Check out this great post from the Novelty Revisions Blog with 12 Tips for Writers Struggling to Rebound After Rejection
1. Make it about the work you submitted, not yourself. Your work and your worth are two separate things.
2. Don’t treat rejection as a failure. View it as a chance to learn and grow. (I know that sounds like a fluff response, but never underestimate the power of asking: “What do I need to learn from this experience?”)
3. If your rejection came in the form of an email or phone call, try not to keep rereading or replaying it over and over. There might come a point where you can look it over to learn from it (if it includes helpful feedback), but not right now. Not yet.
4. Work on a project for no reason other than it brings you joy. Focus, for now, on what makes you happy.
