Working with Rejection
By: Ariana Galvez
Along with the joy that an acceptance letter from college brings, comes the rejection, but it isn’t the end of the world. It may seem like there is nothing worse than getting rejected, but it is important to remain positive. A few simple steps I like to follow in the face of bad news are:
- Relax: It’s okay to feel down about the situation, it is heart breaking but, you must move forward. Remember all the other options that are opened to you.
- Look into other options: There is always another way. Being successful isn’t a one way path. Look into other colleges or programs that can help you advance in your future.
- Try new things: You never know what secret talents you can have under your wing. So why not explore them?
