Knowledge

When I look at the things I have been through so far, I realise that most of my experience, those things I consider as valuable knowledge, are mostly the result of painful events.

I am able to walk now, because many times I fell down as I tried to take my first steps when I was a little child, I got up again and kept trying to imitate those people around me who were able to walk without a problem.

Of course I have faced rejection many times and it made me feel like dying and almost ended with many projects I once had. But the reason I was feeling a little worried was that now I really don’t care very much about rejection itself. Continue reading
