Sylvia Plath on rejection

Sylvia Plath rejection slip quote

Sylvia Plath, Crown Princess of Clinical Depression, had the absolute best way with words, and was the first voice I read that talked about the deep, deep sadness I have inside. For a long time I thought of great ideas but never pursued them out of fear of failing and feeling even worse about myself.

Then I opened a streetwear store, and while it had been a long dream of mine to own, in reality I hated it. Not the store itself, but the fact that people would come in and talk my ear off for hours getting free counseling and then never buy a thing. For the first time in my life, I was happily willing to fail, just get me out of that store! I am proud of my failure now, at least I had the gumption to start a company from scratch, and huge lessons were learned out of it. I’m ten times stronger now because I tried, and I can’t wait to see what else fails in the future!
