One of the best lessons I get in medical school is lesson of failure. This lesson is never taught but we have to experience it ourselves.
Of course there are a few students who don’t get this lesson often. They’re too smart to get this. At first I pitied myself and envied them. I thought, “Why can’t I be smart like them? Why can’t I be so smart as myself when I was in high school?”
However, I then learned to accept my failure, to forgive myself. And because of that, I’m kind of “immune” to the stress caused by failure. It doesn’t mean that I don’t try to gain success. It’s just that I try to gain success but if I fail, I will not whine. I will try again.
