Sitting in the back of a car, drinking tea out of my passenger camping mug, I sit reflecting on life, and this guilt that accompanies taking time out to plug off and enjoy life.
I wonder if our lives are consumed by this need to work. That our identities are defined by our work.
I wonder if we’ve lost our natural curiosity for our lives around us. I wonder, that in my teaching, how I can get teenagers and young people to be curious about the world and the people around them.
I wonder if we can get empathetic communication back between all of us, and then I wonder did we ever have empathetic communication?
Then I wonder how do we develop and learn empathetic communication? Then I realise that it’s all about accepting the person as they are, with their life experiences and treating them as a human being.
Because we have a lot to learn from each other and we can make the world a better place by learning from each other.
