All I Can Be Is Me

When I was a teenager, I wanted to be part of the popular crowd. I wanted to walk down the hallways and everyone knew my name.

Attempts to align myself with them were futile. They rejected me every time. Looking back, I’m grateful for that rejection because I realize¬†why they were so popular.

Tarnished reputation avoided.

Online dating had its fair share of rejection. So many of my “I’m interested” messages were either ignored or responded with “No thanks.” Talk about a blow to the self-esteem.

Experiencing rejection helped me realize that I’m good enough. That’s the boost my self-confidence needed.
