A real life fairy tale

This is the kind of fairy tales we should tell little girls:

Once upon a time, there was a girl who thought her life was over because she was rejected by every possible thing she had ever wanted. When she was about to surrender to the cruelness of life, an inner voice stopped her. “Just try once more. Just once.”

She took the advice and hoped things could be different. She was disappointed over and over again, but that nagging voice never went away, reminding her she was born to be so much more. She wiped her tears and kept trying until rejections could no longer break her, until one day she finally landed her first success.

Fast forward to present day, this woman has a slightly different, if not better, version of everything that she has truly ever wanted–freedom to be the person she aspires to be, and she has never been more content.
