222: Remembering Who We Are with Dr. Jessica Wei
Have you ever felt as if your worth is solely equated by your achievements? That you’re only as good as the work you do and the people you help? You’re not the only one. Most physicians feel that way, but that feeling is not the truth. Jessie Wei joins me to chat about what it means to remember who you are, not what you’ve done.
Jessie is a former OB-Gyn who has spent her career helping women to bring life into this world. Her focus and dedication made her the number one person to call in life threatening emergencies, but what it was doing to her mental health was terrible.
After battling severe depression and anxiety and realizing that medications were simply making her symptoms worse, she started to research what it means to be healthy. She is now registered as a Functional Medicine doctor and is helping others find the root cause of their health issues.
Listen as she shares her story and why changing her mindset of worth from achievement to simply being here has changed her life. You are not worthy because of any external action, you are worthy because you are here.

“Jessie Wei is worthy just because Jessie Wei is Jessie Wei, not because she is useful, not because she is a physician, not because she is a mother, but because she is a human being like everyone else.” Dr. Jessica Wei
