Discussion on: How I Handle the Fear of Rejection

This is an amazing take on rejection.

When I first started looking for developer jobs, every single rejection hurt. Eventually, I started to feel comfortable with receiving rejections. Now, they don't bother me (unless I get really excited and hopeful). I always tell myself now that when one door closes another opens.

Thank you for writing this article, Jacob!

I feel the same way, and it took a lot of discomfort to get to the place I'm at now.

But I still get discouraged and definitely still fear rejection, I just know to keep it in perspective!

Glad you enjoyed the article!
