Too Much

July 29, 2014

Yesterday I was cleaning out my emails and came across a job rejection email from a few years ago that I flagged. This particular message I replied to and asked what kept me from getting the job instead of accepting the generic response that was given. To my surprise, they responded and said “Ms. Butler, for the position you applied for, your qualifications were above what we’re looking for and we felt strongly that you would not stay in the position for the time we need you; in essence you’re overqualified”. It’s not the first time I’ve received an email or phone call telling me that, and it used to bother me. Now I’ve come to take rejection in stride. Sometimes we’re rejected in relationships, on jobs, in ministry and in life period because we’re too much…plain & simple. I could have used an extra hour of sleep, but I know that it’ll be another #WowGodDay. When being rejected, let’s consider the source and have a TOO-MUCH TUESDAY!!!
