I had an OB physician call me today who is on the Credentialing committee at a hospital I’ll be doing work at to discuss my lawsuit. It was NOT a problem and I didn’t even flinch and I wasn’t triggered.
It’s par for the course.
Just business now and not a problem.
I have so much peace.
I have so much confidence about who I am.
However, In the past this wasn’t so. There were times I would just ball 😭 and not be able to speak. My anxiety about it and my lack of self confidence was very apparent.
It was a journey to get where I am today and it took effort.
It took being brave and reaching out to get help.
It took learning a new way to think.
It took being self compassionate with myself.
It took me being okay with getting sued.
This is why I have been helping others find peace of mind too.
And why I am launching the Healthcare Hero Healing Circle soon.
A private, safe, and confidential space only for physicians to help them get peace of mind, joy and self confidence.
