As we wrap up the first season of #Married2Med, I would like to take a moment to reflect on the roller coaster ride that I just endured for three long months.
This was my first experience on a national TV show. Boy what an experience!
I always believe in life that everything happens for a reason and that reason is for my benefit. However difficult an experience it may be, I always try and find the good in every and all situations.
So, some of the responses that we all received over the season came as a HUGE shock to me. Putting our lives and families under the fiber-optic, HD microscopehould not give people a free reign to slaughter us on Twitter, slam us on Facebook, and give one a carte blanche option to hate. Please try to remember that we are still people, still women, still mothers, daughters, humans, doctors, MDs. You may not agree with us, you may not like all of us, but I ask you to try not to turn it into to hatred. Remember -- for your own sake if not for ours -- in life what you put out comes back to you.
I know I can speak for all us, when I say that these comments are insane, considering the few hours that you really get to know us. What you see in the fishbowl is not the whole person. I am a mother, a wife, a daughter, a good and caring friend, an author, and a CFO of two thriving companies. I teach and inspire women with my "business of living" and I work hard for the charities that are close to my heart.
