IT HAPPENS TO US ALL
As writers and human beings, it is only natural that we will suffer disappointments, setbacks and failure. It happens to everyone at some point in their life. But, having said that, I find that even though bad things happen, you have to go on with your life. Don't get me wrong. I believe in grovelling and sulking, but for 1-2 days maximum. Then it is time to grow up and put all those feelings of despair behind you and go on with your life.
When I recently lost my freelancing job, I cried, I sulked and ate all kinds of junk food, but a few days later, I started querying my manuscript again. Because in reality, I only took on freelancing to get more experience as a professional writer.
So no matter what you are going through, you cannot let bad experiences and incidents allow you to derail your life.
