Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 290 – Caring


“The more we genuinely care about others, the greater our own happines and inner peace.”

Allan Lokos

Thank you so much, Spidey for such a profound quote, today.

Care is something on my mind a lot, right now, because, as a teacher, it is our duty to care about the pupils under our wings.

Especially now, care is so important, because of what has been happening over the last few months. (Pandemic, anyone?)

We’re watching these tender souls, whether young or old, reaching out to them all, especially the ones who have had awful experiences during lockdown. From illnesses and losing loved ones, to possible exposure to abuse, both physical and verbal, social anxieties and worry about being with others again, we’re seeing it all.

And I tell you what, we do care. A lot.

So much so, that sometimes the emotional workload doesn’t leave our shoulders when we depart from our school building. It follows us home, as a worry, a concern, a deep need to want to do more.

We try to do what we can, but sometimes it doesn’t feel like we’re doing enough.

But the feeling we get when a parent appreciates how we are helping their child, or them, and when a child turns to us for comfort, or confides in us, because of that circle of trust we’ve built – that’s priceless.

That care doesn’t stop with my pupils. It’s there always, from my family, to friends, colleagues and my blogily. And if I can reach out to help any one of you, it enriches my life as much as I hope it helps you.

So… tell me, do you find it easy to care?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps.  And enjoy your week!

    Teaching isn’t a job. It’s a calling, a way of life.

    I tend to overburden myself with others’ problems.

    Thats so true, Sis! You are very busy with your work, and caring for your family, and all the feathered and fured 😉 too. Dont forget caring for yourself, because you only can care furthermore, if you are selfbalanced and healthy. All the best, Michael

    Caring about others, and respecting their views, is more important now than ever, especially with certain leaders stoking division and hatred. NOTHING good has ever come from that

    Caring about others is keeping the love inside active. It may not always be easy but it let’s us remain human.

    It is easy to care, but sometimes hard to show we do. I sometimes wish it could work by osmosis…

    I can imagine how tough it is to process and yet clear your emotion bank to enable your own kids to deposit their worries. Parenting gets harder with teens i always thought. They need you less often but more intensely. So, here’s my spidey for you… give yourself and hub some space and care. Love ya!
