The point is that there are many options in life and we should not be blind to the many possibilities of things that we could do. If we do not succeed in one field or endeavour, it is not the end of the world.
I still struggle with my feelings of rejection at having underperformed at work but I seem to have a fighting spirit and will not give up.
I hope that I will one day rebuild and resume the life I have always wanted – a life that is challenging and enriching and where I can be intellectually fulfilled.”
