Rejection is something I find very hard to deal with. It is like a physical blow to my body and my 'flight or fight' response is immediately triggered. But I came across this post from Cindy Sherman, on Instagram that made me think again. (Cindy is famous for her ability to make herself look like anything she wants to portray.)
If someone so acclaimed is not recognised for what she is most famous for all those other rejections that I have experienced and will experience in the future, are really about the person doing the rejecting! (It has taken me a life time to work this one out.) Why am I wiritting about this? Well I'm putting together a display of my work and I can hear the rejection of it in my head. I have never been able to fit the 'norm'. Maybe it is time to embrace it?
One of the pros on Strictly told his partner to "Embrace her weird" because that's what makes her wonderful. We all need to believe in ourselves a bit more!

I just find it difficult. But just because its difficult doesnt mean that isnt good advice.
