If you go into medicine to feel loved, there is a high chance this may lead to burnout. I regularly inform patients when they inspire me: quitting smoking after years as a hardened smoker, losing loads of weight etc. Recently a patient really turned her life around after finding yoga and I told her it had inspired me to go back to something I had not done for years. We are lucky to be exposed to so much of the human condition and learn from it
