Someone asked this question in another viber group, “What are the things I wish I knew when I was younger?” Or the things I wish my parents taught me:
Hindi ka lugi if you are humble and meek because people will extend grace to you. Lugi ka when you are arrogant and proud because people will avoid you.
Hindi ka lugi if you are submissive because your bosses will give you favors. Lugi ka when you are rebellious kasi they will give you what you deserve.
Hindi ka lugi if you are nice and kind because if you do people will be nice and kind to you, even if they are naturally rude. Lugi ka if you are rude, kasi people would not want to be around you. If you are nice and someone is still rude, just avoid him and be nice to everyone else.
Before I learned these things I was very arrogant and proud, rebellious and rude. Naisip ko ngayon na sayang ang lahat ng mabuti na namiss ko sa buhay, only because I thought the ways of the world was better. Hindi pala. I learned that world will punish you when you obey its ways. So consider the ways of the Lord and live a better life.
