If only Santino is right here beside me, he could have given me some enlightening words na from Bro. Yes, I need a whack on the head right now. He could have reminded me about the true meaning of “giving”.
Well, let’s admit it. Most of the time, we can’t help ourselves to hope and expect for something in return when we give. Or when giving, we are readying our ears to hear the words “thank you” and we feel bad, if we don’t. We abhor “ingratos”….”hmph, di man lang nag thank you.” Or sometimes, we nag and seemingly “collect” what we’ve done good or favors in the past. Or, we give with the belief of karma, that we’ll reap the good deeds we’ve done but if we don’t, we stop being kind.
But then…we’re just human beings with emotions. There are those kasi na di man lang marunong mahiya.
Haha! I told you, I need Bro’s tapik-tapik. Bro, please help me. Please help them too..
