Have you ever found yourself discouraged by countless rejections from jobs, schools, the opposite sex or other opportunities? This can be tough! Especially if you are receiving one or two per week. This compilation of rejection letters put together by MentalFloss are notes sent to famous people telling them that they really just aren’t good enough.

The one sent to Andy Warhol from the MOMA made me feel better about my art career and the one sent to Tim Burton, a high school student at the time, from Walt Disney Productions was more considered and polite than most, but still a rejection. In the end, these letters make me feel better knowing that modern-day cultural icons received the same letters that I do. Bring em on!
