When were you fired from your job? Was it when you believed you were giving your best? And was it when you needed the job so much for the money and for the security?
When were you told it was over? Was it when it seemed peaceful and comfortable? And probably, it was when you thought the relationship was going to last forever.
You are not alone. We are all living in a world of pleasant and unpleasant surprises. It’s a world where it’s normal to sometimes have great disappointments replace big expectations. But it’s petty to allow negative outcomes stop you from living for a better tomorrow. Rejection is not a sign that you are not good or that you are jinxed. Rejection occurs to make you tougher. work harder and get better.
Nothing, no matter how depressing, should stop you from progressing. If you are fired from one job, place yourself where you could be hired. Where it appears nobody will hire you, hire yourself. Do what you are passionate about. Start where you are.
When one love goes awry, love yourself. Don’t kill yourself, it’s not worth it. A better tomorrow is bringing a true love and you must be alive to enjoy it.
