Fame, glory, knowledge, wealth, even love, who needs them? Well, we all do.
Beneath these, however, there lies a certain shimmering jewel, a vital piece of buried treasure, if I may call it so. Its called “humor”.
More than being treasure by itself, this abstract entity is perhaps the map that leads is to this treasure.
Now, I may not be the best person to go around talking about what makes a successful person tick, for I am not Stephen Covey, nor am I an author of one of those many billion self-help books that flood markets of today.
Nevertheless, we must stop and look at the people in this world who probably have the least sense of humour. That’s right, a schoolteacher. More specifically, a bad school teacher.
In fact, everyone who is bad at whatever they work at all day, appear to be ones who are the most rude and stuck up.
Perhaps teachers more so, because they are bitter. Bitter, that some day, almost all the frolicking teenagers they see will rise to their dreams and surpass themselves.
Perhaps this was written merely out of spite and irritation, but it certainly has an element of truth to it. A sense of humour is important, if for nothing else, to live a healthy life and to experience the joy of watching those around succeed.
Even a bad schoolteacher will agree with that.
P.S. This was NOT intended to insult any of the aforementioned profession, I do believe that a good (emphasis on good) teacher truly has the power to make or break the future of this world, but more on that later.
