I have been wanting to post this for some time now but I really don’t want to sound whiny or too, well, nega. I keep on asking myself if I’m just being too sensitive or too epal. The exact same thing that’s getting into my nerves lately. But I think not. I could probably use the #JustSaying on this specific blog post, but I’m not liking that hashtag either as most seem to use that as an excuse to be insensitive or plain rude. So ano nga ba ang point ko?
Yan. Yan ang point ko. Think before you click. Plain and simple. Kasing plain and simple ng outfit ng #FabSkye sa post na to. (Mai-connect lang)
Anyway, I’ve been seeing a lot of insensitive people on the internet these days. And it’s not those who post foodstagrams after a calamity okay? I mean those who post insensitive comments or statements and then hide it behind #blessings or #blessed. So it’s double annoying. Really.
You have every right to boast about your achievements and success on your wall but please don’t try to be “humble” by using hastags. I remember my favorite The Morning Rush DJs mention it on the show. And like me, they find it irksome. I also don’t find it necessary to say your #blessings and then mention other’s misfortune or un-answered prayers or make others feel inferior. Or say that you are thankful for something because you THINK others are wishing for it anyway. Like “I’m a disgrasyada! Yahoo! #blessed Okay na yun kasi madami nga dyan nagkukumahog magka-anak”. Alright! Who are you kidding? Ugh! And please don’t use #blessed to make people around you feel so #unblessed.
Here at home, iritang irita talaga ko when the #FabSkye was #hospitalized for the second time because of pneumonia last January. Side comments such as “Ano? Naospital na naman ang anak mo? Napakasakitin naman nyan.” or “Buti pa to si ____ hindi pa naoospital ever. #blessed”. FYI, hindi po porket na-ospital eh hindi na #healthy ang bata. At hindi porket never na-ospital eh sobrang healthy na. Talagang hindi mao-ospital si _______ kasi 2 months na yung ubo at sipon nung bata hindi nyo pa pinapacheck up! And some families are not as #blessed as you. Asthma runs in our family and on the ReigningTatay’s family. So basically, Skye has more chances of winning pagdating sa asthma. And because I am a responsible parent, I am doing everything in my power to TRY and avoid Skye getting asthma. And because our pedia is one of the best here in the Philippines (she’s a former President of the Philippine Pediatrics Society and is a breastfeeding advocate), she is also doing everything in her power to make sure that Skye won’t develop asthma. So yeah! Nao-ospital po sya not because malala ang sakit but because we want her monitored at all times and gusto namin agapan ang ubo para hindi mauwi sa hika. So if only, there’s no asthmatic genes running on my daughter’s blood, hindi din sya mao-ospital. But that’s life. Ganun talaga. And for me, dahil nga panganay ako at nakita ko kung gaano ang hirap na pinagdaanan ni Mila sa mga asthmatic kong kapatid – I am proud to say that my baby is actually #healthy because she is #exclusivelybreastfed. 9months ang pagitan ng pagkakasakit nya. Unlike my siblings na halos linggo linggo nasa doctor. Na halos ilang araw lang ang pahinga sa antibiotic. Na isang major appliance na ang nebulizer sa bahay namin, sobrang major na hindi pwedeng wala kami nun. Pag nasira kelangan palitan, pronto! Tsaka kasi naman may mga magulang dyan na alam na ngang may viral na sakit ang anak eh nilalabas pa. #wagngmanghawa
I also remember that one post from my friend. She overheard a girl saying “ewan ko nga sa pinsan ko bakit hindi magka-anak eh PCOS lang naman ang problema”. Gusto kong saktan yung babae. Because I know girlS with PCOS and hindi lang sya LANG. It’s a major thing. Plus, paki mo ba kung wala pang anak? Nagbago ba ekonomiya ng Pilipinas dahil wala pa silang anak? Yung ba ang tinuturong dahilan ni PNoy kaya nagresign si Purisima? ANO?!! Wala! #walakangpaki
So ano nga bang pinaglalaban ko sa post na to? Wala! Wala akong pnaglalaban. Kasi for sure yung mga insensitive na tao na tinutukoy ko, deadma-dela naman. Either in denial or maiinis kasi tatamaan sila. #sensitive pag sila pinapatamaan pero #insensitive mag post. Hihihihi.. #alamna
Feel ko lang talagang mag rant ngayon. #walalang :-P
For sure may iba dyan na lumalagpas na ang kilay sa bangs dahil sa outfit ng bata. Hihihihi! Yeah! There’s nothing super bongga on this #OOTB. Nada. Waley. Coz you don’t have to be bongga everyday. You just don’t.
Actually, this is the #FabSkye’s everyday morning outfit. Pag gising nya kasi, nagpapalit talaga sya from jammies to sando and I change her cloth diapers. She’d wear this cheap baby shoes that we got from Paco so she could practice walking and so she could get a bit of morning sun. Kasi nga #hikain ang pamilya ko. Isa yan sa aking #antihika project. The baby’s turning 1 in a couple of days so sana, SANA effective. But kung hindi, well atleast malaki laki na sya. And hopefully tougher. Okay na ko dun. #blessings padin yun.
