    Rejection... (is it always a bad thing?)

    Behind the Mask with Marco returns from hiatus, and the first question is, where has he been? A quick discussion and a little catch up is needed. Today's topic is all about rejection. Are you someone who will see the glass as half full or half empty? When it comes to rejection, does it have to be such a bad word? Does being rejected derail your hopes, keep you hesitant to try again, or are you resilient enough to push forward? We share some stories, provide a few tips, and reveal what's behind the mask when it comes to rejection.
