Happy Third Anniversary with TweetNewscaster: Third Annual Report

Dear Readers:

Thank you for your continuous patronage on this site.

We are now celebrating our Third Anniversary. Even if we had not been active now unlike last year, the author had managed to post few articles for this year, just to keep this site running.

The author during this year also experiences personal problems, and had accomplished personal tasks. These things had gave less time for the author to attend to some problems in this site and respond to them. The author extends apologies to our dear readers and followers for being inactive for various months.

As part of our celebration of our third anniversary, let us share some accomplishments for this year:

  • As of this year, we have 48 followers. To our followers, thank you so much for your continuous trust in this site!
  • We have published 310 articles since we started running this site, or 10 articles this year, a far cry from more than a hundred articles published last year. This was due to hectic schedules which resulted in less time for writing articles.
  • This year, we have focused more on writing articles under categories Love Advice and Accounting. Again, the reason was less time to write more articles.
  • The article Plataporma ni Duterte, which describes the platforms laid down by Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte during his presidential campaign, got the highest number of views this year with around 2,011 reads.

  • Our official Facebook page had garnered more than 90 likes. This may seem a bit ridiculous, but we will focus more on likes fetched in natural way.

The author also announces its future plans:

  • We will still focus on articles related to Love Advice and Accounting. This is due to the fact that I still have to prepare for more important matters.
  • The state of some categories like Renditions, #DuterteSerye, and Foreign Language: Minionese is uncertain. We will have to render them inactive as the author has no more time to do new articles on these things.
  • We will have to discontinue articles under “Funny Trivia”. Also, no more time and I have no more interest to do articles under this category.
  • The future of this site is not so sure. I do not know if I can extend this for so many years, since I am being pressed to accomplish more important matters.
  • The author has announced its plan to award articles which promote fun and the other side of the news, which is the TweetNewscaster’s mission. For sure, citations will be the type of award to be given to them. Tentative month of awards will be on November, and will be exclusive for blogs who follow this site. However, I am not sure if we will push through this.

Meanwhile, thank you so much for believing and trusting in this site. With your help, we can further spread the fun and the other side of news to the world!

From the writer who loves you very much,

Jake Zyrus reveals himself, accepts new project

MANILA, Philippines – Change is coming.

After his recent breakup with the X-Factor Philippines singer Alyssa Quijano, the international sensation Charice has ultimately transformed himself, changing her name to Jake Zyrus.

Charice related that he had undergone various transformations to make himself more manly, and expressed that with changes in his body, a change of name is also needed.

The name change has ultimately created a buzz in the Philippines, especially in social media. While many, especially from his fans, had been glad on his decision, he got the most critical remark from his grandmother.

Due to his bold move on transforming himself, other celebrities had plans to change their names. In fact, Jodi Sta. Maria had now decided to change her screen name to Jodi Ann Santos.

Name-picking

When asked for the reason behind the name Jake Zyrus, he said that he had considered first other names.

“After naming mag-break up ni Alyssa (Quijano), kinailangan kong mag-move on. Naisip ko, bakit hindi na lang kaya gumawa ulit ng bagong pangalan, para sabihin na heto ako, bilang totoong tao.” (After we and Alyssa parted ways, I had to move on. I thought, why not make a new name, to say that this is me, this is real.)

It is to be remembered that everybody at first called him as Charice Pempengco, which was shortened later to Charice.

Ngayon, puwede pa namang paikliin. Puwedeng Char na lang ang itawag sa akin. Haha.” (Now, it can be clipped further. They can call me Char. Haha.)

Run out of names

Jake explained that the alternative name Charito is not good to hear even if he transformed. ‘Charles’ may be considered.

Running out of ideas, he asked his friend on a suitable name for him, which his friend did not provide, but the friend advised Jake to base his name on his idols.

Bigla kong naisip si Jake (Vargas), tapos si Miley (Cyrus). ‘Bakit di na lang kaya sila, friend? Jake Cyrus, gandang pangalan.’ Ginawa ko na lang ‘Z’ para maging astig. And that’s me – Jake Zyrus.” (I suddenly thought of Jake Vargas, then Miley Cyrus. ‘Why not pick their names, friend? Jake Cyrus, that’s beautiful name.’ I had changed the spelling to ‘Z’ to make it more manly. And that’s me – Jake Zyrus.)

Retro record

With the transformation in him, he had expressed his intent on engaging with new projects. According to him, his change of look and personality needed a change on the history of his singing career.

Dahil ako na nga ito – si Jake Zyrus, nasa isip ko na kailangan kong balikan pati na ang mga una kong mga project after akong sumali sa Little Big Star. This time, bilang si Jake Zyrus, gagawa ulit ako ng MV ng Lucky Me, magpapa-ad ako sa New Zealand Creamery, kakanta ng ‘Pyramid’, sasali sa ‘Glee’, at marami pang iba.” (Because this is me – Jake Zyrus, I had thought of a need to remake my first projects after I joined the Little Big Star. This time, as Jake Zyrus, I will remake the music video of Lucky Me, remake an ad of New Zealand Creamery, sing again the Pyramid, join again the cast of Glee, and so many others.)

He had considered also to redo his previous albums. By singing again his past tracks, he felt that this action will rewrite the history of music industry. For example, he wanted to revise the song Pyramid as follows:

Shawty’s love is like a pyramid (ooh)
We stand together till the very end (eh ooh)
There’ll never be another love for sure (ooh)
Iyaz, Jake Zyrus let we go

Meanwhile, Senyora, in her Facebook page, had illustrated an example of the changes after Jake’s transformation:

Jake was flattered on the change brought about by a videoke user. He hopes that any changes relating to him will be effected not only on the present and future periods, but also on the past.

New substitute

Jake also manifested his new personality in acting as the new Malia in the evening program La Luna Sangre (The Blood Moon), as told also by Senyora:

When asked why he was picked as Kathryn’s substitute, Jake replied, “Marami nga din pong mga nagco-comment kung bakit wala si Kath sa programa. Actually, sinabi niya po sa akin na magpapahinga na daw siya dahil napapagod na siya sa kakakumpara sa kanya kay Nadine.” (Many had questioned why Kathryn Bernardo is not now part of this show. Actually, she told me that she needed rest for she is tired being compared with Nadine Lustre.)

Sinabi niya sa akin na magkamukha daw kami. Kaya inofferan ako na maging substitute niya.” (She told me that we are alike. So she gave an offer to be her substitute.)

Since he is now in that program, the viewers can see now if the prophecy will be fulfilled or not.

Sobra po akong nagpapasalamat sa ABS at binigyan po ako ng opportunity sa La Luna Sangre.” (I am thanking ABS-CBN so much for giving me the opportunity in the program.)

Because of his radical transformation, the network plans also to include him in the comeback season of Your Face Sounds Familiar. The rationale is that if Charice has the capability to transform himself into Jake, he has also the capacity to transform into other celebrities.

Love Advice No. 68

In our past love advices, it is my original aim to reach out to many people as possible, since love can strike anyone regardless of race or nationality. Actually, the ultimate aim in giving love advice to this site is to give justice to those who are experiencing anguish and suffering when it comes to romantic love.

For the first time in this site, I will give Love Advice in the English language. This is a tribute and the author’s way of saying ‘thank you’ for those who like some articles under this category, who are mostly non-Filipinos. As I see that they might not yet understood my style and strategy in handling love problems like these for the past three years,  this article will be for the benefit of those who understand English, especially for non-Filipinos. Okay, let’s start!


From a comment in Daming Alam’s Facebook page:

Hello everybody im from grade 7 . Im inlove with grade 10 omayghad he’s handsome. When i first see him my eyes become bigger and my heart is beating so past. He’s have a feeling for me. Suddenly we have a conversation and he say he like me to. And i am omayghad were finally dating on public places with holding hands while walked.

We eated lunch together at 711 (7-Eleven). The food is so yummy but i cant eat very well because he is looking at me. Im so happy because im tell my mom all of this. Im studying very well and he too.

But im so sad im shocking because she suddenly grab my hair and pushing and pull it. Sabunot in tagalog im crying a lot and we decided to brake up. But i still love him. For you please [wait] for me to graduate my study. I love u to very much.

(Author’s note: “Sabunot” in Tagalog actually means pulling one’s hair, especially when a person pulling has deep, intense hatred toward the other person.)

My Advice:

Finish your studies first.

You’ll have to focus on your future, even if not with him this time. Investing in your future during your high school days – by studying – helps you grow as a person, and helps you find the one who can lead you to a brighter future (that will benefit you).

While you are focusing first on more important matters, like excelling in academics, you can use this time to evaluate your personality and that of your future partner. This is also a good time to form proper habits when dealing with the opposite sex, to learn what is right and wrong, and to set achievable standards when picking for your true love.

What do I mean? You have to ask yourself so many times these questions:

  1. Why do I like this guy?
  2. Why do I love him?
  3. Would our future be brighter or darker if we continue our relationship?
  4. Do I really love him?
  5. Will my love for him last forever? (Or, would my love today be still my love even if five or ten years will pass?)
  6. Are we ready to face many trials and challenges if we are together?
  7. Am I making sure that I am not pushing myself to him too hard? (This might tell you if he is really flirting with you or not.)

More than just physical

You say that you are in love because he is so handsome.

But is being handsome the true measure of love?

In other words, are you really in love?

The answer is no.

Let’s admit it. At the first time we met our opposite sex, and see their good-looking physical attributes, such as being beautiful/handsome and having beautiful hair, six-pack abs, slim waist, and muscular arms, we feel that we are in love. Since our eyes sees these things, your eyes become bigger and it pushes your heart to beat so fast. This is typical of many high school students, and the author is not exempted when it comes to these things.

However, true love must not stop there, for the eyes does not look only on these physical attributes, but also his/her whole personality. You should had look further on his personality, his thoughts, his attitudes, and all the things that make up that guy you see today.

This is aside from the fact that there’s no such thing as “(true) love at first sight”, but you can have a crush, or an admiration, towards him at first sight. You can be attracted to that person in an instant. However, love is not being developed in an instant.

Ignorance isn’t good

However, you were surprised when some girl had suddenly pulled your hair. Actually, she is his girlfriend.

Is her act justifiable? No, even if in the first place, you engage in a relationship with him. However, your ignorance is not really an excuse in this case.

Ignorance is not a bliss when it comes to these things. The reason is that someday, ignorance can lead you to disastrous consequences. If that girl, who maybe had existing relationship with that guy, can give you trauma by pulling your hair, how much more if you are in an uncomfortable situation? You might end up mauling each other, filing each other a case in court, or worse be killed by that girl.

It is ignorance also that hurts you more. If you had known beforehand that he is in a relationship with the other gal, you might get hurt too – at first – but later on you will not feel the extreme hurt. However, you had not obtained the opportunity to find out his real score. As a result, you only knew recently that relationship only when your hair had been pulled. Not only you had been hurt physically, but also emotionally.

This situation should serve a lesson for you. You should have known first who he is, especially in some cases where some girls like you would not verify his personality. He may have been an addict, a drunkard, a gambler, or a man who has responsibilities for his family.

Even the night changes

This is just a puppy love. What does this means? Simply put, it is just a childish love, the type experienced by most teens like you.

Does this mean that this kind of love will fade? Sadly, and most of the time, yes. Why?

Let me share with you my past experience. (Let’s call her Crush # 1.) At the start of my first year in high school (Grade 7), I had once came with a thought of marrying a girl, even if I knew that this would require enormous task on my part. This includes travelling around 100 kilometers (62.5 miles) to be with her. At that time, I am thinking that having a crush on her means that I am also in love with her. I had gone too far to the point of thinking a future together with her, when in fact she did not even know me personally.

Now, ten years after thinking of these things, I came to the point that it is no use anymore to think of future together with her. Fate did not provide time and opportunity to be with her, and in fact, she is already in a relationship. Meanwhile, I had also other important concerns over my personal life.

I am illustrating to you my experience in high school so that you will learn even a bit of lesson from me. This hopes that you will reflect if you really love him, or it is just a fleeting expression of your emotion.

It is to be noted that there are many changes happening within us even in a short span of time. Say for example, your crush for now would not be your crush five or ten years from now.

Actually, as I scanned the picture of my crush (Crush # 2) last time, questions popped into my mind: If that is her picture during her high school days, who was her crush then? Now that I see her personally, who is her crush now? Did she thought of that guy who is with her now at the time she was in high school?

Yes, there will come a time that some years later, you will also think of these kind of questions like I did.

Brain-heart balance

Essentially, we have to love using our hearts, like what you said, “my eyes become bigger and my heart is beating so past”. That is true, especially for us high school students who will love and be loved for the first time. I understand this reasoning, since I had been there. However, while we are going to love, we don’t have to be contented by using our eyes and hearts. We must also use our brain. We have to think, and think, and think.

Why do I have to repeat ‘think’? Because most of the time, we cannot control our emotions. This helps us to see if the guy or the gal we spend our love with will be all worth our hardships, emotions, efforts, and tears in loving the opposite sex.

Thank you for sharing with us your experience. Even if you did not really seek help and love advice from me, somehow your experience will help other people to learn more from you. This will help many young people to know more about themselves and to think deeply before getting into a relationship. And this will save them from so much pain and suffering as a consequence of their incorrect decisions.

Love Advice No. 67

Noon ay nabigyan na natin ang e-mail sender ng mga payo kung ano ang dapat niyang gawin kapag matigas pa rin ang ulo ng kanyang ex. Ipinaliwanag na natin kung bakit iyon ang dapat gawin ng lalaki, at ipinaliwanag natin na mali ang magiging desisyon kung palalayin na niya ang babaeng iyon.

Malamang na dahil unti-unti na niyang sinunod ang ating payo na magtiwala, eh nagpadala ulit siya ng isa pang follow-up na tanong. Sige, simulan na natin siyang bigyan ng payo!


From e-mail:

Good am po. Maraming salamat po sa advice. Sa ngayon po, cool off muna kami. Nag-usap kami. Sabi niya, kailangan daw niya ng panahon para baguhin ang sarili niya, na itama ang mga pagkakamali niya, at susundin na daw niya ang mga magulang nya.

Para naman daw sa amin iyon – para tanggapin ko daw siya ulit at nang makalimot din daw ako sa ginawa niyang kasalanan.

Sinabi niya din na matagal na daw niyang pinutol ang ugnayan nila ng lalaki, at ako daw ang mahal na mahal niya.

Ano po ang gagawin ko: Susundin ko ba siya? Maniniwala ba ako? Eh ilang beses na siyang nagsinungaling sa akin, at feeling ko pa rin na baka mag-ugnayan pa rin sila ng lalaki niya. Salamat po.

My Advice:

No choice ka na lang kundi maghintay sa kanya.

Siya na mismo ang nagsabi.

Pero last na iyan. This time, sasabihin mo na sa kanya na huwag na niyang uulitin ang ginawa niyang kalokohan. Kailangan na niyang magsisi at magbago.

Sa pagkakataong ito, bigyan mo na siya ng deadline. Dito mo makikita kung talaga bang seryoso siya sa iyo. Dito mo rin makikita kung sineseryoso ba niya ang mga pangako niya sa iyo. At dito mo rin makikita kung talaga bang mahal ka niya.

Sa panahong ito, kahit sa huling pagkakataon, ibigay mo pa rin sa kanya ang tiwala na hinahanap niya. Last chance na ito na maari mong ibigay sa kanya. And yes, susundin mo pa rin siya. Kailangan mo pa ring maniwala sa kanya, kahit na sa huling pagkakataon na ito.

Still convince her

Kung ganoon pala ang dahilan niya kung bakit kailangan niya ng panahon, bakit hindi mo rin siya kumbinsihin na mali ang inaakala niya? Na talagang mahal mo siya?

Ipaliwanag mo pa rin sa kanya na sa kabila ng lahat ng mga kalokohang ginawa niya, handang-handa ka na tanggapin siya. Na handa kang kalimutan ang lahat ng masasakit na nangyari sa inyo. Na handa ka na magsimula kayo ng bagong kabanata sa inyong relasyon.

Ipaliwanag mo sa kanya na kahit na anong mangyari, eh lagi ka pa ring nariyan para sa kanya.

Accept, but still monitor.

Ano ang puwede mong gawin para malaman kung totoo na nakikipag-ugnayan pa rin sila ng lalaki niya? Kailangan mo silang bantayang mabuti.

Sorry, pero ito ang pinakamagandang bagay na maari mong gawin.

Paano mo sila imomonitor? Narito ang aking suggestions:

  1. Alamin mo kung saan sila madalas magkita. Sa mall, sa bahay ng ex mo, sa bahay ng lalaki niya, o sa ibang lugar? Maari kang magtanong sa mga kaibigan nila o sa mga magulang ng dalaga tungkol sa kanilang mga pinupuntahan.
  2. Mag-isip ng mga gamit, bagay, o sitwasyon na hawak mo sa ngayon. Ito ang gagamitin mo para malaman mo kung tama ba ang kutob mo. Halimbawa, mayroon ka bang app o device na maaring gamitin para mahuli kung nag-uusap ba sila? Ito ang istilo na ginawa ng dating girlfriend ni Jovit na si Shara Chavez para mahuli kung sino ang kausap ni Jovit sa oras na iyon.
  3. Maari kang magpatulong sa mga magulang, kaibigan, at kapamilya ng ex mo, (at kung maari, pati na rin sa kakilala ng lalaking iyan). Alamin mula sa kanila kung ano ang ginagawa ng ex mo – kung nagsisisi na ba siya, kung nagpepenitensya siya, kung nag-aayuno siya, etc. at kung nakikipagkita pa rin siya sa ibang lalaki.
  4. Kung nahihiya ka na lumapit sa kanila, mag-hire ka ng isang espiya na gagawa niyan para sa iyo. Lalayo muna tayo ng kaunti dahil may naalala ako. Kasi sa totoo lang, naranasan sa isang branch ang ganitong istilo. Gustong malaman ng management kung ano talaga ang nangyari sa naturang branch. Kumuha sila ng ilang espiya na papasok sa cubicle ng branch na iyon, na kunwari ay gagamit ng CR o kukuha ng tubig. Pero ang totoo, magmamasid sila sa kung ano ang ginagawa ng mga tao sa branch na iyon.

Self-reflection

Isa pang bagay: Kahit na hindi niya sabihin o ipakiusap sa iyo, dapat mo siyang samahan sa pagbabago sa kanyang sarili.

Isang bagay na nakikita ko na maaring gawin ng ex mo ay ang tinatawag na self-reflection.

This time, sasamahan mo siya sa bagay na ito. Ibibigay mo sa kanya ang mga tanong na binigay ko sa ibaba. Bahala ka na din kung meron ka pang idadagdag bukod sa mga nabanggit.

Dapat niyang basahin ang mga ito kung talagang seryoso siya sa sinabi niya sa iyo. Kailangan niyang tanungin ang sarili (nang paulit-ulit). At siya mismo ang sasagot sa mga tanong na iyan. Habang naghahanap siya ng mga sagot sa tanong na iyan, makikita niya kung saan siya talagang nagkamali. Palagay ko, ito na ang point na matatauhan siya, at gagawa ng paraan upang maibalik ang relasyong sinira niya.

  1. Nagkulang ba talaga ako bilang isang girlfriend at bilang isang anak?
  2. Kung hindi ako nakikinig sa mga magulang ko, naiisip ko ba na maari itong gawin sa magiging mga anak ko?
  3. Iniisip ko ba kung ano ang mangyayari sa akin kapag pumasok ako sa maling relasyon?
  4. Iniisip ko ba na may mga madadamay kapag itinuloy ko ang pagmamahalan namin?
  5. Nung time na iniwan ko ang ex ko, tama ba ang naging inasal ko sa kanya porke’t di ako maihatid at maisundo? (Ito yung sinasabi mo na “Nang naaksidente ko ang motor, sa bahay na nila ako nakatira. Tapos, nang time na iyon, doon niya po ako pinagloloko, kasi hindi ko na po siya maihatid at maisundo.”)
  6. Naiintindihan ko ba talaga ang rason kung bakit di niya ako maihatid at maisundo?
  7. Naging mature ba ako sa pakikipagrelasyon?
  8. Sa ginagawa kong ito, may respeto pa ba ako sa aking sarili?
  9. Alam ko ba na kung ano ang ginawa ko sa aking ex noon, eh puwedeng ito ang gawin sa akin?
  10. Nagsasabi ba ako ng totoo? Alam ko ba na kapag palagi akong nagsisinungaling, maaring hindi na ako paniwalaan kahit kailan?

Makakatulong ito sa kanya habang cool off kayong dalawa, at habang hindi pa siya bumabalik sa iyo.

Final Words

Wala ka nang magagawa kundi maghintay. Wala ka nang magagawa kundi ibigay ang tiwala sa kanya, kahit na kailangang bantayan kung nagsasabi siya ng totoo.

Pero hindi ito ibig sabihin eh paulit-ulit na siyang makikipaglokohan sa iyo. Sa pagkakataong ito, maghihigpit ka na sa kanya. Set a deadline. Sabihin mo sa kanya na last chance na ito para sa kanya. Pagkatapos nito, at hindi pa rin siya nagbago, saka mo na siya iwanan.

Hindi natin makokontrol ang anumang desisyon na gagawin ng babae. Maaring balikan ka niya o hindi. Pero kahit paano eh lalo mong naipakita na mahal mo siya.

Maraming salamat sa pagbabahagi ulit ng iyong problema sa site na ito. Sana nakatulong ulit ako sa iyo, kahit na sa totoo lang eh isang advice lamang ang aking ibinibigay sa iyo. Gabayan ka nawa ng Diyos sa kung anuman ang pinagdadaanan mo. Muli, maraming salamat!  😀

Love Advice No. 66

Sa pagkakataong ito, matapos nating bigyan ng payo ang e-mail sender tungkol sa kanyang problema, humingi ulit siya ng payo sa may-akda at nilinaw niya ang ilang pangyayari sa kanilang relasyon. Sige, simulan na natin siyang bigyan ng payo!


From e-mail:

Good day po. Follow-up ko lang po. Nalaman ko lang ngayon na yung boy niya na pinalit sa akin ay may asawa na at may tatlong anak, at kasal sila. Halos kalahati pa ng edad nila.

At yung showy po na tinutukoy ko po, yung minu-minuto po. Lagi naman po kaming nagde-date. Araw-araw, kasama ko siya. Hatid-sundo ko pa po lagi siya. Nang naaksidente ko ang motor, sa bahay na nila ako nakatira. Tapos, nang time na iyon, doon niya po ako pinagloloko, kasi hindi ko na po siya maihatid at maisundo.

Naaawa po ako sa kanya, kasi ginagawa lang siyang parausan ng lalaki. Dinadala siya sa mga matatamis na salita at pambobola ng lalaki. Tinanggap ko po siya ulit, kasi ayaw kong mapunta siya doon. Kaso po, ako lang naman po ang nag-eeffort. Ramdam ko na parang mahal niya pa yung lalaki. Natatakot ako, kasi baka makipagkita na naman siya doon.

Ano po ang gagawin ko? Nababaliw ako sa kaiisip. Pero sabi naman niya, ako daw ang mahal na mahal niya, kaso di naman niya pinapakita. Di naman siya gumagawa ng paraan para bumalik ang tiwala ko sa kanya. Tapos, ganoon pa rin ang ugali niya. Parang wala siyang ginawang pagkakamali. Natatakot akong pakawalan siya, kasi alam kong makikipagkita na naman siya sa lalaki. Pati magulang niya, di niya po sinusunod.

Ano po ang gagawin ko? Ayaw kong mapunta siya doon. Gusto kong mapunta naman siya sa iba – yung karapat-dapat sa kanya, yung walang asawa.

Ano po ang gagawin ko? Salamat po and God bless.

My Advice:

Humingi ka ng tulong sa mga magulang niya, kamag-anak niya, at pati na sa asawa ng lalaking iyan (kung maari).

Bakit ko ito nasabi? Kung mag-isa ka sa labang ito, mahihirapan ka na kumbinsihin siyang balikan ka. Pero kung nasa panig mo na silang lahat, siguradong titiklop ang babaeng iyan. At mukhang titiklop siya papunta sa iyo dahil na rin sa ugali niya.

Hold on

May sinabi ka dati sa akin: “Dumating ang time na may nakilala siyang iba. Sa maikling panahon at na-in love na daw siya.”

Magkakatuluyan na ba ang dalawa? Base sa sabi mo, malapit na. Pero meron kang panghahawakan.

Unang-una, tunay ang pag-ibig mo sa kanya. Kahit na nakagawa ka ng kalokohan, nagpakumbaba ka at humingi ng tawad. Nakikita ko din na talagang mahal mo siya. Kahit na kung tutuusin eh puwede mo na siyang pakawalan (kasi masaya na siya sa piling ng iba), sinisikap mo pa rin na mapabuti ang buhay niya. Gagawin mo ang lahat para mapasaiyo siya, gaya ng sinabi mo na “tinanggap ko po siya ulit.” Ayaw mo siyang mapunta sa iba na sa bandang huli ay sasaktan at paiiyakin lang siya.

Isa pa, hindi posible na magkaroon ng tunay na pag-ibig agad-agad. Bukod kasi sa patunay na anim na taon na kayong nagsasama noon, na tingin ko eh pahirapan ka makuha lang siya (kung ganoon), hindi talaga tunay ang pag-ibig ng lalaking iyan sa ex mo. Hilaw pa ang kanilang puso para sa isang tunay na pag-ibig sa isa’t isa. Sa madaling salita, nilalaro lang niya ang katawan, pagkatao, at damdamin ng ex mo.

Ibig sabihin lang nito, hindi tunay ang pag-ibig nila sa isa’t isa, gaya ng ipinagyayabang ng ex mo.

Give an example

Lalayo muna tayo nang kaunti, dahil may naalala ako. Halos relate ang sitwasyon mo sa sitwasyon ng isang taong kilala namin.

Nagsasama ang dalawa. Pareho silang may mga anak sa kani-kanilang mga asawa. Pero sige, tuloy pa rin ang kanilang relasyon. Ang palagay namin, walang ginawang hakbang ang kani-kanilang mga asawa. Pati nga sa ilang mga taong kilala nila, na alam na sila na ngang dalawa, ay walang magawa para pigilan ang ganitong relasyon. (Kung hindi magreklamo ang isang naagrabyadong asawa, palagay ko eh hindi sila kikilos.)

Hindi namin alam kung gaano na katagal silang nagsasama. Naging maganda ang samahan nilang dalawa hanggang sa nag-iba ng ugali ang babae. Naging bungangera siya, at dahil dito eh napikon ang lalaki at bigla-bigla na lang naglaho ang pag-ibig sa kanya. Nang mawala ang feelings, naghanap na siya ng ibang babae.

Lesson learned: Kung tunay ang pag-ibig nila sa isa’t isa, dapat mag-isip-isip ang babae kung pagsasalitaan nang ganoon-ganoon na lang ang kinakasama niya, lalo pa’t nasa mataas na katungkulan ang lalaki. At kung tunay ang pag-ibig sa isa’t isa, dapat sa ganoong katinding problema (na hindi naman ganoong kalala), dapat nagsikap ang lalaki na sawayin ang babae at ipaintindi sa kanya na iyon ay hindi wastong asal, sa halip na basta-basta iwanan ang babae.

Sa kasalukuyan, naghihirap na ang babae, samantalang business as usual pa rin sa side ng lalaki. Sa pagkakaalam namin, sa ngayon, hindi pa rin sila nakikipagbalikan sa kani-kanilang mga asawa.

Kinukuwento ko lang ang bagay na ito para makita mo rin kung ano ang puwedeng mangyari kapag nagkatuluyan na ang dalawa, lalo’t halos magkatulad ang experience nila sa experience mo.

Iresponsableng pag-uugali

Sa kasong ito, ipinapakita niya na wala siyang isang salita. Sabi niya na mahal ka daw niya, pero iba ang ipinakitang ugali sa iyo.

Kung ganito ang ugali niya, sabihin mo sa kanya na panindigan niya ang kanyang sinabi. Kasi dapat lang na panindigan niya ang binigay niyang mga kondisyon sa iyo, lalo pa’t kung susundin mo iyon. Kung handa ka na tuparin mo ang kondisyon niya, dapat niyang panindigan ang sinabi niya sa iyo. Kung pupuwede lang sana, pilitin mo na tuparin niya iyon.

Convince her always

Ang first step na gawin mo ay kumbinsihin siya na bumalik sa iyo. Maaring mahirap ito para sa iyo, pero ilalahad ko ang mga bagay para mapaniwala siya sa iyo. Bahala ka na kung meron kang gustong idagdag sa mga nabanggit. Sabihin mo sa kanya ang mga ito:

  1. Inaamin ko na nagkamali nga ako sa iyo. Inaamin ko na nagkulang ako sa iyo, pero wag ka naman sanang magtampo. Sana maintindihan mo rin na hindi sa lahat ng oras eh ihahatid at susunduin kita araw-araw dahil (sabihin mo sa kanya ang mga dahilan).
  2. Hindi komo nakita mo na ang lalaking iyan, eh maiinlove ka na doon agad-agad. Walang ganoon. Nahuhumaling lang siya sa iyo. Bakit? Binobola ka ng lalaking iyan, para gawin kang parausan.
  3. Please lang, makinig ka naman, kahit hindi sa akin, kundi sa mga magulang mo. Kahit na alam namin na may sarili ka nang pag-iisip, dapat mong malaman na sila pa rin ang magulang mo. Alam naman nila kung ano ang makakabuti para sa iyo.
  4. Mag-isip-isip ka nga. Maaring may puso ka nga para sa kanya, pero gamitin mo din ang utak mo kahit paminsan-minsan. Isipin mo rin na kung sige-sige ka pa rin sa relasyong iyan. Paano ang mga bata? Paano ang asawa niya? Masasaktan sila, hindi ba? Naiisip mo ba kung gaano katindi ang galit na maari nilang ibigay hindi lang sa kanilang ama, kundi mas lalo na sa iyo?
  5. Muli, ginagawa kang parausan ng lalaking iyan. Sige nga, isipin mo rin kung merong nangyari sa iyo. Sino ang nasisira? Pamilya niya, hindi ba? Ang mas malala pa, nasisira pati na rin ang sarili mo. Bakit? Binigay mo ang sarili mo sa isang lalaki na hindi ka naman talaga mahal. Kung ganoon ang ginawa mo, lalo pa’t hindi pa kayo kasal, magsisisi ka. At ano’ng mangyayari sa lalaking iyan? Gagalawin ka ulit niya, hindi dahil sa pag-ibig niya sa iyo, kundi sa pagnanasa niya sa iyo.
  6. At hindi ka ba nahihiya sa ginagawa mo? Magtira ka naman ng kaunting dignidad. Magtira ka ng kahit kaunting kahihiyan sa sarili mo. Isipin mo rin na marami silang mga kakilala. Isipin mo rin na pagchichismisan at pagchichismisan ka rin ng kahit sino. Ano ang gusto mong pakilala sa maraming tao – na ikaw ay isang malandi, at na sumisira sa pamilya niya?
  7. Mapapahiya din pati ang mga magulang mo. Iyan din sana ang naisip mo bago ka pumasok sa desisyon na iyan.

Nais ko lang ding idagdag na kumbinsihin mo siya sa pagbanggit mo sa mga katangian mo na wala sa kanya. Ano ba ang katangian mo? Wala kang asawa, mabait, masipag, matulungin, may matinding respeto sa mga babae. Ikaw ang makakasagot niyan.

Gawin din ito lagi-lagi, lalo pa’t madali tayong makalimot sa mga pangaral sa atin ng kapwa. Sa ganitong paraan unti-unting matatanto ng ex mo na matindi ang mali na kanyang ginawa. Sa ganitong paraan mauuntog siya sa katotohanan. At kung sakali, baka magpasalamat siya sa iyo dahil niligtas mo siya sa matinding kapahamakan na maari niyang sapitin.

Seek extreme measures

Pero kung hindi tatalab sa kanya ang mga pangaral mo, at sige-sige pa rin siya sa kalokohan niya, tatanungin naman kita: Ka-close mo ba ang mga magulang niya? Kung oo, magiging madali na para sa iyo na gawin ang bagay na ito:

Ipaliwanag o ipaalala sa mga magulang niya kung ano ang nangyayari sa babaeng iyan. Isama mo na rin pati mga kaibigan at kaanak niya. Kung ka-close mo din sila, mas mabuti.

Kung possible na makokontak ang asawa ng lalaking iyan, kumbinsihin mo na sumama sa kanya. Mas makakabuti din ito dahil parang ibibigay mo na ang “ebidensya” sa harap niya.

Alamin mo muna kung kailan sila magtatagpo. Saka kayo magkasundo sa kung ano ang plano na gagawin ninyong lahat. Magsama din kayo ng mga pulis o sundalo, kung maaari. Sa araw na magtatagpo sila, dapat sama-sama kayo na pupunta doon upang harapin sila.

Kapag nahuli niyo na sila sa akto, that’s the point na kailangan mong paaminin ang babae sa harap ng marami na ikaw lang ang mahal niya. No choice na lang ang babae kundi aminin niya iyon at panindigan niya iyon. Kasi, marami ang sasaksi sa inyong relasyon noon. Dahil sa ganitong proseso, tingnan natin kung paiiralin niya ang katigasan ng kanyang ulo.

Ito naman ang pinakagrabeng bagay na maari mong gawin: Kung wala pa rin silang kadala-dala, maari kang magpatulong sa isang abugado (o sa Public Attorney’s Office) tungkol sa kaso na maari mong isampa sa lalaking iyan.

Muli, gusto ko lang ipaalala na kailangan mo munang hingin ang tulong ng mga magulang at kamag-anak niya, pati na ng asawa ng lalaking iyan para gabayan ka sa kung ano ang dapat mong gawin upang ma-solve ang problema mo.

Desperado ka nga ba?

Maaring sabihin ng iba na napakadesperado mo (at na gusto mo na siyang mabawi). Maaring sabihin ng iba na “Kung mahal mo siya, dapat hayaan mo siyang lumigaya sa piling ng iba.” Pero hindi na ito applicable sa kasong ito, lalo pa’t ang layunin ng Love Advice sa site na ito ay magkaroon ng hustisya para sa iyo at sa pamilya ng lalaking iyan na maapektuhan ng kanilang kalokohan. Hindi rin puwede ang ganitong katuwiran dahil ang mas lalong kawawa ay ang babae. Lalong masasayang ang kanyang pag-ibig at ang kanyang luha.

Salamat ulit sa pagtitiwala. Dahil dito eh magkakaroon tayo ng relasyon sa isa’t isa. 😀 Gayunman, ang mga sinabi ko sa sulat na ito ay mga payo lamang. Sana nakatulong ulit ako sa iyo, at alam na alam kong matindi ang pinagdadaanan mo ngayon. Maraming salamat ulit. 😀
