Double rejection bites doubly hard.


There is no one to bitch and moan to about this situation at this time of day so I’m turning to this trusty blog.

First of all, I am completely aware that I am extremely lucky to have a lot in my life. I have a beautiful daughter who I love to bits and who I am sorta not being an amazing mum to at the moment (she is quietly flipping through a magazine and an H&M advert). I also have an amazing husband who supports me in most things that do not involve getting out the plastic. My family and friends are supportive and I have so many loving ones at that. So, yeah, I’m pretty lucky.

However, I have received the final result of a long awaited university application response and it’s not good news.

What can I say? It hurts and though I mustn’t take it personally, I do. I don’t have an inflated view of myself, but I do have a great understanding of my personal qualities and skill set.

It’s mid afternoon and I’m still in my pyjamas, unshowered and feeling awfully sorry for my privileged self. This could be a blessing in disguise and all that ‘it’s not meant to be’ cliches. I know everything happens for a reason, but I am just feeling upset right now. End of.

I really believe this, but in the immediate moment of rejection, it's not the first thing one wants to hear.

I really believe this, but it’s not the first thing that came to mind when I got the ‘no’. 





I’ll get over it. I always do.
