This is the reason you got into the biz, and there’s nothing wrong with being a little selfish about your selflessness. You bring comfort and relief to the sick, the weary, the dying. You bring a small ray of sunshine to patients who really should have no reason to smile or think happy thoughts any longer. You deserve to feel good about what you’re doing - it is exceedingly noble and important work. Just don’t lift any of your healed patients above your head in a show of triumph. They hate that.
