I've had a busy, and really hard, past few weeks, and I've had a few students message me stating I'm ignoring them. Mind you, I informed all of my students that I've been feeling very depressed, and dealing with a lot, and that it's taking me longer than usual to be responsive.
A few students cancelled the class -- which though disappointing, is fine and understandable. Those aren't the ones that I'm talking about, though. I'm referring to individuals who felt the need to send me harsh messages, nearly yelling at me, for the fact that it's taken a few days for me to respond to a message.
If you are a current student of mine, please know that I'm not trying to ignore you. I'm generally very prompt about replying to my students; usually getting back to them the same day they send a message..but lately? It's been taking a few days. My apologies for that, but I'm working on it.
To everyone else...just please remember that life sometimes happens, and that your mentors are humans and sometimes can't be as prompt as they might like to be.
