Rejection. It sucks.
It sucks real bad.
It doesn't matter if it is in your career or in your personal life, getting rejected feels like a sucker punch to the gut.
In the entertainment business it happens a lot, so one might assume that you just get used to it. I think it does get easier but every so often you get a "no" that stings you mighty bad.
I have had my fair share of breakups and rejections and I have decided to share some tips on how I "get over" the "no".
1. CRY. Hard. Let the ugly cry take over and don't judge it. Let your face contort as if you are going through an exorcism. Cry until the dry heaving becomes painful. Mourn the "what could have been".
3. Treat yo self. Get some ice cream. Take a bubble bath. Go for a nice walk. Whatever it is, do something just for you.
4. Tell yourself that you don't care about this little bump. It's not going to get you down! Focus on all the amazing things in your life. Think of all the cool stuff you have to be thankful for. This rejection don't mean sh$$$!!
5. Move on! As they say, fake it TIL you make it. Eventually the hurting and heartbreak will stop and you will be looking on the sunny side again!
..... Until it happens again. Then just repeat steps 1-5. ;)
Remember you are fierce and you will get through it!
