I'm just a fat gal with a blog and an opinion. Well, lots of opinions.



How do you handle rejection? How do you handle repeated rejection…for like 7 months?!

I just received two rejection letters from jobs that I was certain would come through. I’m beside myself at the moment and need to find the energy and motivation to clean my apartment tonight and paint my nails because I have another promising interview tomorrow. I just can’t shake this sadness. I was on cloud 9 all weekend and into this morning, my happy vibes fueled the massive amount of errands I ran today. Now I’m just shattered. Every time someone tells me they want to hire me, I try so hard not to get my hopes up. But these two jobs? UGh! I was not expecting to be rejected outright. I was expecting second round interviews on both counts. You could say that any wind that would typically be in my sails has truly been sucked out by this.

I can’t help but wonder how much and how many of these rejections have to do with my fat body and less so with my abilities and skills, especially since I always nail phone interviews. I guess I’m lucky that no one has actually told me to my face this time around that my fat is the reason I won’t be hired (it’s happened in the past a few times and perfectly legal). I just don’t know why they feel the need to lie to my face instead. I know, I know, their loss, yadda yadda yadda. I can’t.

So, how do you do it? How do you bounce back, dust yourself off and keep trying? How do I find the energy to clean right now, let alone prepare a meal for myself when I feel so low?
