"The clothes a surgeon wears help to present an image. The lab coats and badges and scrubs all work together to indicate a person of authority. Someone you can trust. When the clothes come off, that's a different story. We're sensitive, vulnerable, human. And just as prone to questionable judgement as anyone else."
"It might be hard for a surgeon to admit, but there's no shame in simply being human. It can be a relief to stop hiding, to accept who you really are, and let the world see you that way too. A little self-awareness never hurt anybody because when you know who you are, it's easier to know what you're about and, ultimately, what you really need."
