#perfectlyimperfectdoctor

Quick summary: It is difficult to feel like you are doing anything right because the new standard we are all expected to live up to, is very simply absolute.

 

As women today, we have a lot of expectations to live up to. It is difficult to feel like you are doing anything right because the new standard we are all expected to live up to, is very simply absolute. Now add to that being a woman AND a physician. Whoo! That’s a lot of to live up to.

It feels impossible to be able to do it all!

And that is absolutely normal!

 

Listen to these words —

YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO DO IT ALL! You have officially been let off the hook. I’m here to tell you, all of the most productive and successful people do not do life on their own.

We are not superheroes who can save every patient we see and then get a hot home-made dinner on the table every night.

We are not super humans who can go without things like adequate sleep to function at a high level.

We are all a #perfectlyimperfectdoctor and in this way we are all the same!

 

 

So please, y’all, let’s stop pretending we have it all together!

When we do that, we hurting each other and the generations of future women physicians by imposing on them the expectation of being a super-mom and world-class physician who does it all on their own.

 

I invite you to share ways you are a #perfectlyimperfectdoctor and share this with all the women physicians you love!

➡️ I will probably never make home-made baked goods for my kids school. But they will always know they are loved more than anything.

➡️ I will send thank you cards for my kids birthday a month late (or let’s be honest, they may never make it to the mailbox). But my family and friends will know we appreciate them.

➡️ I will be late to work at least once a week. But I meticulously work through my cases to assure my patients get the treatment they need.

➡️ I will often miss calls from my husband because I am too engrossed in my work I forget the outside world. But I make sure we are constantly reconnecting with our weekly date nights.

 

I am a #perfectlyimperfectdoctor. But we all are.
