To use the word "sorry", to apologize, is something that has become too easy lately. "I'm only human" is an often heard phrase.
I'm a soon to be GP's assistant. Next to that, I do reveal my secret project now that it's safe to do so: I will be a specialized nurse, specialized in emergency care in hospitals.
When I make a mistake, things won't be as easy as saying: "I am sorry, I'm only human. I'm just a student or teacher or a professional in some other line of work and making mistakes is only human."
When I make a mistake, people suffer. Patients' and families' lives are destroyed for a very long time. Patients die.
So when I have to live up to such a high standard, I can only hope the people around me to do the same.
The reality is that people don't, taking things for granted. For it's so frigging easy to say: sorry, I'm only human.
But it's so darn hard to erase a medical mistake, leading to someone's death. In that case, my humanity won't be an excuse for the mistakes made.
My reaction to the rubbish of "I'm only human"... My reaction to my stepmother, who used these words in court today, to apologize for her errors made when she destroyed my education and a good future, when she tried to drive me off the road, leaving me dangling with the nose of the car above the edge of the viaduct, for leaving me with such a fear for driving around with a black or red car behind me, I have to go back to the psychologist again...
In three weeks court will sentence her to something, or nothing, I leave that up to the judges.
On to better news, for I have had to vent atm...
Going to the cinema this evening, before that dinner in a fancy restaurant and, the best thing yet, I get to practice etiquette to school dropouts in society. Internship is fine for now and perhaps in April this year, I'm done with both studies XD
Wish me luck!
