How are you at receiving criticism? Do you prefer that others treat you with kid gloves, or go for brutal honesty?
When we interact with human beings it is not unlikely that we’ll face criticism. I do not prefer to be treated with kid gloves, I like honest criticism which will help me in the long run.
I do not like personal attacks by anyone simply because it causes a lot of problem to the one who receives it.
Our world has improved and advanced in many fields but there seems to be no change in human behavior towards each other, for instance if you are from a certain country you’re immediately branded as a bad person.
I haven’t seen or heard of any place in this world where everyone is honest, kind, and truthful .
One of the worst forms of criticism is doing it silently, you are not criticized vocally but the way they treat you becomes obvious that they are back biting against you.
Tell someone you’re proud of, how proud you are.
It is difficult to describe just how proud I am of you. Your remarkable dedication to your family, your work and the students you teach is matchless.
You meet deadlines after deadlines with such calmness, makes me think you cannot belong to an ordinary class of human beings.
When God created you He knew why He sent you down among us, He equipped you with tolerance for the people you’ll come into contact with, brilliance, to deal with humans like us who lack the gift you possess to help us understand the complexities of life that we face from day to day.
I needed to know someone like you to realize there are good people like you who care and that not everyone is unreliable. I am truly thankful to know you!
Is there something you’ve always wanted to do, but never got around to starting( an activity, hobby, or anything else, really? Tell us about it — and tell us about what’s keeping you from doing it.
Lately I am thinking of writing a book, this is not something I’ve always wanted to do, but am thinking about it since last year. I’m not sure what I can write about. I have often thought about writing about the kids I taught.
My best experience came from teaching, I always loved kids they were a joy to teach, to talk with, I watched them grow into lovely human beings, they are so innocent,so outspoken, when they think someone is not being fair.
I remember about an incident I was teaching them religion, there was a story of the natives who allowed the visitors to take as much land as they want by walking, the visitors misused it by running as far as they could to claim the land.Immediately every single hand shot up in disapproval, they said, “But miss that’s cheating they were not permitted to do that”.
I thought about their reaction and felt God bless them, if our heads of states could be as fair as these kids, they would think twice before they took away territories from innocent nations. Wars in the name of peace would not have taken place.
Whenever I think of writing ,the faces of my kids I taught comes to my mind, and I tell myself they deserve to be written about.
