Was I bitter? Absolutely. Hurt? You bet your sweet ass I was hurt. Who doesn’t feel a part of their heart break at rejection.

It drives me, feeds me, and makes one hell of a story. ~ Jennifer Salaiz
Part of the problem with the word ‘disabilities’ is that it immediately suggests an inability to see or hear or walk or do other things that many of us take for granted. But what of people who can’t feel? Or talk about their feelings? Or manage their feelings in constructive ways? What of people who aren’t able to form close and strong relationships? And people who cannot find fulfillment in their lives, or those who have lost hope, who live in disappointment and bitterness and find in life no joy, no love? These, it seems to me, are the real disabilities. ~ Fred Rogers
There is only one way of victory over the bitterness and rage that comes naturally to us–To will what God wills brings peace. ~ Amy Wilson-Carmichael
