"See if you can catch yourself complaining in either speech or thought, about a situation you find yourself in, what other people do or say, your surroundings, your life situation, even the weather. To complain is always nonacceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness."
  - Eckhart Tolle, German born best-selling author.

Being in med school makes me want to complain A LOT! The truth is i am ready to be done with this part of my life. Yes, it doesn't necessarily get better or easier anytime soon, but at least i will not be a med student anymore. As one of my oversabi friends said yesterday, this is the life i chose. I wasn't complaining to her, she asked me what i was doing and i said studying, then she said that. In my mind, i said, thank you.

I really like this quote especially the part that says "To complain is always nonacceptance of what is". What is right now is that i am in med school and i have to finish.Since i can't/don't want to leave the situation, i have to accept it. I just need to hang in there, keep my head straight, surround myself with supportive people and don't lose sight of the goal.

This thing is trying to break my spirit but i am a strong African woman :)

P.S I need to gist you guys about how i had to give a sex talk to a 17 yr old guy and asked his mom to leave the room. She almost cut my head off, fear catch me. Med school can be an awkward circus sometimes. Good thing i don't take those kinds of things personally. 

I did not tell her what i was going to talk to her son about. I just said i have to questions i would like to ask him alone, naim the woman put book down say "say what now?" LOL Very hostile response. Omo, fear catch me. I said it's standard practice, i have to talk to him alone.

She left but not without slamming the door on her way out. I say Dr. T which kind wahala you put me today. The other doctors know this family so they were surprised my attending made me do that. Oh wells.


  1. Hahahaha, she dey fear say her son go spoil, rotten.

  2. lol.... I use to complain I cant shout..... just took step 3...yippie..pray for me.....

  3. Lmao... I gave the sex talk once... Beginning-Meet-End
    I pretty sure I turned 'em off from the whole idea lol

  4. *sigh* I do complain.

    But I'm much better at accepting or leaving the situation. I still complain though and I refuse to call it madness :p

  5. i guess i can relate with this ... i need to stop it tho

  6. cool blog, nice stories we all can relate to, about realities that stare us in the face on daily basis. I think i will come here again.

  7. i complain a lot...its something i want to stop. actually take that back. i worry too much for my own damn health. funny about the woman with the son. so did she leave the room?

  8. lmao.... i can imagine that sex talk scenario. sometimes i complain to just let off steam.... i know there's nothing i can do abt it, but complaining sometimes is just.....therapeutic.... of course, not in high dosage.

  9. Lol, she was prolly worried that what does this 'lil girl' know about sex that she wants to teach my son. Poor woman, she can't bear to watch her baby grow up.

    I wish you all the best dear! Complaining doesn't change a situation, it only makes you feel worse about it. God is your strength!

  10. Wow , i love that quote...i am a complainer struggling to do better.


Hey guys, welcome to my blog. Sit back, relax, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!
