random thoughts: on responding
“Huwag mong hanapin ang sarili mo sa iba…” heard it from a man who must have been through a lot in his life. It makes sense.
Sometimes I get so frustrated with the expectations I set for myself, and for others as to how they should be. I tend to think that maybe others will be thinking the same way as I should. I’m expecting some kind of initiative from people, but it’s just making me more frustrated. Perhaps I should just completely stop expecting (but will not surely stop hoping). I know I can’t get them to change their views, but there’s a possibility of influencing them.
Each personality (be it admirable, mediocre or badass type) is unique. We are given such so we could learn how to relate with each other. If all of us are thinking the same way, that would be so boring. We are put to the test each time as to how to deal with people around us. We are challenged to think and to respond appropriately.
Will it not be better to ask yourself - HOW SHOULD I BE to them? You can’t control what they will throw at you, but you sure can give them a response that will make them think… surprise them with your humble wisdom.

We always have a CHOICE
A story to inspire you all…
Buddha was well known for his ability to respond to evil with good. There was a man who knew about his reputation and he traveled miles and miles and miles to test Buddha. When he arrived and stood before Buddha, he verbally abused him constantly; he insulted him; he challenged him; he did everything he could to offend Buddha.
Buddha was unmoved, he simply turned to the man and said, “May I ask you a question?”
The man responded with, “Well, what?”
Buddha said, “If someone offers you a gift and you decline to accept it, to whom then does it belong?”
The man said, “Then it belongs to the person who offered it.”
Buddha smiled, “That is correct. So if I decline to accept your abuse, does it not then still belong to you?”
The man was speechless and walked away.

I’ve read this beautiful article on Reader’s Digest Asia (this month’s issue) awhile ago. It’s about regrets and the title is “DON’T REGRET REGRET” by Kathryn Schulz. I tried to find a link on the web but I couldn’t find one. A very enlightening article. Hope you guys can read it too.
