Johannesburg - Scandal! actress Masasa Mbangeni has had to deal with her fair share of rejection, so who better to give us advice on how to take it all on the chin?

In May, The Juice reported how Masasa had told her followers on Instagram that she had once been denied an audition because they believed all she could do is 'Thembeka' (read more about the incident HERE).

This week Masasa took to the same platform to open up about the pains of rejection.

"A friend asked me, 'how do you actors deal with rejection?' The same way we humans deal with death. We don't stop living because we know one day we will die. Instead we realise that like birth, death is a part of Life. So we live," she wrote.

She says she draws her inspiration from another artist who has had to overcome rejection on his way to the top, Kanye West.

"And I heard 'em say, nothin ever promised tomorrow today. But we'll find a way," she wrote, the lyrics to Kanye's single Heard 'em Say.

Preach, sister...
