Finding your purpose despite of stress

by Mae T.
(Philippines)

Sometimes our job gets too stressing and things may seem like a routine everyday that we tend to forget why we are doing all these things. Pressure and stress push us to the limit up to the point of us forgetting this thing we promised. COMPASSION.

Whenever this happens to me, I usually spend some alone time, listen to some music, mostly inspirational ones, and condition myself. Sometimes I go through my phone and scroll through some pictures of me with smiling patients and happy co workers and then try to reflect. There are a lot of things on the internet that can help you boost your confidence and refuel your passion. I usually do these things right before my shift so I would come in to work in good emotional and mental condition.

Thank you for this inspirational post

I definitely agree that pressure and stress can get in the way of our compassion. We forget that our patients are often going through one of the toughest points in their lives. Do whatever you have to do to unwind and prepare yourself to tackle the next challenge. Our patients deserve our very best.
