A big part of who I am is based on my experiences, both good and bad, which have taught me to always have a positive outlook on life and to take things one day at a time. I don't worry about things that I have no control over and I don't try to predict the future - what's the point? I don't really worry about things I do have control over either - all I can do is my best. I'm not sure how or when, but at some point during medical school I stopped worrying about others' perceptions of me and decided to always be myself. My life is free of drama and I'm infinitely happier.
Also, OKC apparently thinks my personality is "more arrogant" and "worse mannered." I can't promise I always have great manners, but I'm definitely not arrogant. Confident, maybe. Arrogant, no.
