Jumping to Conclusionsby Nathalie Callender & Marlee Walchuk on 01/01/12
This is one of the hardest things not to do. Many of us by nature, are sensitive and yes...sometimes we're even a little insecure so when someone doesn't get back to us right away or hasn't picked us for something we feel we should have been offered, we can assume all sorts of really nasty things, about them, about ourselves, most of which are very far from the truth. It's important to always take a deep breath and remember that EVERYONE is busy and your email can be sitting at number 75 of 150 that came in today. Sometimes that big gig or opportunity simply wasn't meant for us right now. Perhaps we needed to be freed up to accept a better offer that's on its way. Whether or not it's easy for us look at things this way, isn't it a whole lot better than stewing, stressing or sticking pins into a doll that looks just like that guy who said he was going to get you to open up for the Black Eyed Peas?
