At the end of the day, after all the chaos, the endless frustrations, the tug-of-war, unrealistic expectations, intense emotional and physical strain, the hazing, frenzy of admissions and discharges, fear during codes, and administrative obstacles; If you’ve made just one small difference in a patient’s life - whether it’s to quietly listen, provide comfort, recognise a subtle symptom, pray with family members, or simply hold a patient’s hand while they take their last breath - that is to attain the honor and value of being a nurse. Simplicity matters.
― Nurse A

― Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
90% of my problems would be solved if i stopped over-thinking and being anxious about everything & calmed the fuck down
