I was going through a required orientation at a hospital that I had already been employed at in the past. I was pretty well convinced that the time was paid, but worthless. I sat at a back table, and hoped to get through the time. As usual, those are the experiences that surprise me. A video was played that Cleveland Clinic had made.
It showed many people walking through the clinic, and in script, briefly described their stories. Well, I was in tears before it was done. For one thing, I go to the clinic very frequently. I felt like one of those people. Many things going on in my mind, that nobody could really see from the outside. However, I have to remind myself that I am not the ONLY one.
So, I am issuing a challenge to you as well as myself. When you walk past someone, instead of thinking something like “boy she really thinks she is something”, think “what is she possibly going through? “ Lets work on this together. I’m going to try, and I will post what my experience is this week. Will you share yours? I hope so!! We can all learn!!
