Dealing With Rejection

I'm having to deal with rejection once again and I'm having a hard time not taking it personally. You try to psych yourself and tell yourself your good enough and that your work is good then you do finally submit to just get an email/letter saying thank you for your submission but we decided to go another way or with someone else.

I'm not throwing a pity party. I'm not even looking for sympathy. I'm just letting anyone else out there that went through the same thing that they are not the only one.

I just went for something that shall remain unnamed but I didn't get it. This is what I created...

I love your work, sweetie, so that's all that matters. ;) I know where you're coming from, though, and as long as you stamp for YOU, the right thing will come along one day.
