Hi Pals!
University is back to normal again, and I must be honest, I’m so excited and a little afraid of the new Covid situation at the same time. But here we go, Notion and RemNote will be activated in a couple of days.

This month will definitely be a challenge for me. I want to maintain my social life, self-improvement, study, side hustle and part-time job. I realized, that it’s easier to manage only one of these things, rather than all at the same time. The problem is, I am also sadder, when I only do one monotone thing. I feel like, I’ve been isolated from the world I live.
I talked to my therapist about it a long time ago. She told me, actually, I need to learn to manage all of these things at once to have a fulfilled life. I felt, this is so unfair, since human can’t be good at everything at once. And I’m that kind of person, who wants to master in every area of my life.
This realization pushed me to accept, that I have to give up on the notion of being a master in one thing for a period of time. I accepted that I want a fulfilled life, where I’ll probably be enough or good enough in many things, rather than be excellent in one thing. This change forced me to learn to let go, things I could do better, but didn’t because I needed to manage other things in life, so my life still have enough support system and foundation to begin with.
Do you also try to juggle things in life and find a balance? How do you do it and do you feel content with how it’s going for now?

I wish you a superb week!

This week I enjoy
  1. Podcast - Jordan Peterson: Put Yourself Together. Mr. Peterson explained here why it’s important for us to learn how to be tough and realized, that there are so many people, who is malevolent and can ruin your life. He also explained the danger of naivety and why we should stand up for ourselves. I find it so intriguing. Growing up, it used to be very hard for me to accept, how evil human can be. But this is the reality of the world we live in. It’s better to accept it and be careful, rather than painting our world with only beautiful imaginary.
  2. YouTube - Jordan Peterson: Every young woman needs to see this! In this video, Mr. Peterson explained, why most women in their 30s balled out from their high demands career life. This video gives me another perspective about how I want my life to be in the future. Specially for independent power women in their early 20s, this is something you should probably consider listening, before heading up to 30s.
  3. Article - KevinMD: Why “happy” doctors commit suicide. Reading this article made me realized, in what kind of working environment I want to end up. The statistic is very informative, but studying medicine in Germany, with another work environment, rules, and culture to consider, there will be slight differences in result. But still, I guess, the result will probably look similar. My purpose in life is still to have a content and fulfilled life.

The hardest things in life are:
1. always being honest with yourself
2. Taking care of yourself like a parent
3. Taking actions, even if you're not feeling it, just to get life less miserable: Sport, Socializing, Working on things you don't like
