As they say, sh*t happens — you miss the bus, get dumped, don’t get the promotion (or all of the above). Of course these situations are all bad, to varying degrees. But it’s up to you to put a positive spin, or at least try to find some good in the situation. -“No matter how bad something seems, there is a lesson to be learned, a skill to be improved on.” See if you can find what that is, no matter what happens to you.
