I'm so glad we've found each other and that this platform can be used as a place of openness and honesty. I find myself really thinking about what I want to post, enjoying others mental health pages, and so much more. Thank you again, for being a part of it - and for taking the time, to on occasion hug my brain.
"Credo nella parola Noi.
Credo che, al di fuori di ogni incomprensione o dubbio, le persone possano stare insieme, superando ogni diversità ed egoismo.
Si tratta di accompagnarsi, di non smettere di essere se stessi, ma allo stesso modo non trascurare che si è parte di un unico, delicato, meccanismo che necessita di sincronismi, e che si sta insieme per amarsi e realizzarsi insieme, e non per semplice compagnia.
SÌ, credo che Noi sia un bel posto." ♥️
During my first year as a teacher in South Korea, they trained me on something called "Skinship." "Skinship" is like "friendship" through touch. As an American, at first it was weird to be so affectionate with my students. To pick them up, rub their heads, or backs every time I walked by, and accept their little kisses. But, in Korea, it was very important (in private Academies. I've heard it's different in public school.) As I grew close to my students, had them over my home for sleepovers, hung out with their families on holiday, and was even visited by my boys (who were teenagers that I'd taught when they were 7) because their moms needed someone else to "get through to them," I can't help but consider how impactful Skinship training could be for educators in the rest of the world. #affection#loving#care#skinship#physicalcontact#security#hugs#bonding#healing#mentoring#educationiskey#educationislife
