Recently a lady had posted a video on social networking sites telling about how when she was in school, she had a low self esteem as she was bullied by her teacher in various ways. She was put to shame due to her body size or colour or whatever. People went gaga over it expressing their views and blaming the teaching fraternity. I think it's a trend now a days to blame the teachers for anything and everything. In lower classes if your child is not eating healthy food, blame the teacher, your child is mannerless, blame the teacher, if the child is not studying, then of course blame the teachers. More than teachers bullying the students, I think it's the other way round. It's students who bully the teachers. I have been in to the teaching profession from the past twenty or so years. We as teachers only encourage our students to overcome their shortcomings or rather build up on their strengths.
And a million dollar question is,"Only teacher's bully is it? How about some mother in law's?" They spew so much venom from their tongues that you could make an antidote for snake poison with it. Of course not all mother in law's are like that and so it would be wrong to brand anyone.And how about your own parents? They constantly compare you with your siblings or to other children. There are not necessarily ulterior motives in what they say but it's just that they want you to excel in life and not face the difficulties that they had faced. So why target the teacher community always. Wouldn't it be nice if we work on our shortcomings and emerge as a strong person.
I think the best strategy would be to work on our strong areas. Develop a personality that remains unshattered, unfazed by what anybody says or does. Never give anyone the power to make you or break you.
Ignore.com would be the right thing to do as there are so many people always ready to give advice or point out your shortcomings. In your mind just ask that person to go see in the mirror and then call names to others. Develop a personality who's unfazed by what anybody says to you than blaming others for your nervous breakdowns. Remember Ignore.com is the key. When you do that people who are taunting you or shaming you, will ultimately get fed up and stop doing it.
