life dynamic

I need a paradigm shift with regards to this issue of “friends.” I’ve gotten used to having a circle of certain kinds of people as friends. Now with the small class size of medical school, I no longer have this luxury. I can no longer afford a single “circle” nor can I afford to be too picky with whom I associate with.

I have done a great deal of growing in this past month and a half. Having family in undergrad was wonderful, but it was too comfortable. It prevented me from really understanding myself—especially in this individualistic American society. Now, far from the comfort of any solid family, I am learning many new things about myself. This is very important. I am finally beginning to see just how distinctive and complicated a person I am. Application of this self-knowledge has already helped me a great deal—and if I am vigilant, I will become increasingly able to side-step my weaknesses, harness my gifts, and lead a truly incredible life.
