As human beings and future veterinarians, we live long and stressful days…we have too much to do, to learn, and to accomplish and but we haven’t learned to let things go yet. Letting go is not easy, but we must be able to let go of all the negative feelings that might come to us. Whether you failed a test, lost a patient, or didn’t do what you were supposed to do. Being frustrated or anxious about something that has already passed is not healthy. Your past will not always determine your future, but your present will allow you to make it right. Today, I wanted to remind you of four essential things that might help to let things go:
#1 Take some time to analyze why it happened and how can you do it better next time.
#2 Be willing to accept change. It might be hard to accept reality, but forcing yourself to face the existence of the problem will make you feel better at the end.
#3 Do not allow high expectations to control you. Don’t forget that your expectations are just in your head. Too many high expectations may lead to feelings of disappointment, regret, and anxiety.
#4 Don’t let regret take you over and make you feel less happy. Try talking and learning about your regrets, use those experiences as lessons, because every experience good or bad will help you grow.
In summary, letting go of any high expectations, disappointments, and fear will make you feel better, relieve stress, and give you more time to live the fullest life. So, carry on and don’t let anything or anyone to hold you back!!
