Change is hard.
There is a lot going on not only in education, but the world, that can wear down on people. Doing the things we want to do and the things we actually do can be far apart. Sometimes people can wear on us because they don’t agree with the direction we are going and can be easy to blame others.
But sometimes we need to step back and realize that a lot of times, it’s not them, it’s us. More specifically, it is me. Life can be tough and it is easy to get worn down, and I have noticed that sometimes it is easy to sit back and focus on what others are doing that isn’t quite making the grade, but many of us tend to look at how we have been “wronged” as opposed to what we can do better ourselves.
This quote cannot be shared enough:
“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”
When it is shared though, we often think about it in the context of others, not ourselves. If we to look deeper into the quote, we often our fighting our own battles and have to not be so hard on ourselves, but also realize that we all have room to grow.
As this time of year can be so busy and overwhelming, so it is important to not be so tough on everyone else, but to also take care ourselves.
