder.

It’s been a rough few weeks of disappointment.
It adds up after a while, and really hurts.

I am very positive person, but it is hard to be positive all the time, if I keep getting rejected.

But as my dad always says, “everything happens for a reason.”
I really believe that.

I have learned a lot about myself the past couple of weeks because of my rejections.
And they are only making me stronger.
I am going to keep trying and keep working!
