Story time Tuesday! The wise old man

Jun 30, 2020

Hello my dear students,

I hope you are all well. Come say hello and tell me all about it :)

At the start of the week, we might have troubles or worries about the week ahead. Or we might be struggling with troubles that have been following us around. I'm a great listener with a kind heart, if live every becomes too much, please let me know and we can take on your troubles together.

No matter the time, I will always do my absolute best to be there for my students.

I love to share your joy, and will always be there for your troubles.

With that, I chose the following story.

I hope you enjoy :)

The Wise Man

People have been coming to the wise man, complaining about the same problems every time. One day he told them a joke and everyone roared in laughter.

After a couple of minutes, he told them the same joke and only a few of them smiled.

When he told the same joke for the third time no one laughed.

The wise man smiled and said:

“You can’t laugh at the same joke over and over. So why are you always crying about the same problem?”

Moral of the story:

Worrying won’t solve your problems, it’ll just waste your time and energy.
