It’s been really annoying the past couple of days with pretty much everyone telling me that I’m incapable of becoming a nurse because I passed out at the sight of blood. This all coming from my friends and family. Honestly, if anything, this experience has made me stronger and motivated me to work harder to overcome this. Everyone always tells me that I’m a capable individual with a lot of potential, yet one little slip up and all of a sudden, I’m incapable of making my dream a reality. Yes, I’m aware that I have a fear of blood and needles, but I am confident in myself and I refuse to let a few silly fears stop me from getting to where I want to be. It’d be so much more helpful if people were more encouraging instead of trying to bring me down. Errrr.
