The teacher who constantly references their past success to prove why you should believe what they say, is teaching you to listen to yourself.

The teacher who chooses their rhetoric over compassion, is teaching you to speak up NOW.

The teacher who pushes you around in order to point out how resistant you are, is teaching you to walk away.

The teacher who needs everyone to agree with them, is feeding on approval.

The teacher may be worshipped, articulate, deft in human behaviour even; philanthropic, even… but deluded by their own persona.

Delusion is dangerous, especially when it has a microphone.

Popularity isn’t always true power.
Money isn’t always success.
Experience does not guarantee wisdom.

Question it all. And do not doubt the wisdom of your rage.
