Feeling critical and cynical, disillusionment about your job, and not feeling that you are making an impact are all signs of burnout that you should look out for
Perfectionism is not sustainable or achievable and gives us more anxiety when we can’t be perfect
You have to make choices about what your priorities are and decide if you are on the path you want to be on
You have to work through the fear of thinking you are a failure, disappointing family, or feel that your identity is solely as a dentist
If you don’t think you are financially ready to get out of dentistry, learn to live on less or understand that the exchange of money for freedom is a decision that can affect your well-being
The first change you make to your career may just be a bridge towards something else, and may not be a permanent career
Take care of yourself first, eat well, sleep, exercise, have quiet time, and make sure you are happy with who you are
Everyone has a power within themselves to become better, they just need to find it, whether through experience or self-revelation.
