Rejections are a part of life. I think that every single person gets rejected at least once but accepting it is always the hardest part. Freelancing as a job is always tough but especially when you're brand new, just starting out and possibly have unrealistic expectations.
I remember when I just started and there were some job offerings as a content writer - I was so eager to apply and I was confident that I'd get accepted. Sadly, that wasn't the reality. I got rejected more than once and the worst part for me was that they never gave an explanation.
Some freelancers might be discouraged by the rejection but for me personally, it made me stronger and it made me work harder.
Therefore I am curious fellow freelancers, how do you deal with rejections?
