Rejection is never a really good feeling, it always leaves you in self-doubt and lowered self-esteem. Failure is hurtful and sometimes the setback is heavy. However enthusiastic and positive a person is, rejection takes a hit. While that is true, there are a few people who believe that rejections are in some way steps taken towards success.
