Rejection needn't necessarily be a negative experience, if instead you can perceive it as one further step along the road to eventual acceptance and success. At least, that's how I chose to see it. (Maybe I should change my name to Pollyanna??)
Oooooooo. I love your attitude, Aiala! Karma point for that! Welcome to QT. You should go introduce yourself and what you write in the welcome thread so we can all greet you.
As for rejections, I agree with you wholeheartedly, but I've never seen a thread on any website yet about rejections that didn't result in agent bashing. Just sayin'...
