The listening and reading comprehension of Filipinos nowadays are very alarming. There was a viral video of Vice President Leni Robredo greeting a celebrity, Kim Chiu, where she said, "I know you're in a good place now."

Some Filipinos went crazy and ridiculed the VP for being dumb and laughed at the celebrity for being dead or something.

And I asked myself, "Is there something wrong what the VP said to the celebrity?"

The answer is no.

The BASHERS were like, "in a good place" is something you tell to a dead person.

WRONG! IT'S A NO.

The BASHERS also added that "in a good place" means heaven because of a Netflix movie called The Good Place.

WRONG! STILL A NO.

How to use "in a good place" in a sentence?

I'm happy, I'm in a good place. I'm living in a farm. I see chickens, horses, donkeys, sheep, and cows everyday. I live a happy life.

In a good place means you are in a happy state of life. Which I can also say I am really happy where I am right now. Mentally, physically I am happy. I am not struggling right now. I am alive and living a good life wherever I am on earth.

How to comfort someone whose loved one just died using "in a better place?"

My condolences. I am sorry for your loss. Your mother is now in a better place. Her suffering has already ended.

Has anyone ever been to HEAVEN?

Nobody knows where heaven is and nobody knows what heaven looks like. But when a loved one just died, we are wishing that he or she will be sent to heaven. Where a person will experience the afterlife without suffering, no envy, no jealousy, no hunger, just happiness forever.

When you're a Christian and you believe in heaven, then, it is your choice of belief that heaven really exist. This is your truth. But if you don't believe in heaven, you can say you haven't seen it and you've never been, therefore, heaven is not true.

How can you describe "in a good place?"

You can describe it wherever and whatever you want. A good place can be a heaven, a paradise, a playground, a kitchen with abundant food, an entertaining place, and etc. Whatever or wherever that makes you feel good and makes you feel happy, you can actually say, I am in a good place.

Is there a difference between "in a good place" and "in a better place?"

No. There is no difference at all. They are just actually the same to whomever you want to say such.

The celebration of life and death

Being dead or being alive, there is a thing called a celebration of life and death.

When you wish to someone to be in a better place, who just died, you are actually saying to wish them to have a HAPPY AFTERLIFE IN HEAVEN.

When you wish to someone to be in a good place, who is alive and well, you are actually saying to wish them to have a HAPPY LIFE ON EARTH.

Why do you say "in a better place" to someone who just died?

Well, we are assuming that he or she lived a good life on earth before he or she got sick or something. To be in a better place means better than earth, and we call it heaven.

Are the phrases "in a good place" and "in a better place" exclusive for the dead?

No, there is no such rule that telling these phrases are for the dead. It is a BIG NO.

They are synonyms and its difference will depend on how we use and understand them in the sentences..

Good and better place can be used for both alive and dead..

It seems that VP statement was misinterpreted.A good place for me is just likewhat you describe here, and alsoI find it a good place when I have a good environment and peaceful where there is no conflict between my neighbors.

The problem with some people is that they find fault even with the smallest detail, and are defensive when they're corrected :) People are becoming online bullies! Thanks for pointing this out :)

Well what you said is great, a good place for us varies from person to person, but saying he is in a better place is used to relieve the grief of people who have lost loved ones

Whatever it is judgemental is everywhere. People in our country is very sensitive in a smallest mistake because their interpretation is somewhat narrow. Big deal nmn palagi eh hehe

I've been trying to ignore this issue about the birthday greeting 😅 but I can't seem to avoid it. I also think that there's nothing wrong with what VP Leni said. People are just very anxious with the elections right now that's why they're quick to judge (It has gotten very toxic 🥴).

Sometimes we just interpret what they said in a wrong way. I am so glad you explain these phrases in clear and precise way ate. I'm happy you are in a good place.
