Today I opted to fight with the students (i.e. impose my will) rather than build community and work WITH them. Sigh. I needed to repeat my mantra of be patient, kind and loving. I don’t know if it would have helped, but I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t have hurt.
Seems both Keb and I were swimming upstream because he was mean to his friend, Zack. This has me worried because this is the second time in a week. Maybe it’s due to how hard it is for me to make friends that I fear for Keb. Of course, I can’t control it. Which, as we know, is one of my problems.
Tomorrow is a new day. I can work on it then.
