Falling off an Imaginary Mountain

I feel as if for the past three weeks, I have been climbing up this mountain. The higher I go, the more I value my self worth. Yesterday I got pretty high until I looked down and there was nothing below me so I fell all the way down to the same place I was at three weeks ago. This is how I feel the day after being rejected from YC. I thought we had a shot, I told myself we were going to get in, and I just kept climbing. It turns out, we didn’t even have a chance.
