Omar, I share your struggle with rejection. It is complex. For instance, I work hard not to be rejected. It feels bad to me. But, founders who are building companies may excel if they build their comfort with rejection. I'm a little jealous of those who can do this. In fact, rejection tolerance is a muscle I dream of strengthening. What if I could get to a place of celebrating rejection? ...I'm not there yet, but your post inspired me to think about this as one of my personal growth goals. I'm reminded of this TED talk: https://www.ted.com/talks/jia_jiang_what_i_learned_from_100_days_of_rejection?language=en
