We all hate that word. It makes us feel so bad about ourselves. Worse, it makes us question the very intention of why we started out. We all hate rejection.

But there it is. In our face. Most of the time. From people we love to things we love to even the smallest, silliest of daily stuff, rejection hits us hard.

The trick is to not take it seriously. It’s just one of life’s ways of checking if what we are after is what we really desire. If we give up, then there it is. Maybe, we were never serious about it. But if we hold on and give it our all, there is a very good chance that we will make it.

Earlier, when I used to get rejected, I used to completely break down. Thankfully, it’s a little different now. When I got my last rejection mail for my novel last Saturday, I was fine. What came to my mind was, “Okay, if not them, then the next.”

Rejection is just a step. Let it pass when it arrives. It just means we are one step closer to our real destiny.

  1. Just keep trying. It’s years since I became a published writer but it doesn’t much vary. You still get rejections and you’re going the right way about handling them. The golden rule for any writer is ‘Keep writing’.

    1. Thank you so much, Ma’am for all of the honest advice. πŸ™‚

      At times, it does get pretty hopeless but then still, one pushes ahead because one believes in oneself and most importantly, one’s creation. One day, the pieces will fall into place. πŸ™‚
