It’s a fact of life that not every one is nice, not everyone has empathy and not everyone thinks before they speak. Sometimes good kind people even say something they don’t mean or out of anger. When we feel judged, picked on, targeted and just in the crossroads of someone having else a bad day, we get upset and our feelings get hurt. Don’t let these experiences make you think any less of yourself.
I personally found this to be extremely true when applying for jobs. There’s nothing worse than someone telling you exactly WHY they’re deciding not to hire you. It totally kills your view on yourself if you let it. I’ve always worked so hard and have always had great work ethic. It was so astonishing to me when I felt NO ONE wanted to hire me. It’s defeating. At these points in our lives, it’s so important to brush these feelings off, and even if your feelings get hurt, to never think less of yourself.
Don’t let anyone make you feel like you’re not smart, or not good enough for something. Know who you are and be confident in that. We all get our feelings hurt, but you should never let it change your self worth. And for the job market.. perseverance is key. Trust me, you ALWAYS end up where you’re supposed to be.
You can see on the side a few things I did this weekend from my Instagram, @SimplybySimone. But here are some pictures from a different rainy weekend on the North Fork..
I love Long Island. I’m so lucky that I get to spend my weekends here (when I’m off of course). I also love it when it rains, it’s so quite and relaxing. Seeing animals around is also something I love. I feel like I’m in a different world. Trust me, I like the sun WAY more than the rain, but hey, it is what it is, you have to make the best of it!
I hope you have a wonderful Monday and week filled with good news! As always, thanks for reading!
