i’ve always wanted to help people. help the people who normal people won’t help. help the people who are most misunderstood. but the thing i’ve been forgetting all my fucking life is to help ME and help the people who are normal, every day people. to help my friends and family. to make people’s days a LITTLE bit brighter by just smiling and being POSITIVE.
these are the things i HAVE to do while i’m alive. these are the things i HAVE to do and CAN do and HAVE THE RIGHT AND QUALIFICATIONS AND EDUCATION to do for others while i’m pre-med and while i’m not yet a doctor.
yeah, i don’t have a masters degree in nutrition, so i can’t become a nutritionist. yeah, i don’t have a nursing degree, so i can’t become a nurse. yeah, i don’t have a medical degree, so i can’t become a doctor. yeah, i don’t have all these degrees and can’t become an EMT, medical assistant, clinical scientist, etc etc.
i’ve been searching up so many jobs and there are SO many qualifications that are required of people to apply for so-and-so job.
the one and only qualification that we ALL have, though is we are fucking human. i am constantly forgetting this - i probably have forgotten this most of my life. i’ve been concentrating on what degrees and qualifications and experiences i DON’T have and what i have to do in order to get there that i have completely forgotten that i have love and kindness in my heart that no one can take away from me. we all have it and we all can do something with it. the simplest smile can make someone’s day a lot better - when i look back on it, random people’s smiles have made my day better.
i’m so frustrated with myself for not realizing this earlier.
