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.

Walking among dishonest people



We are surrounded by thousands of dishonest people in this world: politicians, false friends, fake news... and when it comes to children, parents lie to their children in order to protect them, to manipulate them, to keep them in a coccoon... 

 

I prefer to be honest with my students and tell them things straightaway so that they can face problems better and even avoid dramatic situations.



Here are some related articles you can read about the topic:

  2. Walking among dishonest people
    In Spain there are many dishonest people but above all it is the politicians and journalists who publish false news. The politicians lie to us, promising us things that they do not fulfill then and make us believe that the country is going to be better with them in charge. The journalists create false news so they do not fire them and make us believe things that may have happened but not as they say.

  5. We life in a world where people use lies all the time and it is everywhere. For example, it is used for politicians when they promise many things that they wouldn´t comply, in advertisements that it say lies things about the product, in web pages on internet with lies information,…


    When someone lies we have some ways to detect it, although in some situations it´s difficult to detect it, something so important is body language and the facial expressions because it´s things that we do unconsciously, for example, when someone lies avoid eye contact,…

    Parents use pious lies with their sons because in some situations are necessary, for example, with Santa Claus that it is good fantasy in our childhood,… Many times, parents lies for protect to their sons in hard situations that they don´t understand when they are small.


    I think that the truth is so important in our life because it is a moral principle that makes us better persons and honest persons.

  6. The journalists make false news so that people are surprised and they do not throw them out of their work because their job is to invent news and the politicians make us believe that the country will be well in their charge, but they promise things they will never do.

  8. Are you honest or dishonest ? Most of the time I´m honest ,but , sometimes I´m also dishonest . Do you lie often ? And why ?.

    Being an honest person is one who acts sincerely in accordance with morality and who respects the stablished norms. Some people are dishonest ,this concept is related to lying , but being dishonest is not always a bad thing because sometimes we need to lie either for ourselves , to protect other people, to get what we want or just to give a better image of ourselves.

    Honesty allows us to live better and feel good with ourselves. It also allows us to increase confidence and to keep us on the right way. When we are honest , we often attract to our life people who are also honest and we can make good friends. When you are honest , people are going to believe in you , you will not be in trouble and your conscience will be calm.

    As far as I´m concerned , being honest is the best option to live a good life without lies and to be a better person .
