This week has been so exhausting for me. Everything is messed up. Everything is tainted with some degree of uncertainty and confusion. When I mean school, it pertains to everything. Studying away from home, being out from my family, living alone, coping with every day experiences, working with people with various ideologies as I have, beating with the daily dues, being aware of the current affairs our country is now facing, having to deal with all of these – and a lot more – is very consuming, as if it drained my whole energy.
Now that it’s again weekend, the last days of the week, I just thought of having a break, at least a little rest. With all the hustles and bustles of everyday challenge for survival, I believe its now time for reflection. We’ve been facing serious socio-economic, political and moral threats and we’ve been so stuck up on these matters that what we are doing right now is admittedly “destructive” in a sense that the general welfare of the people is already at stake. We are pointing fingers to whom we thought are responsible for this. Of course, I am again pertaining to the Gloriagate Tapes. Many are claiming loyalty to her administration, so as to many too are not. In fact both camps are constantly calling for rallies to invite people to believe what they stand for.
Isn’t it about time to reflect and recollect all the things that have been happening around us? Instead of merely pointing fingers and accusing who’s who, why not try to think critically of the possible factor of why all these things happen. I mean, I know it will sound idealistic (and for that hilarious) because it seems to be impossible to act on this matter. But I think it is the ultimate way to achieve what we are calling for, what we are aiming for as a country. Instead of blaming people around, instead of playing this kind of insanity, why not stop and think awhile.
I have been complaining that everything is difficult. If you want to get what you need and what you desire, it is for you to work it out. If I want my life to be patterned to the best that I want to, it is up to me. If we want our society to grow and grow progressively, it is up to us, the people molding that community, setting images as based on our set norms and standards.
The question next to it: how?
Isn’t it much okay if we start everything right within ourselves?
It’s time. Time to reflect.
