BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. Firstly, it seems to me a good initiative on the part of Mattis Collier to create Team One Love, where he tells his experience and at the same time she helps a lot of people, since its main function is to teach the young the main signs of abuse.

    Secondly, it is true that today there are marriages together for their children, economic problems ... However, I reckon that the main thing in a couple is the respect and good communication, the rest is secondary.

    To sum up, I consider that the most essential thing today is to be happy and to be good oneself, because the loves come and go and sometimes even make a bad move, we also have to make the younger people aware of the serious consequences that can bring them to have a toxic relationship and try their best to help them, because happiness isn’t with anyone, but in oneself.

  2. Nowadays more and more people are suffering from physical and psychological abuse.

    I believe that the worst abuse that a person can suffer is psychological abuse, since it is a deaf, mute and invisible mistreatment, that is, that makes you feel like a person that is worthless, is a verbal abuse that causes suffering Emotionally to the victim and it costs a lot to recover from it.
    No person should suffer any kind of mistreatment for love.
    I think it's great to create this campaign to help people and raise awareness that we should never allow any lack of respect, not allowing us to go out with our Friends or being able to talk to people. We should all help someone who suffers some kind of abuse, because as the text says, when you are a victim you are not able to figure it out for yourself and leave, so you need the support of someone to take the step.
    I think that love is beautiful, but we should not suffer for it, a good relationship has to be based on respect and trust.

  3. I'm going to write about teenagers relationships which are an issue very important at our age, since most of the teenagers start a relationship and they don't know the problems that can exist.

    On the one hand, teenagers that are in a relationship can be very happy if they get on really well. I think they should solve their problems talking without violence since it makes things worse. If we have a partner, she should be a person that helps you when you need her advice or when you are in a trouble.

    On the other hand, there are the named toxic relationships. They are very dangerous for both of them because it can put in danger their lives. It is generally caused because one member of the relationships wants to control the life of his partner, for instance, he wants the partner to do all thing he says or he wants to be the spotlight, with all these things he takes away the freedom of the other person and it causes psychological abuse. It's not only a problem of teenagers because I'm used to see on TV many cases of violence against women and I think the cause of the problem is that men haven't been well educated when they were younger.

  4. For the teenagers the relationships are very important because usually they experiment the first love and they feel things many very differents. But the relationships are very important in all stages of our life but in each one we feel things differents,although in the childhood the relationships not usually have problems.

    In the adolescence begin the problems because the relationships are more serious, althougth there are relationships that not have any problem. Many times, the teenagers don't know differentiate between a healthy's relationship and a toxic relationship. The teenagers should know that love not is the same that jealousy. Also the teenagers must be careful when the other person want have the control on you. This is a bad signal and these relationships hurt in the person and it's better to cut the relationship.
