Rejection is protection is a quote I read for the first time not long ago. Those words stunned me with their simplicity and truth. Never has such a thought occurred to me. The word ‘reject’ previously always had a negative meaning. I never considered before that being cast off or discarded might have a sliver lining. Alan Cohen wrote People think there is one mate, or one house, or one job they must have, and if they don’t get it, they are ruined. That’s ridiculous! No one person, place, or company is the source of your good. Life is the source of your good… The game board is much bigger than you realize. Well said!
I take rejection as someone blowing a bugle in my ear
to wake me up and get going, rather than retreat.
