A ray, illuminating
Your zest, you may shine
I have a friend. A very special friend. She says I am her best friend. How sweet! I feel touched when she praises wholeheartedly everything I cook. She is just 12 (And a half) years old! And she is very thoughtful.
"Everyone should get a chance. It encourages." She said out of a sudden. I paused for a moment, surprised at her wisdom. How insightful!
Then she said how one of her classmates who was not a very good student, low in confidence improved when she became the monitor of the class.
"Yes, I agree!" I said finally.
It is true that rejection should be taken in a good spirit. In fact, I believe that "Rejection is a tool that sculpts your skill." It makes you concentrate on your mistakes and then you may learn to fix them.
But, yes, there should be a limitation. Sometimes, too many rejections dishearten. You start to doubt your ability. And a long series of rejections makes you feel that your efforts are useless. You lose your zest.
So, yes, everyone should get a chance. Everyone deserves an opportunity. It, as my friend said, encourages. Encourages to perform well. To prove her/himself. And once you get a chance, make sure you don't waste it. Be the best version of you. You cannot be sure about getting another chance.
