Failure

I didn't get the job.

So, it is true. I just can't seem to succeed at anything.

Oh, that's rubbish

Leah said...

I'm so sorry you didn't get the job. You are NOT a failure! Treat yourself to something nice this weekend -- and ask your DH to tell you all the reasons why he loves you. That always makes me feel better (even if my DH is blowing smoke up my ass).

I'm so sorry. How disappointing.

Natalie said...

Shit. That's all I can think. Shit.

Tina said...

Oh, I am sorry about the job, but you can and do succeed at things. Take this blog for instance. Your writing is wonderful!

Be kind to yourself. Hugs to you.

My Reality said...

I am sorry.

Delenn said...

That sucks. I am sorry. I agree with Leah--do something nice this weekend.

I'm sorry. I know you could have really used a break from the powers that be . . . damn.

But YOU are not a failure. Promise me you won't repeat that to yourself.

Sweetie, first and foremost, I'm sorry that you didn't get the job.

BUT you are not a failure. You are not. Even if it feels that way tonight--and you should spend some time allowing yourself to lick wounds and feel sad--it is not a true statement overall.

A true failure couldn't touch so many people with her words.

Rachel,

I vigorously disagree with you. In no way shape or form are you even the hint of a failure. I've met failures.

Failures sit around waiting for life to happen to them.

Failures don't get a new job and go for a promotion a few months later.

Failures don't keep trying when life and fate gives them shit.

Failures don't participate in life.

Failures blame the world for their problems.

Do you see yourself in the above, because I don’t?

I say WELL DONE for putting yourself out there for a promotion and possible rejection. I think we should celebrate your bravery for doing that. It says more about you as person and your strength, intelligence and tenacity for trying. I don't believe there any shame that and you are certainly no failure.

That sucks you didn't get the job, but it's not true that you can't succeed at anything! I know you are feeling very down right now, but try to be kind to yourself.

Mountain Girl said...

I am really sorry and know how disappointing that is to you. I also ditto almamay's comments!

Nicole said...

I'm so sorry.

K77 said...

I'm sorry. It's their loss.

Samantha said...

I'm sorry Rachel. You may have had a failure, but you are not a failure!

ultimatejourney said...

I couldn't have said it better than Almamay so I'll just say I'm sorry.

Hopeful Mother said...

Almamay has it totally right. YOu are anything but a failure.

But I am sorry that you didn't get the job. They don't know what they're missing.

Lori said...

So many people here see so much good stuff and success in you.

I am one of them.

sara said...

I'm sorry - I hope things turn around soon and I'll keep you in my thoughts.

Sara said...

I'm so sorry. Bad call on their part.

I believe that something is better out there for you. I'm hoping it's right around the corner. {{hugs}}
