Lately, I’ve been getting lots of “thanks for interviewing, but we’ve decided to pick another candidate…..” emails. It’s hard not to take rejection personally, but in reality, life if FULL of rejection…..from relationships, jobs, promotions…..the list goes on and on. You just have to get used to it and move on. How do you deal with rejection? I tend to mope around for a little bit and then try and make myself feel better by saying “they don’t know what they’re missing…it’s not me it’s THEM” and then I half ass believe what I’m saying to myself and then move on to the next job, relationship, etc…. whatever it maybe. Rejection makes you stronger right? It never feels like it in the moment.
