We Filipinos are used to life’s hardships and if you continue sticking on how hard life is then that’s all you’ll ever be. You will live your life miserably or Proud Mom Lesbian LGBTQ Pride Month Queer Equality LGBT T Shirt tee if you keep on dwelling on negativity. We only live once and you will waste your chance of being happy if you think miserably or negatively. I’ve read some comments here perhaps from foreigners who don’t know the real Filipino mentality but judged us based on superficial things without even digging deep. Particularly from Stephanie Hechanova. As much as you want your life to be perfect but things happen which we don’t have control of. Like in the case of constant calamities or strong typhoons, if we dwell on how badly we are affected by it and how it ruined our houses and livelihood, we will not be able to move forward. Nothing wrong with being happy or smiling after a storm has passed, you are alive, you are breathing, you were given a chance to live. I guess people are just jealous ‘coz we can’t be beaten down by any hurdles or life’s strong punches. We’re resilient, we remained happy and have stood the test of time. Some people of different ethnic race may misjudged or misunderstood us and that’s okay, they don’t know us completely for us to judge them.
