The 3 Day Rule
Inspired by David Duong
Before, when I received a tough rejection from a girl I like or a job I want, I used to suppress my feelings. I wouldn’t give myself time to process my emotions and instead I distracted myself through studying or TV shows.
Now, when I get turned down I’ll give myself three days to feel it out and reflect. During those three days I’ll cry, I’ll mope, I’ll wallow in my heartbreak.
But after the third day I get back on my feet and get back to it.
