The #ShareYourRejections challenge has been trending on Twitter recently, and for good reason. Everyone is sharing their experiences with constructive, and not so constructive, criticism in an attempt to inspire others to never give up. The wide array of stories ranges from teens getting rejected from crushes, people with disabilities proving their doubters wrong and even established authors who have faced years of rejection prior to major success are participating in the conversation.

Here are some of the best rejection tweets so far.
