"Accept rejection. Learn from it whenever you can. But don’t waste time trying to avoid it."
This recent article from the fantastic site, Doctor NerdLove, goes into a topic that can resonate for a lot of people for different reasons. Learning to let go can be one of the most challenging tasks, no matter what it is you're holding on to. With this struggle however, comes great rewards. The feeling of freedom from negative thoughts, suffering, and generally unnecessary brain baggage can allow for success in all parts of your life. Accepting challenge as an opportunity, rejection as a teachable moment, and focusing on what you can control (yourself) rather than holding on to everything else outside hoping it will change will make you into a more confident, productive, and happy person. I guarantee it!
