“I know you’re exhausted and tired of hurting, but you can’t give up yet. You still have more sunlit afternoons to bask in and more friends to meet. You still have more cats to pet and more mountains to climb. You still have a life to live, no matter how stuck you feel right now. You still have a beautiful future coming.”
I cant wait to come home one day to my best friend, my partner, my wife. To walk through our front door after finishing work and to be greeted by our dog. We will have dinner together and catch up on our day and then without words, we will both look at each other and think “we made it”.
The number one rule I wish they taught me in school was the reality of not becoming successful overnight. I think that’s what previous generations keep implying to totally fuck us over. “If you’re a hard worker, you’ll make it!” The reality is sometimes life has other plans. I strongly believe that everyone has a purpose and everyone contributes to the world in their own beautiful way. But sometimes you want to be a rocket scientist and find out you totally suck at physics. Sometimes you’re planning on getting your PhD and end up postponing it for years because you started a family. The first time I applied to medical school two years ago I didn’t make it. I thought I was the biggest failure out there. That’s until I realized that out of 4,000 applicants I was in the top 20% of people who actually got an interview. And because only 100ish people make it in each class, there were about 3,900 other people who felt the same way I did. No one tells you this shit in undergrad. Instead, you wake up on a daily basis looking at facebook and judging yourself based off of everyone else’s success. No one puts their problems online. No one puts “today I went to a coffee shop and reevaluated my life before binging on cookies and Netflix while on the verge of tears.” No. In the words of Dr. House: “everyone lies.” People aren’t going to post their greatest insecurities or fights with their spouse online for the world to see. Chances are, the person you’re jealous of for making it to (whatever place in life) is behind the computer screen wishing they were you. Life is funny that way. I can’t remember one professor who told us most people have to retake the MCAT or most people don’t make it their first year. You don’t just come out of college and have the world handed to you. And I wish most 20-somethings would realize how many others are just like them. If you didn’t make it to your dream college or graduate school or job, you aren’t stupid, and nothing is wrong with you. You’ve been lied to. Please know that your 20s are transitional years just like your teenage years were. You aren’t supposed to have everything together yet. Stop comparing yourself to more “successful” people your age. You’re going to do awesome things. Don’t doubt yourself.
