Much as I'd love to have more time to write, living on the street scares me, too. So I work full time and usually over time.
Yet, I've made time to get rejected. It seems that way lately, at any rate. LOL
When I get rejected, I revise the story until I finally get an acceptance. In the end, no one remembers your failures, just your triumphs. Although rejections can sting, most of us experience them occasionally.
