Matter how good we think we are or how beautiful or handsome we tend to believe we are. We all have faced rejection and if not you will experience it.

The huge difference is how we handle it or face it. My generation has been shut away from experiencing it while we were young were always cover by the new parenting style but once we face it. We over react and develop a feeling of unworthy and unwanted and this lead to suicidal thoughts.

Let me tell you of a story of two gentle men. Peter and Andrew. These guy’s were best buds, you couldn’t separate one from the other and all of them were from the same neighborhood and also schooled together all through until campus

So after campus they got jobs in the same company and got married to beautiful wives,life seemed perfect at first but once the pandemic took over it also took away there jobs . There contract were both stop until further notice.

Peter felt like it was his end and he lost faith in himself a

but Andrew was different he kept is his hope alive. He consoled his friend and informed him to start to look for jobs around and it wasn’t the end. The world was quite for a while and no company was hiring .After some few months , some opening started poping up.

They started sending emails asking for any position available but to their sad news were rejected excuses being they were either over qualified or to old for the position. Peter started getting tired on sending emails and being rejected over and over again decide to stop sending emails and quit . Andrew didn’t give up he continued to send more emails and when he saw there no response. He decided to gear himself up and mask up and his sanitizer on his pocket and go out there.

Andrew geared himself up with his resume and copies of the certificate if he could be ask for it in an interview room. He started knocking some doors and ask for job using the old saying is there help wanted.

He was rejected several times and when he back home his friend kept coming to his house telling him to quit telling and advicing him it was their wives turn to feed the families but the next morning Andrew was in his suite and a folder next to him ready to job hunt .

He did it for a whole month and no one gave interest. His wife turn against him claiming he might bring covid-19 in their home and he should stop and start some online jobs .

Bills were piling up but he didn’t stop knocking until one day he met one of his old friends all the the way from kindergarten. He explained his pain and how things were hard and he needed anything so he could be dad to his kids and a husband to his wife he was offered a job immediately.

When he arrived home his friend come and as always greeted him and asked him and asked how was the day. Andrew for once was hyped and he explained the whole story and how he got the job since he was still his friend he was ready to take him to meet up with his friend as see how he could connect him but peters pride didn’t allow him.

We will all face rejection a time but that’s shouldn’t stop you from going for what you want.
