You’ve heard it: “You’re not ready to play with the big boys – but I’ll let you make me a sandwich.” “I can get you this contract, but you gotta give me to booty first.” (Yep, someone actually said this to me) “I know you think you’re smart, but your plan is gonna blow up in your face.” “You’ve got a great idea, but you’re going to need me to make…

    Rejected and Married-by-Guest Blogger-in-Residence-Dr. Tina Bedell

    The popular girls at school didn’t want to eat with you in the cafeteria because you weren’t part of the “in” crowd. REJECTION! You didn’t make the cheerleading team because you weren’t skinny enough. REJECTION! You get the letter that reads, “Thank you for applying to our university, but after careful consideration we regret to inform you….” (Yea right). REJECTION!
