Why we beat ourselves up in Vet Med
Have you ever wondered why we beat ourselves up so much in Vet Med?
In Vet Med, why are we so quick to judge ourselves when patients don’t get well or clients behave badly?
A pesky voice in our minds tells us it’s our fault… we must have failed…
Somewhere along the way we decided that happy clients and patients that get well are evidence of success, value and worth as a veterinarian.
It’s a lie.
It’s actually worse than a lie because it depends on two things we have zero control over:
1. what other people do
2. how individual patients respond to treatment
Much of our anxiety, worry and dread as veterinary professionals are rooted in the “what-if world” of these two uncontrollable things… and left unchecked, our minds spin in frenzy trying to manage all the variables that might possibly swing the outcome in our favor.
Spoiler: It doesn’t work.
It actually creates a whole lot of other issues in our professional and personal lives…
In a Facebook Live Event, I talked about this in detail and walked through an example of how it often plays out.

Getting a handle on the anxiety is the first step in taking back control of our lives and learning how to create a life we want to live… but most of us don’t know where to start.
