I’m not sure if this is helpful or inspiring to anyone here but I just read it on the facebook page of a friend and thought it was very relatable:

I’ve had a bit of a realisation this morning that life is all about overcoming rejection, battling through failure and pain, and ploughing on regardless of all the negative things that happen, the bad luck, the bad choices and bad timing. Never, never, never, give up, as Churchill said. And I’m not going to – “You’re not supposed to look back, you’re supposed to keep going.” If you keep on going, things will probably get better, you’ll be more likely to achieve what you want to achieve, or at least you’ll have died trying. I’m never going to give up.

Thank you Danny Polaris for sharing these words.
