Blogging, You and Me

When I heard of blogging, it made me wonder what it is. What I’ve learned in my short searches that it can make you some money and all you have to do is write. So I say, why not try it. Then I entered WordPress, Blogger and any platform that may pop-up when I wrote blogging. Upon making, I realized that you have to have money to have a private site and I don’t have some so I choose the fee free ones.

I got excited but I don’t know what to write so I said to myself, “write everything under the sun” and I did. Few months and a year has passed I checked the views and the people reading my post are only a few. I deleted the account and made this.

I intend to have specialized niches for my blog depending on the topic but I can’t help myself to share my not so random thoughts to a few readers who are following me in this blog. You may not know me personally but you appreciated my posts and follow me so thank you for your support. This is for you. For the likes, visits and views of my blog I really appreciate it. May we continue this for the years to come and hopefully we’ll grow together.

“I support drugs”

In the Philippines, illegal drug issues are big news which lasted for about three days or so. Drug lords and their protectors were revealed and the public has mixed comments about it.

But the drugs I’m about to tell you are not prohibited rather they’re yet to be discovered and I support the researches for drugs to rare diseases.

Yes, because of the rarity of the disease entity and the small market for these drugs, some companies didn’t want to invest on drug development of these.

Granting that these companies can make a cure or alleviate some symptoms of rare diseases, it doesn’t mean that it can be affordable to all especially to people who barely meet their daily needs. It is a lost battle in a winning game for people to needs it.

So what will we do about it?

We have to promote researches on rare diseases. If it is possible for the government to fund these innovations. And if development will be successful it will be affordable and even subsidized by the government. I know it’s a lot to ask or recommend but it will definitely benefit the people who are responsible for paying the taxes you’re redirecting to fund researches such as this.

Rare diseases without cure yet really caught my attention after hearing the word “drugs.” I hope that not only rare diseases but also those that are common which have no effective and approved drugs yet to have readily available and affordable ones that are effective.

Illegal drugs may be the problem of the country right now but let’s also remember that drugs, the ones that are sregulated and approved by the BFAD or FDA, are important too to our countrymen who has some  illnesses that need medication and attention.

Defensive Practice

Social media creates a platform for virtual communication. It can reach the different parts of the world and may be in writing, photos or videos.

Little things spread like a wildfire in social media and comments came from all over the world. These things were made into bigger issues and later produce criticism.

Criticism can either be constructive or destructive. It can make or break the confidence of other people and it affects the long term practice of the person concerned.

With the advent of phones and built-in video application, the truth now is relative. Those who were holding the video recordings appeared to be right which is why when a person knows he is being recorded or even followed they intend to be defensive.

Defensive in a way that they take unnecessary precaution even before the simple events happened. They became extra careful that often than not get on the way of his primary duties. This is now happening everywhere. It will come to a point where people will not take any risk and it can cause a thing or even a life.

Let’s not take this lightly. Let us boost the confidence of people who serves us by giving greetings or saying thank you. These words may be simple but it is powerful enough that it can lighten the heavy heart of the person who choose to give his service to his fellowmen.

Bullying in different forms

Everything started from something. It may be an experience or witnessed situation. Bullying is one of those issues that people from the  minority are  fighting against everyday.

Sad to say that despite of the laws and bills that were made yet it still exists. It presents in different forms and evolves through time and medium.

In ’90s people uses remarks and usually made some songs which is directed towards someone to irritate them. It is for fun, they say but for those who receives this, it is not.

Nowadays, with the advances in technology and the invention of internet people were given harsh remarks from others who barely knew them and in an instant it can goes viral. Some misunderstandings can’t be solved because people intend to vent out their feelings in the social media which makes the issue bigger instead of telling the person concerned face to face. People judge others through their appearance and how they present themselves. Being different sometimes give you the spotlight for others to talk about. These acts are forms of bullying in my own view.

It is evolving fast and it now covers the different medium of  media communication. People often forgot the importance of interpersonal relations where you have to face other people in the physical world instead of the virtual kind. Bullying can only be stop if everyone of us must be responsible of our actions and take consideration of others feeling because despite of our differences we still are humans and we all have emotions.

So before you talk, think. Ask yourself, “will I be hurt if someone said this to me?” And if the answer is yes, then don’t do it. Let’s hold true to the golden rule “Don’t do unto others what you don’t want others do unto you.”
