I will now enter the 2nd semester of 3rd year Med. I had difficulty passing some subjects on the first semester but thank God I made it. It gets harder and harder. Things become more complicated and difficult to understand. But I feel satisfaction everytime I correlate different ideas.
It pains me to think that some of my close friends got delayed. Failing in some subjects is common in Medicine but this is one of the "most common" things in medlife that is very hard to accept. Every failure presents another opportunity to improve but there's a regret in terms of the times elapsed that are sacrificed in the process.
Reaching for our dreams doesn't ensure us a smooth journey. There will always be obstacles and the most irritating obstacle is our tendency to give up. We knew beforehand the difficulties when we embark this journey but knowing is different from experiencing. Pain and frustrations will flood our emotions as we become helpless and lose our confidence. We need emotional analgesics to relieve us from this pain. And as corny as it may sound, the most effective analgesic there is is the love and support we receive from others. It makes us feel and remember that there are more things in life. Our dreams are our individual agenda but once we incorporate other people in this dream we will never feel alone. I will become a Doctor for the people I love. I don't care about how long it will take me, as long as I feel loved I will go on. If I fall I will stand, If I fail I will never surrender.
This was taken after my graduation in nursery. I was asked by my parents what will I do after. I replied that I will go and search for a job. But I realized later that I wanted to be a Doctor
