Some of my friends brag about how little sleep they get, as if depriving oneself of the ability to function fully is something to be proud of. Perhaps I could survive without my meds, but would I have been able to graduate college? I don't just want to survive, I want to thrive.
9/11, a massive wakeup call for our whole country, was also a strong reminder for me as a physician. It reminded me to not assume anything about my patients, and that a person's life story is as important as their symptoms in determining what will happen with their illness.
Everyone serves to benefit from Care Getting. To accept a life without it is as good as inviting one's own soul to starve. We have all seen those people possessing little impetus or inclination to smile. I suspect many of them aren't getting, accepting, or expecting the care they deserve.
We're familiar with the self-centered, self-inflating tendencies of narcissists but have you ever stopped to wonder why they do what they do? Sometimes we assume that it's due to "low self-esteem" but then it also seems that they feel superior to others -- which presents a contradiction.

Challenge yourself to take at least one deep, concentrated breath each day. As you inhale, think of one action you will take to become emotionally stronger; as you exhale, think of one action you will take to become physically stronger.
