How about we skip to the part where you’re useful?

After being shut down so many times, you just stop trying. 

You start feeling like a waste of space. Like you want to hammer a hole in the floor and fall right through it. And the inner monologue is:

Wow, if this is what it feels like to give my best, why would I continue? Why am I even here? 

It’s a really shitty feeling, struggling to believe that you have something to add. And there are only so many rejections a person can withstand until they take to the streets and start screaming. 

But apparently, this feeling is part of the human experience. At one point or another, we all labor in vain. We all grow dissatisfied with the exact use that the world makes of our ambitions and talents. 

And no matter how deeply we believe that we’re a welcome presence who’s creating value, sometimes we can’t help but feel about as useful as a cheese sandwich to a drowning ferret.


How about we skip to the part where you’re useful?* * * *
