Fare Increase

As we all know, we have been experiencing this oil price hike. Due to war in some part of the world, crisis is going up. One crisis that is a big impact to all of us is the unstoppable increasing of oil. Oil Company does not have any choice but to increase it also and it affects those whose bread and butter is driving public vehicle. Drivers do not have choice but to increase also the fare.
Here in the country where I live where people are used to riding public vehicle in going to school, work, and to other places they want to go. It is a big burden to all people who are commuting in public vehicle and that include me. People are blaming those who are in the position who promised when they are still running for any position in the government. One week from now drivers will be conducting a rally to stop this fare increase. There are several rallies that happened before but nothing happens because still the fare increases. I hope and pray that rumored rally will not be fallen into deaf ears. Prayer is the only weapon we have right now in battling this challenges and trials in life. Let’s pray and keep the faith.

Status in the Society….

We are all children of God, created by His own image and likeness.  We are all equal in His eyes.  He gave us a good place to live for us to enjoy our life here in earth.  But why there is rich and the poor?  Why  there is no equality here on earth?  Questions that are left unanswered for no one knows who to ask.  It is so sad to know that there is rich and poor.  Others do have wide land they owned and others do not have even just a small piece.  Poor ones work and serve the rich one for them to live and survive in life.  There are lots of differences between rich and the poor here on earth.  And this status in the society affects people wherein a poor one cannot  fall in love by rich one.

This is what had happened to my cousin, who fall in love and have a relationship with the rich one for a year.  He promised to prove to his family that status in the society is nothing in the field of love.  For all is fair in love.  A word that is keep by my cousin and hold on to it for she believe in him and trust in him.  She didn’t mind on how her boyfriend’s family looking and stare at her.  She can take everything for she love him that much.  That promise vanished when he says, he can no longer keep it.  Says it is better to end it for he wants to enjoy the life of being single and he has plans to help his family financially.  Poor reason for a man just to say goodbye.  A reason that is hard to buy for it is very shallow.  My cousin accept it for she understand from the very beginning that loving someone who is in high status in society is difficult.  So sad that there are people who are like that, they look for what your status.  I hope that this will end for we are all equal.  Although we are in low status, we are still human and deserve to be treated well.

Life Isn’t Fair…..

Everyone of us goes through toughs times.   No matter how much we wanted it to make things perfect, there are things that will tease us not to make it correctly.  All will fall and tumbling down against us and sometimes we lose focus and concentration.  We might still say it is okay and we can handle it, but deep inside we are frustrated of the things that is happening around us.  We sometimes felt sorry for ourselves and  for others.  We are thinking that life really isn’t fair.  Every thing  that we think will fall into places are opposite of what we are expecting. 

The funny thing is that we still think that life will be fair, but in reality its not and it wont be.  Here on earth, we should know that life really is not fair.  There are different status in life, education, and jobs.  There is a big gap between rich and poor.  Some rich they are superior and above over the poor people.  Poor people do see rich one above them also.  Sad but it is true, and rich people are taking advantage of that.  They used poor people who are in need to do job for them in a very low salary.  I just hope that rich people will see that poor are also human deserves to be respected and treated well.  Truly life isn’t fair in this world we are live in, but in the eyes of God we are all even and equal.

Criticism….

People are so mean sometimes.  They love to criticize others, and look for the bad and negative side.  They love to do that make you feel like little less of a person.  Every time you do something, they will make you feel like is not right.  To them you are not doing the right thing.  It sometimes makes us angry and losses our temper for what they are doing to us.  They think it is funny if they do criticize others.  There are two kind of criticism, the positive and the negative one.  Most of the time we heard negative rather than the positive side.  Because it is easy to find the negative.  It is not hard to find the things that are not pleasant to their ears and eyes.  Plus, when we say criticize it is more of the negative side. 

To avoid this kind of feeling there is a right way of dealing criticism.  Be appreciative, because through their criticism it make us a better and stronger person.  Avoid getting defensive, accept what they say and never argue.    Because it will make you look guilty of the criticism.  Make it as a basis to do it better next time.  Fighting to a person who criticize you is a waste of time and energy.  The best way to respond to a criticism is to simply say: ” Thanks for the feedback”.
