" Be patient, you were like me "...Nobody was born teacher!!!!

I saw these words on the back window of a car with signs of a beginner. "BE PATIENT, YOU WERE LIKE ME!!!" And to be honest, THIS WORDS MAKE ME THINK A LOT HOW MUCH PATIENT WE ARE WITH PEOPLE WHO TRY TO LEARN SOMETHING, WITH BEGINNERS. Many times, I admit, no I do not have patience with beginners in any field, but raising two children, I learned that you must have patience with people who try to learn, are in began in a car driving in the profession, alive. We forgot not often that we were novices in the past, that others have ignored us, maybe we have criticized, can we have charged. You think that when you learn to drive a car or tried to learn a new foreign language, or when you first really tried to cook a cake, have been much better? Nobody is born learned, it is sure.

I used to work as a teacher for grades school pupils particularly levels 3 and 4. Sometimes, I do lose my patience but I often reminded myself that those kids were the reflections of myself when I was like them trying to grasp and learn new things.Thus, feeling a bit of sympathy towards their difficulties rather than impatience. We sometimes forget that we all started from unknowing until one day one patient person taught us what we wanted to learn.:-) Now, I realized we must be patient for someone who is trying to learn what we already knew. We must return the favor.:-)

Teachers can understand better what it means to want to learn, and someone to come tell you, I'm smarter, be careful you're a beginner. Maybe people who think they know everything, would learn what mean patient too, what mean to be understanding; this is a human nobility.

Nobody is perfect. That is why when we criticize people, we also must criticize ourselves. Even though we are in a certain field long enough to a point that we are called professionals, we must always criticize ourselves. Grow and grow. Do not stop. Of course, we must give the beginners premium. Don't go around demoralizing people.

Well there is a saying at Greece which says " Who ever is in haste he finally falls down". I remember myself learning driving, and while I was in the teaching car a guy was shouting behind me because I wasn't going fast enough (for him!) That made me angry, but I realized that maybe if I also learned how to drive I was gonna be like him... Sad part is that everyone is in haste now days...No one is relaxed, everything has to be done at dt time. Myself have a moto (borrowed from the LOST series) "Never tell me what I can not do." and I entered the following phrase "I just need my time" I am let's say a fast-thinker, and I never had speed problems at learning something. Ps. I recall now that I get VERY frustrated when someone types really slow..I grap the keyboard and type it myself lol!

That is my biggest moto in life... I"ve lived for it most of my life. Maybe that"s the reason I'm still hopeful for a better life inspite of all the obstacle I've gone through.. I've had a broken heart just recently and my patience keeps me living until I will find the right one soon. We"ll hopefully.. I like this saying a lot..
