Anything I did value would often get shelved for the people I wanted to value me

Keywords: {0}

I would supress, shelve and ignore what I valued until one day I woke up and didn’t even recognise myself anymore. Yet when I became single, I found that I spent an almost unhealthy amount of time alone, this was however a necessary evil because in that time I picked apart everything I had ever known, I studied scripture, watched sermons, read self-help book after self-help book. I analysed, I tested and reanalysed. Eventually, started hanging around different people, I observed, took notes and after a lot of trial and even more error, I started to understand what I valued, more importantly I started to understand why I valued those things.

Do not let others scare you out of something that you love doing and that I know you are good at

Keywords: About Me , Teaching

I became a teacher because I love to share my joy and love of history with people. I also became a teacher because I want to help others, especially children. I want them to know that they are loved and they are valued. I may not be able to save and reach every child, but I will try my hardest.

We all want the same thing: simply to be valued by somebody else

This survival mode explains why I get angry, anxious, or sad when I feel less valued.  The limbic part of my brain worries I may get kicked out of my protective and be lunch.  Right or wrong, just the perception of being devalued activates our ancient, irrational, emotional, and often impulsive response.  We worry we will be lunch.
