Dr. Buttar impacted many lives through his medical practice and personal connections. I never got to know him personally, but I am happy to say I knew him through his public persona, through his many interviews and his website. I recognize the value of the deep connections he must have had with others because there were only so many people who he could reach through his practice and through his online presence. There are only so many people who could pass through the halls of his office or sit on his exam table. There are only so many people he could touch through personal contact, but the people he reached in life will now create a positive ripple effect that will extend beyond his immediate reach, fulfilling the great meaningfulness of his community. Sharing the lessons he taught because he cultivated and fought for meaningful relationships
I recognize the value of deep connections with others and the simple mathematical fact that there are only so many moments a person can share with a finite number of people. I see every interaction with people from a higher perspective because there are only so many people I will ever meet in my life, only so many people I could touch. One of the things I will learn from Dr. Buttar is how he mentioned his family and his relationship to God and country. Memento Mori Life Lesson: Cultivate meaningful relationships. We may not reach every person directly, but we can have genuine meaningful relationships with the people we do reach, with the people in our lives today.
The death of Dr. Buttar serves as a reminder to prioritize our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Take care of yourself so that you can continue pursuing your passions and making a difference in the world. This includes self-care practices, maintaining a healthy work-life balance, and seeking support when needed.
