Exhale the BS

Exhale the BS

That's right...  Just let it all out. I know you don't all also follow me on instagram and this recent post of mine generated a lot of positive feedback -- I think we really do need to band together -- so I wanted to share it on ModaMD too

Recently I’ve been involved in conversations with so many of the strong women in my life who are working through career negotiations/change/restructuring of time (myself included to be transparent) and I keep hearing the same thing: we feel guilty for advocating for ourselves, despite generating more RVUs we are compensated less but nothing changes, we are told ‘this is just the way it is’ and to be grateful for any opportunity. And we feel disloyal for making a career change, even if it is in our best interests. 

It is pretty clear to me that so many of us are having similar experiences and would benefit from support from one another. It’s also crystal clear to me that the only person who will have your back 💯 is YOU. So today, exhale (the BS) deeply. It’s ok to advocate for what you want and need. It’s ok to fight to make your work place better. And if that fight becomes a losing battle, it’s also ok to move on. It’s ok to cultivate a career you love and to choose to follow your own path.

Sending so many of you strength and support and love! You’ve got this
