What will you do if someone says bad things about you?
BEWARE: This story might be depressing so if you don’t want to read it, it’s fine with me.
This Sunday there has been a terrible fight in the neighborhood. It was a very long story and my sister-in-law was the one who was involved, and of course my husband and I can’t let people just beat her. I know she can handle it by herself but of course I want to be there to support her in her battles. My sister-in-law, is a very fine woman. She graduated in Accountancy from UST and is a Certified Public Accountant, she is a very intelligent woman. I usually go to her for some advices, so I know she will not easily be mad for no reason at all. Of the 3 siblings, she is the calmer and the most silent one. They said that if a silent person gets mad then it’s the worst thing to happen, yes maybe this is so true. I haven’t seen her so mad in my entire life.
To make the long story short, there had been a confrontation with my sister-in-law with the antagonist (BTW it’s their cousin, he’s a man, and a Barangay Kagawad in our area). Yes, it’s a fight with not just a neighbor but rather a relative. The confrontation gets hotter because the man is so arrogant to speak (without thinking that he’s even a public official). He yelled at my sister-in-law and because of that I got mad and shouted at him too! I am the Amazona in the family, and will not let them do that to my sister-in-law. My husband who was inside our house and just listening at us hurriedly went out and yelled at him too. This was the conversation that made my husband got mad at him:
Man to me: Wag kang magsalita, hindi kita kausap! Isa ka lang katulong dito. (don’t speak, I am not talking to you. You are just a maid here!)
My Husband: Sira Ulo ka pala e. Asawa mo nga pokpok! (b#ll shit, your wife is a prostitute!)
Man: Bakit kaya mo ko? (Why, can you beat me?) (BTW, he is a sporty man with lots of bulges in his body)
Noel: saying bad words
I am pulling Noel to back-up (well I am afraid that he might get hurt, and besides he just came from a flu last Friday). I am very angry with that man because he was the first one to raise his voice and started telling harsh things (again he’s a public official who must show humility, and be a role model to others). Honestly, I am not hurt because of what that man had said to me (being a maid) because I am proud to serve my family. I am not always wearing make-up and wearing sexy clothes but I know my husband loves me for what I am. I think my husband’s word to him is more powerful and yes it’s so true.
We had a bad day today. I know that this is bad, and God doesn’t like people fighting. We are only human, and when you’re angry you can’t help it. I hope we will get over it soon.
what ever happens in life we should always remember to live life to the fullest
