    what's the meaning of this sentence....?

    Hi all,
    Could anyone tell me what does the last and underlined sentence mean in the following paragraph?

    One of the biggest secrets about how to raise self esteem is learning to see what is hurting you. Many people who have low self esteem have poor friends who insult them and hurt them. Is this the case with you? Do your friends lower your self esteem? If so, get out there and start making new friends. It's a lot easier than it sounds. Most people will be flattered if you sit next to them in public and start chatting. And if you "fail" - that is, they aren't interested - move on to someone else. It happens to the best of us!

    Thanks in advance.
    Kind Regards

    "It" refers here to "failing" or being rejected, or someone not being interested in us. But you shouldn't feel bad about that because that happens even to the best people - the most friendly people can be rejected." So, don't feel bad - it happens (even) to the best of us (the best people).
