Aparna had been facing one rejection after another. Her attempts to get a job, a better education, even a successful marriage had all been denied. With each failure, she felt her dreams slowly slipping away, and she felt more and more helpless.

Desperate for an escape, she decided to end her own life. But even death rejected her. She was too scared to do anything drastic, but she felt trapped in her own life.

Depressed and hopeless, Aparna felt like she had nowhere to turn. Until one day, she encountered somebody whose life was worse than hers. The person was struggling with poverty and illness, yet still managed to stay positive and find joy in their life.

At first, Aparna felt even worse knowing that her life was still better than someone elses. But then she started to realize that she wasn’t alone in her struggles. Her own mother had faced many obstacles in her life, but she still managed to find happiness and success.

Inspired by her mother’s resilience, Aparna decided to take on her own struggles with newfound determination. She started to look for opportunities instead of focusing on the rejections. Little by little, she started to make progress and eventually, she was able to find success.

In the end, Aparna realized that her bad luck and rejections had been her best friends all along. They had forced her to look for solutions and to push herself to keep going in the face of adversity. Her struggles had made her into the person she was today, and she was thankful for that.

Yes, this is my real life story. I know I try my best to portray life positively but life is never a bed of roses. I would rather say that even beautiful roses have thorns. But what about the person who only gets messages like :

Unfortunately, we have decided not to proceed with your application. We wish you best luck for your future endeavor.

I have received this message several times after sending n number of applications. Similarly, my books have not been doing as well as I had expected and sent short stories to various magazines which have been conveniently returned with the rejection stamp.

When I read about Abraham Lincoln’s failures in the past and how Thomas Alva Edison managed to remain optimistic in spite of many of his experiments ending up in failure, I thought probably this allowed me to put on my thinking cap so that I could keep working on alternatives to succeed.

“Every rejection is God’s protection,” and I truly believe that. Rejection is not the end of the road, but merely a detour to where you are truly meant to be. Every no brings you closer to a yes, and every failure is a lesson learned.
So, if you are facing the Monday Blues because of rejection, take heart. It may not feel like it now, but this rejection is leading you to something better. Keep pushing yourself and never give up on your dreams. Remember, even the most successful people in the world have faced rejection. The only difference is, they kept going. So will you.

  1. Be positive βœ… and we learn from our failures πŸ‘Ž. So never ever give up. Move on with self confidence towards your goals. And may mahaperiyava be with you. I’m also praying πŸ™ for you.


  2. Every rejection is God’s protection, I strongly believe in it. Our former President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam was rejected by Air Force, because God had reserved him for doing something better. We don’t know what God has planned for us. So rejections here and there should not dampen one’s spirit, as you have rightly concluded. All the best, Aparna ji, in all your endeavours πŸ‘πŸ‘β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈπŸ™


  3. It’s true, Aparna! Everyone goes through rejection, but it’s the people who persevere who ultimately succeed. Also, I’ve noticed that people who get quick success also disappear just as quickly.
