I may seem to make this such a big deal, but I graduated last June. That was four months ago! I think this alone is a testament that sometimes, I’m too stubborn for my own good. I spent two months for a single application and didn’t even think it through when I dropped the rest of them. Unfortunately, I was not successful but as Steve Maraboli would put it “I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better.” I have never really failed at anything ‘big’, but I guess this experience toughened me up because let’s face it, it’s not going to be the biggest disappointing news that will come my way.
Honestly, my self-esteem slowly deteriorated as days went by. It seemed that my peers are already starting their careers and I have been left behind. I kept wondering if there really is something wrong with me and maybe I’m just not good enough to get what I wanted.
It is safe to say that I had time to re-evaluate my choices and find out what I truly want out of life. After which, all I needed was to brush off the negativity and stand tall on my feet again. In life, you just got to roll with the punches and believe you can do whatever it is you set out to do. 🙂
