This one I am writing for all of you who have suffered setbacks to your plans and goals. I am also writing it for myself, as the setbacks lately have been piling up. My body pain and my fruitless job search (and multiple rejections) have been challenges to face. When facing any challenge, the view is much better with your chin up, where you can see everything clearly: the threats to your mental/physical well-being, possibilities not yet considered, the opportunities that lay hidden, and the support you take for granted.
Even when it is tough, lowering your head signals internal defeat.
No one can defeat you but you.
