*repost* Proud to report that I managed to stay away from the Xanax/Valium last night, without developing a "complex" about it even if I did. (There's a reason, I guess, they're prescribed "as needed"; sometimes they're useful). Even prouder that I have been managing to navigate through a horrendously busy night (admissions left and right) with an assertive and CALM mindset; I typically hate admissions. Still do. Prouder still that I managed to be mindful enough "in the moment" to stop myself from being roped into extra work by a fellow second-year, and assertive enough to propose a fair (emphasis on "fair") alternative that worked out better for not just ME, but the workings of the team in general. Score one for mindful, assertive Phil, looking out for the child within, not letting himself be bullied.
