How often have you heard someone refer to you as a people person? You probably see this as a compliment. It is even possible that you chose to go into psychology because of the satisfying feeling of helping people who come to you with their problems.
Everyone makes mistakes. Even though medical professionals must often meet a higher standard than most people because they can literally hold people's lives in their hands, they too, make mistakes. The stresses of the job could easily lead to the misuse of drugs or alcohol to cope.
Like many of your friends on social media, you probably share your reflections of your day, your family or your job. A stressful day with a co-worker may compel you to vent on Facebook, and an emotional encounter with a patient may inspire you to tweet a message of hope.
