Not good enough/ story time

Has someone ever told you you are not good enough? Well i have been a victim too. I have given my best in a lot of things only for the person to tell me i was not good enough. Let me share my story and my journey to overcoming this. I finished my degree last year (2018) and just like everyone else does i looked for an internship.

I dedicated my whole day looking for an internship i used to walk everyday dropping my CV to every company i came across. Job hunting personally is a night mare. Sometimes i could go to a company and beg to see the human resource but all i was told is that i needed an appointment. Times were tough. I did this for two weeks then finally i got my first internship.

I was super excited. I went for the interview and i was to start working the next Monday. Like any other jobs their are advantages and disadvantages. Let me say that the advantage of being an intern in this job was that i was able to gain skills and friends too. The disadvantage is that i was to cater for my fare and lunch. An opportunity came in the department i was working and the manager told me that i was not good enough for that job. This made me cry so much i could not understand why this happened to me.

For some time i hated formal employment and I decided to try out something new and i ventured in to freelancing i look back and that was the best decision i have ever made.
