I spent last week working hard on a project
Giving it my all, hoped it would work,
Little did I know, it was going to get rejected
‘I’ was rejected
Am I not worth anything?
Is this harsh rejection all I deserve?
Feelings of worthlessness and shame crept in
Spent all nights thinking and over thinking
Drew a conclusion that I am imperfect and decided never to share my ideas again…
Only if I had realised –
My worth is not my project
I am not my idea
My value is much more than what could be defined by someone’s opinions….
I wish someone had told me
“Innovation is killed by shame”
