Only if we could understand the implications.
I've learnt that we only give off what's within us. Just the way an orange can only give out orange juice (not apple juice), so also a sadist can only give out negativity not happiness, not love and definitely not compassion.
Some humans are just aggressive. Some are impatient, some just talk too much😀 ....just to win an argument and others are just not the way you wished. right?👺.
It could be as a result of an unstable home, childhood reflections, unfriendly management staff, no money😀(some people smile ONLY when their account is translates to what they want. Now this is relative)
Any way, if we as educators find that we are quick to defend, argue, quarrel or the likes, then let's look within ourselves and fish out what's bothering us. Something could have happened in the past that influences our responses to circumstances within our immediate environment especially in the classroom.
Where there are children, we must be full of love and compassion. Especially as educators. Can't? Once there's a will, there'll definitely be a way.
Love is all we need.
