I hate how rejection and failure can traumatize you and worse, make you lose confidence and trust in yourself. It’s frustrating how they can handicap you, how they can prevent you from experiencing success just because you’re too afraid to step out of your comfort zone, not mind what others would say and just do it, as Nike would suggest.

Yesterday, I got my groove back. Someone made me realize that there are still people out there who believe in me and my capabilities, despite the presence of those who make me feel like I’m just second choice.

Sometime very soon, someone else will hopefully validate that I am very good at what I do – and that I am preciousss.
