There are two types of people in the world, the one who gives voluntarily from the will. And the other one will just give to be better known and to be proud of.
And there are also two people who know how to see whatever you give. The other one knows how to give thanks right from within them. And the other one, you will be told, "I hope you spent it on yourself,", "I hope you didn't give,", "It's just a small amount".
Just a small reminder: we can't just pick up the money.
There are no money-producing trees which we just pick up to use and spend.
You can't say, "It's just a small thing" if you know that that amount we can't just get from the internet where and to whom. Sometimes we really have to learn what the word gratitude means. We don't have enough knowledge, it's just like that, like that. The more we learn to be grateful, the more we learn to accept and give thanks with all our hearts.
It's so annoying for people who don't know how to say, "Thank you". Then they will tell others that you can only do that because of this thing. They don’t think you just want to help, that you give because you want to and not for yourself.
It is not bad to give, it is not bad to receive. Do you know what's bad? The one that someone gave you or helped and then you accepted but you didn't thank. It's as if you're expecting something higher in that kind of thing, as if you're thinking more, "You'll just give something like this, I hope you just put it in your pocket.", You know what they say, that helping and giving, big or not, it can innovate on something?
Why are we taught the right thank you? Why is it that we are taught the right way to say "Thank you" ? that is, to learn to be grateful for the things that are received and given to us, no matter how big or small.
We are often corrected when we are young when someone gives to us, don't our parents say to be thankful? They tell us that we should often be grateful for the small or large things we receive. It's also not good when we ask for something from others, and then we don't exceed the thing that we have high expectations of, we will get angry or disappointed. Remember, we are the ones who ask and we are the ones who expect so we cannot be disappointed inside. Expectation vs. Reality, that is.
So here I have a story, one time my friend from here asked me for a gift. At that time I was still in elementary school because they said that as long as you were from Manila, you were rich. That's one of their beliefs here. Of course, I'm not, I said that's not true. When we were in Manila, I experienced the hardships of life, often our dish was pure noodles and pancit canton just to fill our stomachs. Even with Malunggay, they don't give away because they sell it.
We have a kind neighbor, let's call him Kuya Lito. He used to give me food for my family, he would tell me "Here, bring it, take it home so you can have something to eat". At that time I just stared at him and took a run. The next day with my mother, we went to his house, she thanked Kuya Lito for what he had done and I saw how he smiled as if there was a twinkle in his eye as he listened. When we came home I asked mom, said: "Mom, why did you say thank you earlier?"
And the mother's answer, "My child, that's why we thank someone or something because we are happy with what we received from above that was passed on to those below. So you, make it a habit to say thank you to people who show good to you, and even to people who don't show you well. Be kind while you're young because it's not good to cultivate anger ".
So since then, I have become accustomed to being grateful for the things I receive here on earth.
Hindi ko na papahabain to since di maganda pakiramdam ko ng ilang araw na, dapat lahat tayo ay marunong magasalamat. Kahit sa maliit na bagay andami na niyang maitutulong saatin, wag tayo maging sakim.
