I got an exciting email this morning that totally made my day. The email said that one of the manuscripts I sent to a publisher was being considered and that I needed to set up a time to call them. I made the appointment for this afternoon and was so excited and nervous. I had no idea what to expect.
Then, right at the time I needed to make the call, I got an email saying that the appointment had been canceled and that my book was no longer being considered.
I feel very upset and angry right now. I know it just wasn’t part of God’s plans but to be so close and have that taken away from you really hurts. The only way I really know how to respond to these kind of feelings is by cutting. However, I know that is the wrong response.
Why does life have to be so hard and cruel?
