The title for this blog is courtesy my father, a writer and hermit. From the time I was old enough to understand, he has been giving me this piece of advice: “You’ve got to learn to love rejection.”
It doesn’t make sense. But it does.
Everyone has to stand up to something sometime. Everyone has to be unpopular, say the wrong thing, offend people.
It’s part of having character.
So we might as well learn to be a little proud of it sometimes.
