Men don't show their support through words, but actions. Women show their emotions more, and view relationships as communication. Men aren't program that way. Communicate how you felt, not in an upset way but as how it made you feel. He can't argue your feelings and it will allow him to understand because perception is reality and that's how you perceived his actions. I'm POSITIVE he had no intention of hurting your feelings.
The principal just called to let me know they picked another candidate.
He said they had 50 applicants and even getting an interview with them was an accomplishment. He went on to say I was one of the top ones they went back and forth with and decided on picking the other teacher. He said if they had two positions, I would have been hired as well.
“You don’t measure love in time. You measure love in transformation. Sometimes the longest connections yield very little growth, while the briefest of encounters change everything. The heart doesn’t wear a watch - it’s timeless. It doesn’t care how long you know someone. It doesn’t care if you had a 40 year anniversary if there is no juice in the connection. What the heart cares about is resonance. Resonance that opens it, resonance that enlivens it, resonance that calls it home. And when it finds it, the transformation begins…”—Jeff Brown (via cosmofilius)
Hi! I really want to stay at my current school but they didn’t have a position for me when school let out due to lack of enrollment. There is still a possibly I could end up there as they get their numbers in closer to the beginning of the school year. I’m lookin at other schools just to keep my options open.
You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to.
You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept.
I had an interview today at a school I really want to work at…when my boyfriend called after he got off work, he played off the interview basically saying they’re easy to get and didn’t ask about any details as to how it went. Nothing. This interview was very important to me. Maybe his mind was busy with something that happened at work, but I am always invested in his endevours…I didn’t feel that back today.
My boyfriend asked me to log into this website where he buys workout supplements and stuff and wanted me to order something for him because he won’t have a chance to make the sale today. Anyway…this is what I can’t stop thinking about…his password is his friend’s name who is a girl who he has known for a while now…
“Someday you’ll find the right person, and you’ll learn to have a lot more confidence in yourself. That’s what I think. So don’t settle for anything less. In this world, there are things you can only do alone, and things you can only do with somebody else. It’s important to combine the two in just the right amount”—Haruki Murakami (via psych-facts)
I work in the reading club after school and there is this 6 year old soon to be 2nd grader that came in a couple weeks ago a very reluctant reader. Every time I would ask him to read something for me, he would pout, try to flee, moan and whine…the works. I would do reading games with him, make it fun and would still resist. I have been pushing with him every day and he has slowly come around as a reader.
Today, he read 5 pages of a book that is a level above his reading level. He is the one that went to the classroom library and picked that book out whereas before I had to pick a book for him. When he brought the book over to me, I said that it might be a little difficult but let us give it a try. Well, to my amazement, he read and read and read all by himself and didn’t want to stop! It was amazing to see. His grandma works at the school and I asked him if he wants to show grandma what a great reader he is and he was ecstatic! The pride and excitement in his eyes as he was reading for grandma and he would look up at me and just smile after each page…that was priceless.
He even asked if he could take the book home and finish it because we didn’t get a chance to in the classroom.
“Anything you want in love you should have. If you want someone to send you flowers just because it’s Tuesday, you should have that. If you want someone to write you love letters, you should have that. If you want someone who looks at you like the sun rises and sets because of you, you should have that. In life, we often have to settle for “okay” or “good enough”, love should not be one of those things.”—c.h.dixon (via kushandwizdom)
