Why tiered rejections bring me to tears

My great writing teacher, Judith Hill, encouraged me to get my poetry out into the world and I self published a book, "Northern Compass" in 2015.  I even managed to sell enough copies to cover most of the production costs.  I write short fiction too and am faithful about submitting what I hope is good polished work.  Members of my writing group get very excited about rejection letters that feature personalized comments about good points in the writing.  I know, I know, it is kind and I'm supposed to feel encouraged.  What I feel is frustrated!  Maybe if I framed a few of these letters I could learn to love them?  What do other writers think about tired rejections?
