Allow yourself the space you need to heal
“As doctors, we are called to heal. We are called to serve. It’s in us. Our ability to heal and serve others does not have to be limited to the hospital and clinic walls. I want all our brilliant doctor minds to be part of the solution to the growing epidemics. However, many of us are caught in the epidemics ourselves right now.
Living with passion is beautiful. It’s peaceful. It’s contagious. It will allow you to help at a larger scale and live a purpose-driven life. Healing ourselves first will allow us to have the energy and inspiration we need to tackle these epidemics and other challenges that we are facing as a nation.
Life will always have its ups and downs. At times, it will be hard. However, when we care for ourselves and follow our passions, then it becomes less hard and more rewarding. Only by saying #MeFirst can our creative minds blossom to their full potential. Only by saying #MeFirst can we see how much of a gift this life is.”
Liz Aguirre is an internal medicine physician.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Nurture yourself, get rest, and allow yourself the space you need to heal. #MeFirst.”
