Denial and Isolation of Self—Feeding the Monster Fixing What’s Not Broken in American Education—Looking at Life on the Outside While Denying Life on the Inside
This book continues my journey before and up to my separation and divorce. I was a teacher for 7 years in various schools and these are my observations, suggestions, and opinions of the Louisiana school system. I’m not always right but I’m not always wrong either.
Denial and Isolation of Self Feeding the Monster Fixing What’s Not Broken in American Education Looking at Life on the Outside While Denying Life on the Inside is exactly as the title says. They are constantly changing things that don’t need to be changed. They are constantly spending money on things that don’t need to be bought. They are demanding more from teachers and less from the parent and the student. Not good.
The subtitle says everything! Of course this was more busy work for me during this period and there were reasons why I taught at so many different schools. There are always reasons for everything.
This is the 4th of 4 books written under this title. They are all part of the denial and isolation stage of grief. These 12 books were all written one piece at a time while I was experiencing life: divorce, abuse of all types, family, being a woman, narcissism, the 5 stages of grief, and living with disabilities like fibro and depression.
My journey is no different from any other person except that I wrote every bit of it down. Every single twist I went through from denying something was wrong, to isolating myself and being isolated by other people, to anger, to bargaining my way out of my reality with people, to sinking deep into depression, to that final bit of accepting which just doesn’t come around so easy because of other people; and, most importantly, because of self, which we tend to bury deep inside.
This book as well as all my other books in this series is jammed pack with beautiful poetry, commentary, prayers…whatever it took to build myself, I wrote down. I elected to share these works in hopes that it will build you, too. It was not easy writing this down and it is not easy sharing it with the world, but as my therapist once told me, If you can save just one, it’s worth it. And indeed it is.
