I love my neighbors!

"Love your neighbors"

That's what I always hear from the elders. I don't know why they said that but one thing is for sure, being kind to neighbors is an act of a good deed, an act of humanity. Our neighbors can also help us in return if we need them. Aren't they? I can always remember what my grandma said when she was alive and kicking.

She said, one day you'll leave this world behind, so live a life you will remember.

Just kidding. That's a line from a song.

My grandma said, even if our neighbors aren't good towards us, we should always show an act of goodness to them so they will learn from us. I am about to disagree but she said I will grow horn on my forehead if I disobey neighbors. And so I didn't mind talking back because I was just 10 years old then.

Accept it or not, we can't deny that there are neighbors we favor and there are the ones we despise for some reasons. Personally, I love my neighbors but sometimes, I just want to forget them that they are our neighbors so I can treat them badly, well they deserve it. I think it's human nature that we have people who we hate even though they are not doing anything to us. Why is that? Even if we just see them, we seem to change our mood from good to being bad. But then again, I remember my grandma and that's why I calm myself and say,

"I love my neighbors!"

Hey! I am not my grandma so I won't love them everytime. I found it so hard to love myself and loving them all would be tough one for me especially in times some of them are being too nosy. Do you feel me?

I don't want to sound so bad so I will just use love to mean hate. I hope you get to read this so you'll understand what I mean through out the article.

I love my neighbors who are always asking for lemongrass and malunggay.

It's not bad to ask if you don't have one but asking for 10x or more is too much for me. Especially that it's my grandma who planted the lemongrass. Nevermind the malunggay since it's just easy to plant. But the lemongrass, oh my, my grandma really had a hard time taking care of it and she's old already.

Everyday, I feel like there are 5 or more neighbors who asked for malunggay and lemongrass. And all of them are the same person who consistently ask. I know many of you here can relate. Especially Filipinos.

That's why I'm planning to give them something to plant so they won't keep on asking. Isn't it nice if they do have their own? I'm not really mad at them I'm disappointed because they can plant their own but why didn't they? Okay, this is enough. I love my neighbors.

I love my neighbors who always borrow our traditional coconut scraper and don't know how to return

I don't know if it's the exact English term for "kaguran" or "kudkuran". You can correct me if I'm wrong.

There will always be this neighbor who likes to borrow our coconut scraper and just forgot that she borrowed it. It's fine if their house is just a step away but then I would pass by 6 houses to get to them. It's okay if she forgot it once or twice but always is too much. But then again, we have this Filipino culture to lend what we have even though we already know that person's performance because we believe they might change it.

I got really annoyed when my mom accused me that I was the last one who used the coconut scraper and asked me where did I put it even though I didn't. She always forgot things that's why she also forgot who borrowed it. Consequently, I went to each of neighbors house to look for it. It's okay to borrow but at least learn how to return.

I love my neighbors who knows the future

Yayy we do have this type of neighbors. The know-it-all type. One look, and then your future will be known. They act like they can predict anything. One time there's this girl in our neighbor who always like to party and get home at dawn. One of the neighbors saw her.

That one neighbor just go to houses to spread rumors on what she saw. She talks badly about that girl and said that girl will have no future and she will got pregnant one of these days. The rest of the neighbors also agreed and continue to spread the rumors until it came to my mom. My mom is a bit nosy so she listened and I cut the conversation by calling my mom to help me out in my cooking.

Days have passed, another gossip came to my mom. That one neighbor who spread rumors about the girl, is nowhere to be found since she wasn't seen in a while when her daughter was rumored to pregnant.

Well, what goes around, truly comes around.

I have a lot to tell about my neighbors but I will leave the rest to you. I am so sleepy this time. I know you do have stories about them too. Let me hear!

Kudkuran. ๐Ÿ˜‰ awa ng Diyos wala naman kaming mga kapitbahay na etchusera. Pero yung sa tanim meron din nagkwento niyan sa noise.cash noon. Sa malunggay din ata or sa kamias. Yung sila pa nanghihingi tapos sila pa nagmamadali. Eh may ginagawa din naman yung mga may-ari nung puno. Tapos meron yung college batchmate ko same kami subdivision. Yung katabi daw nila na bahay eh lagi sila inuunahan sa langka. Pero nakatanim yun sa mismong bahay nila sa labas. Binabalutan ng garbage bag tapos minsan narinig pa niya yung matanda na tinuturo na yung bunga na kukunin. Nahiya naman yung batchmate ko na pag sabihan. Yung sa 6 na bunga, dalawa lang napunta sa kanila. Grabe talaga yung kapitbahay nila na yun.

I can basically tell why you 'love' your neighbors hahaha. Just be good to them okay, lol! But your grandma is right though. Just don't let your neighbors abuse your kindness.

And yes, give them something to plant so that they won't be asking every time. Fortunately, we don't have neighbors like that. We voluntarily give them what we want to give away.

Yeah, that's why I respect them still because of grandma. Oh glad that your neighbors are not asking all the time. It's okay to ask but not consistently. And you are so kind to give them voluntarily kaya siguro di nanghihingi ๐Ÿ˜

Hello, here we also have neighbors almost, almost like yours. I have my yard with many aromatic plants and they always come to ask me. Now I have given some of them small plants on their birthday that they always ask me for. When I give them a gift I tell them how to take care of them so that they can have them in their yard. Many neighbors have already stopped coming. They got the message. I hope it helps you too. Greetings
