Yesterday I whined about the fact that I was being rejected after applying a short story workshop. And it hurt more when I found that my friends got accepted. It felt like I wasn't good enough as they are.
However, then one of my friends that was accepted posted on his social media, that this was the first time he could make it after rejected times ago.
Then I think that... those friends might have dealt with rejection times, over and over, more than I. But they kept trying while improving themselves. And their hard work have been paid off now.
People always look at other's success but not at how much failure they did before they got their success. Thus I think I might not be rejected enough because this one failure shocked me. I haven't tried enough yet. I'll keep trying until rejection and failure won't hurt me anymore.
