I faced a lot of it growing up.
From kids growing up, for being feminine and suspected as gay.
From my dad, for not seeing eye to eye as a teen.
From my time as a performer, for not “making it.”
I became used to rejection, which instilled in me an amazing ability to bounce back and push harder than ever before.
Things haven’t often gone my way in life, but when they do, it’s because I, myself, pushed them over the finish line.
Three things to note here:
1. Setbacks create opportunities.
2. Rejection is a part of life.
3. Your worth is yours alone to make, build, and expand.
