[00:00:00] And piggybacking on yesterday, if you haven't watch, watch yesterday's reel about things don't happen for a reason, is the whole idea of, oh my gosh, if I wasn't in X, Y, Z place such and such wouldn't have happened. Which is a very kind of attractive way of thinking retrospectively, right? Like, oh my gosh, had I not matched at Stanford Hospital for my residency, I wouldn't be where I am today.
I wouldn't be with my partners. That would be so crazy. Now, again, I love my partners. They're loves of my life. I'm so happy I'm here. But retrospectively, this is very kind of heartwarming. Like, Ugh, if I hadn't done this, I wouldn't have gotten to here. But prospectively, you can see how it's very catastrophic thinking, and it's one of those little teeny things and in a daily basis adds to people's an uneasy feeling of what are all the opportunities that I have missed because I wasn't in x, y, z place or that I.
So it makes you feel more passive as opposed to the fact that you can create the happiness wherever you are.
