Thanks for this post! Lately the main lifeline that I've used to climb up out of The Pit Of Despair has been to email just one or two friends/colleagues who will help me put a rejection into perspective. I am pleased how much even a little email of positivity from someone who believes in me is a completely effective antidote to a rough rejection. It gets me back on my feet even faster than I would think it could. I think much of being in a hole (at least when it comes to post-rejection-despair) is the problem of being closed inside oneself.
