Recently, I had an experience that made me question whether our students are able to manage and respond to situations involving emotions appropriately. In an exchange with a student, he responded using hurtful words.


The use of words or language, verbally or written, can have a profound effect on one’s emotions. Just as cyberbullying, with the use of defamatory remarks, can cause much affliction to the victim, the use of insensitive words, especially to one who is already experiencing intense emotion, can often aggravate the situation.

It is never easy to experience and control or manage negative emotions, especially anger. Our education system should prepare students to react to such situations appropriately.

Schools have counsellors to help students deal with such issues. But perhaps we could schedule weekly or monthly half- or one-hour sessions on dealing with emotions and responding appropriately in writing or verbally.

During these sessions, students could be taught the significance of emotions in daily life and, in particular, the possible adverse effects of responding inappropriately to someone who is already experiencing intense emotions.

They must be made to realise that their response, in whatever form, can have an effect on a person’s psychological well-being. Words can contribute to social disharmony by engendering feelings of distrust and hatred.

In our pursuit of academic excellence and knowledge, we must bear in mind that emotions form a very important part of students’ lives. Managing these emotions and responding appropriately to someone else’s are important, as they go towards preventing disharmony, which can threaten the social fabric.

大好きだったお兄様との関係は最悪の形で終わりを迎えた。その行為がどれほどの影響があるのか私にはわからない。一緒に同じ傘で帰ったあの日の事を忘れてしまったのか」 「恥ずかしい記憶だから覚えてなくていいのっ」 綺羅にとってはあれは恥ずかしい記憶に入るらしい。ベッドに寝転がりながら他の本を探す。ショックだったよ、自分がまさかそう言う気持ちを抱いていた事実に。喜んでいる咲良の笑顔は可愛いから好きだ。乗客477人のうち、2人が死亡、164人の救助が確認されている。「そもそも、兄さんはシスコンと呼ばれる事をひどく嫌いますね」彼は事あるごとにシスコンであることを否定していた。「実際に話を聞いて考えてみるだけ、なら」 「そうか。小柄で腕の中にすっぽりと収まるサイズの先輩は抱き心地のいいぬいぐるみのようだ。だが、破局は事実、その沈黙も俺個人の事情ならば納得もいくはずだ。明日、シャワーでも浴びればそれでいい。」 「前から行っていたあれか?今、桜華を傷つけてしまう事は後の彼女に悪影響を与えてしまうということだ。煙草の煙は害だからね。自然を身体で感じている、表現するならそういう感じ。」 私は目の前のナギの顔を見ながら、これから始まる幸せを実感していたの。
