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.

Can we live without lies?


We live in a world full of lies and liars and we know little how to find out what it is a lie or a real fact. Actually, we live among lies and liars. We are liars ourselves and we can't stop telling lies.

  10. We live in a world full of lies. We lie to the people around us and even we lie to ourselves. But can we really stop this?

    Actually we live among lies, for example, on television. How many times television has advertising shown brands or has it want to sell us products that they actually are lies? We also see this on internet, in online shops that try to sell us clothes for prizes lower than they are in real. But not all lies are through internet or television.

    In real life we lie without being really conscious. Sometimes these lies are little and harmless. But the problem is bigger when we lie in important situations and then it hurts us. For example, in a job interview,in the marks we got at the school, in the street or to our friends. The latter can end with many friendships.

    Another situation in which we are liars is on social networks. There are many fake profiles of people who pretend to be someone who is not. Or even people that have a different behaviour in social networks than in real life.

    All in all, we have to be careful in what we say, what we do or in what we lie about. We should stop telling lies and always try to tell the truth.

  11. Lie is something that we say but that is not true. We live in a world of lies. We learn to lie as children , between the ages of two and five. We lie to our employers , our partners , and most of all to our mothers .

    But , what is the real reason why we lie ? Sometimes we lie to protect ourselves and to hurt or avoid hurting others. But some people also lie with a bad intention. When we lie it is easy to know because we get nervous and our hearts race. But there are people who don´t happen this and it´s so difficult to know if they are lying or not .

    Scientists have tried to find a way to know if a person lie or not . They have created a machine lie detection called polygraph. This machine is connected with your body and detects if your breathing ecelerates with the questions . Is used it by policies in their investigations.

    In my opinion , sometimes it is necessary to lie but with a good intention and not to hurt someone. I think if you lie , you should tell the person as quickly as possible.

    1. Lies are part of our daily life, and I believe they should be used as long as they don't cause problems to anyone.
      In society, at many levels, lies are told.
      Sometimes to get something you want, not what you need; We like new shoes and we lie
      to get them.

      On other occasions no lies are told, but we do not tell the truth in full, with what
      we are lying.

      For example, when a partner asks me if I like her new look, I sometimes use a little lie so she feels good, so she doesn't feel sad.

      On the contrary, I believe that when crimes are committed, the truth must always be told, although this is not always the case.

      For example, when a lawyer defends a person, he usually uses lies to make his work successful.

      In conclusion, I think that when we lie, we do it to avoid problems, or not to worry people we love.

  15. A lie is an assertion that is believed to be false, typically used with the purpose of deceiving someone. We lie all the time, despite the fact that it costs us considerably more mental effort to lie than to tell the truth. We lie to promote ourselves, protect ourselves and to hurt or avoid hurting others.

    On the one hand, lying is extremely stressful. It causes you to be constantly looking over your shoulder and wondering who might be finding you out. You are always running through the lies you have told in your head, trying to keep track of what you have told to which person, and what is the next lie you need to tell. When you are honest, you do not have those worries or the negative consequences of your lies.

    On the other hand, according to researches, the average person hears up to 200 lies a day and it is estimated that we lie up to nine times a day. Moreover, lying may seem simple and harmless at first, but just like any addiction, you will soon find yourself trapped in your lies, more than you could have ever imagined.

    To sum up, we live in a world full of lies and liars and, in my opinion, I think being honest is very important because it keeps us away from problems and it helps in developing good attributes like kindness, discipline, truthfulness and moral integrity.
