Being a child was a lot easier. The only rejections I got were from the people denying me another chance at batting when I got out on a duck. Sometimes, if they were a few years older than me, they would agree, they would give me another chance to bat. But still, I believe you get what I mean.
Growing up has only increased the number of rejection gradually. Earlier you got rejections from teachers to understand your claim for marks. Then it came to the point where you were rejected some great opportunity. Then it came to rejection from people about your hobby. You loved to do something but no one liked it, in fact, they found it irritating.
Then you start getting rejected by colleges and then companies, in your love life and so many more place you cannot count.
I was 5 or 6 when I tossed my ball off on someone’s terrace and I couldn’t get it back. I called a tall guy and he tried to get me my ball back but even he couldn’t. After a few attempts, he gave up too.
He patted my head and said, life is hard, life is not fair. I was just a kid when he said this, now, I understand what he meant when he said that. Yes, life is hard, life is not fair but that shouldn’t stop you right?
If I tried a little harder, I would have got my ball back, I know it. You are going to face a lot of hardships, but that shouldn’t stop you from being who you want to be.
