The Burden Of Children

41qjfvyohULShould parents be notified by school officials regarding incidents of bullying? Should the circumstances be revealed? Should the parents and officials work together? Can they?

Legislation is now being drawn up in certain states, in order to make sure that schools are in communication with parents about possible incidents of bullying. There are issues here which are highly sensitive, and sometimes police, schools, and parents need to be extra careful. If the wrong thing happens, it could cost someone with their lives.

There was a boy, 12-years-old, who had killed himself with his father’s shotgun. In his note, he wrote that he can’t live with the bullying. He is not alone. So many bullies, everywhere, and things are getting so much worse with social media. I can’t even imagine what it must be like to grow up in this age of social media. It must be insane. Actually insane, or rather it would for me. I can barely handle it as an adult, let alone someone who is going through some of the most awkward natural changes humans go through.

And people are also quick to blame the schools and officials. What about the parents? What about the bullies’ parents? Do they have nothing to do with this? The 12-year-old was also bullied on social media. Why didn’t the parents know about this? Why didn’t they dig a bit deeper? These are all legitimate questions, and they may not have the answers we’d expect. Eventually, it comes down to the parents of both sides. Not the school. The schools do what they can, I think. In some cases, their hands may be tied. It should be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, I feel. Or else, we take res03kind600ponsibility and accountability off of the parents’ shoulders. And that is not okay, either. The school is there to educate the kid on certain things. The parents are there to raise the kid from birth and protect him.

There are no absolutes here, and this is precisely why I am saying that there should be no particular blame placed. The parents of the 12-year-old are suing the school. Time will tell on whether or not this will yield any changes. I can’t see this having so much of an effect, but I am open to seeing how it all turns out. The boy is gone, and his parents are living a nightmare, but maybe others can be saved from a similar fate.

Breaking Boundries Removing Senses

I’m fairly elated as I write this article. I’m not sure how this will progress, but I think I finally am convinced to jump into trying new things. I’ve always had a fear of change. Even the smallest change like getting a new coat. I also get rather bored with routine. As you can imagine, trapped in between my fear and boredom, I find some strange thingsensory 2s to occupy my time. As long as they’re not frightening to me. Recently, I’ve been hearing about a lot of interesting health trends. Things like cupping and oil pulling. I’m sure that many people have heard these terms floating around, but they just sound like some heebeejeeby holistic stuff. Well one day, I set off down a pathway from my boredom and towards my fear, and it  started with one of these deemed “heebeejeeby holistic stuff”.

 

I’m sure that you’ve already deducted that I was tired of mundanity caused by fear. It was time to do something about it. What peaked my enthusiasm and interest for this particular project  was the sensory deprivation tank. It sounded way more fearful to me than the likes of acupuncture, and cupping. Sitting in a tank with nothing for an hour. And by nothing I mean so feeling, no sound, no smell, no sight (which I’m sure that you got from the name). You’re not just facing your mind, you’re having it hit you like a teacher in the 60’s if you were talking in class. Really hard.

I booked an appointment at a really nice place I found. It seemed quaint and open. People liked to do all sorts of interesting rituals sometimes involving psychedelics or interesting tantric meditation sessions, or both at the same time. The point was, that this was an open space, which was perfect for making me feel comfortable with myself and my shenanigans.

The day I got there was overcast and still. It seemed like the nature created an ambiance for me and my healing session. I got there and the owner greeted me warmly with a robe and some amazonian tea. I went into the shower and scrubbed my hair with the nice tea tree oil shampoo that they provided. I remember having a thought that the tingly feeling would be one of the last things that I felt for a while. So what makes you be able to feel nothing is that the water is at the temperature of your skin. It’s salt content is heavier than your body so you float. Otherwise everything else is black and quiet.

 

I was calm and freaking out at the same time. At first I became aware of every thought and sound that I heard from my body and the water. It was very overwhelming almost as if I was standing in a crown full of people and hearing everything that everyone was saying and doing. Eventually, I got used to it and my mind quieted down and went to some really strange places. I don’t think I got so much healing done, I’m not even sure if I was conscious the whole time, but the experience was one of the most incredible that I’ve had.

I hope I’ve inspired you to break routine and dive into fear.
