To all those of my friends and strangers who are getting rejected for jobs,
relationships, loans, and more, just remember that the judgment is coming from a
specific person, not a whole company, not a whole community, not the world. It is one
person making a judgment. You are no less worthy or valuable because one person didn’t
like your interview skills or your drawing style or your way of laughing.
There are over 6 billion people in the world, and millions of companies. Keep looking
for the person, company, community that sees you as you are at your best. Find that and
you will be nourished. It isn’t easy but the alternative is to live a diminished life
where you think you are less than someone or something else. You don’t want that.
