Maybe also try to see the majority of people who applied way before you, who are also still waiting, and try to see this grant as a lucky win, instead of seeing it as you 'losing'. I know it's hard and it's not fair, but I also know someone who applied in January 2016 who is still waiting. It's the luck of the draw, unfortunately.Yep, congrats.
They applied a week after us. So there's still that.
But yeah, congrats..
It's like when you're down to the last two in Masterchef, and you lose, but you still have to look like you're genuinely happy for the winner.
Yeah, that feeling.
