You're an artist. You (I mean your ideas) will get rejected. But on Valentine's Day?
When I get one of 'those' letters (the ones that go, "Thank you for your application, blah, blah, but..."), which I got today, I like to gather up all my girlfriends and head to Rejection Central. That seedy, shady place where everyone knows your name, the smoke still lingers in the seats (long after smoking laws have changed) and the beer tastes like....beer.
Just stepping into a place like this, and being greeted by a few familiar and loving faces, takes the edge off. I might even break a smile.
It gets me out of my head, stops me from asking WHY, and reminds me that all is well, and that my time will come. How about you - what's your coping strategy for rejection?
