Do you try to live up to other peoples’ ideas of who you should be?
Sometimes Mom accidentally calls me Bonnie – that was the last red-head-Siberian she had. Oops!
If there’s someone in your life who expects you to behave, believe and achieve they way they want you to that’s probably causing you a lot of stress, whether you realize it or not. So before you jump through a hoop someone else thinks you should jump through, ask yourself if YOU want to jump through that hoop.
You have your own inner knowing of who you were born to be. You know what feels good to you and what doesn’t. You are you – the one and only you on the planet. You do you, and let that other person see and appreciate you for who you are.
I’m Kacey and I love veterinarians!
What are you expecting? And if you answered “a baby” congratulations, and that’s not really what I meant.
When you walk through the hospital doors in the morning, what are you expecting?
If you feel excited because you know it’ll be a day of interesting challenges faced with a great team, then you’re in the sweet spot.
If you feel stress because you know it’ll be a day of interesting challenges and you wonder if you’ll all be up to those challenges, you’re where a lot of veterinarians are.
And if you feel dread because you know the day will be full of things or people that make you feel bad, then it’s time to reach out for help. I know I know…it’s hard to ask for help.
You’re human and you’re great at so many things but nobody expects you to be great at everything. Was there a buddy in vet school you could reach out to? A current colleague or friend? The people at Not One More Vet?
You’re not alone...
