Majority Ba Ng Pinoys Walang Goals sa Buhay?!

sushihunk26sushihunk26 PEx Rookie ⭐
I kept on hearing fellow pinoys say "Kunteto na ko sa buhay ko, simpleng buhay." Does this mean a lot of them do not aspire for a better life? Yun kasi napansin ko a lot of pinoys don't strive harder and mas maganda pa gumimik kesa maghunt ng better opportunities. Much better uminom kesa iimprove ang skills.

It really affects our country, the Philippines as a whole. Marami ding nagpapamilya pero hindi naman kayang buhayin. What does simple life really mean? Yung wala ka ng pera and pampagamot man lang wala ka as a pinoy?

Or you just spend your money like there's no tomorrow.

    Unless they don’t really mean it when they say “kuntento na ako sa buhay.” It’s like SOME people who say “masaya ako na maging single.” But in reality, they’re just trying to convince you para hindi mo isipin na they feel incomplete.

    I kept thinking myself na hindi muna ako mag aasawa o magkaka anak kapag hindi pa ako stable at wala pang ipon. Ang pag asawa, hindi naman yan minamadali. The moment na mag asawa ka at jobless ka or may maliit kang income, mahihirapan ka sa buhay mo o buhayin family mo. People with ambitions hindi marunong makuntento ang mga yan. ang mga taong hindi mayaman at hindi successful, sila ang kontento na sa buhay.. Ilang beses ko na yan sinabi sa PEX many years ago na until now.

    Actually those people who are in the area of upper class and those people who are in lower class ay magkaiba ng pananaw sa buhay. ang mga nasa high class families, magpapayaman muna sila bago ikasal.. pero ang mga nasa lower class, iba din pananaw sa buhay.

    What makes you think that being in a relationship completes a person? :glee:

    Hndi din masama ang "makuntento sa buhay" esp kung all your life eh naging hardworking ka.

    Eto yung gusto kong ma-develop, yung makuntento na sa buhay. Oftentimes, palagi akong may goal or gusto ma-achieve, it stressed me out sometimes. At the end of the day, kahit ma-achieve mo yung mas magandang career, better salary, bigger house, buy all material things... stressed ka pa din naman eh. So anong point?

    Worry ko lang, hindi ba boring ang buhay pag kuntento ka na?
  • Sa akin kasi, dipende rin yan sa sa isang tao kung anong klaseng simpleng buhay ang nasa isip nya. May mga tao pa rin na ang goal ay magkaroon ng simpleng buhay kahit matalino naman at masipag i mean masaya na sila sa ganito pero maganda o maayos ang pamumuhay samantala ang iba naman mas gusto pang gumanda at sumagana ang buhay kaya nagpapayaman ng husto. Yung karamihan naman sa mga pinoy mababa ang standard ang pag iisip kuntento na sila na ito ang gnagawa at trabaho nila, painom inom, gagamit gamit ng ano mang pinag babawal na gamot etc..at FYI sa mga ganung klaseng tao pumasok sila sa pag aasawa di dahil sa mahal nila ang isa't isa kundi para lang may maipakita sila sa ibang tao na ito barako ako o ano pa man yan...ewan !!?
  • Hindi dahil "kontento sa buhay" ay "walang pangarap."

    Tandaan natin na ang kaligayahan ay nasa isip at wala sa nakamit sa buhay. Ang buhay ay lakbay at hindi patutunguan. Ang taong walang "kontento sa buhay" ay pangit ang buhay dahil hindi maligaya.

    For once, BP Pexers give correct answers, and don't fall to the usual ode to inferiority. :D

    Si tatang ang best example ng kuntento na sa buhay base sa mga posts niya. Wala masama diyan dahil na-achieve na niya malamang yung gusto niya sa buhay.

    Yung personality na pino portray ni D1ckie dito ang walang karapatang sabihin na "kuntento na siya sa buhay".

    In short, mapanghusga lang ang Pinoy. Porke't matalino nung college at nakuntento na sa simpleng buhay, sasabihin agad, "sayang naman, hindi na nagpursige", pero hindi natin alam yung tunay na dahilan.

    Yung valedictorian namin nung HS, kuntento na siya na pagiging aktibista (maayos ang ang kanyang adbokasiya, tungkol sa pagsasaayos ng environment). I saw her once sa TV, nainterview siya. I don't think she is making good money out of it but I can tell na natagpuan na niya yung passion niya.

    Sabi nga nung author ng "Start With Why", lahat ng tao ay may passion, pero hindi sa iisang bagay.

    ok lang wala masyadong pangarap sa buhay, kung simpleng buhay gusto nya, its their lives.

    kung gusto nila sa kubo tumira at humuli ng isda sa ilog, whats wrong with that.

    ang masama eh yung mamemerwisyo ka ng iba.

    magaanak ka ng sampu tapos ipagagastos mo sa gobyerno (taxpayers money) lahat ng gastusin nyo.

    itong simbahan anlakas mag paanak ng mga mahihirap as if nagpapalibre sioa ng binyag, kumpil at kasal, pati patay sinisingil nila.

    kelangan maging responsable naman sila.
  • Ang takbo ng buhay nagsisimula sa "values." Ikaw, ano ang mahalaga para sa iyo? Base rito eto ang pagsisikapan mo.

    Basta natutupad ang iyong "values" ay ayos ka. Kung hindi may problema ka at dapat mo itong ayusin.

    Pangarap o katayuan sa buhay o ano pa man ay hindi kasing halaga ng "values".

    Why settle for 8 hours of sleep? Why not 10, 11, 12 or more? Strive for greatness. *okay* :glee:

    Masama ang kulang sa tulog. Masama rin ang sobra sa tulog:
    "Too much sleep on a regular basis can increase the risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke and death according to several studies done over the years. Too much is defined as greater than nine hours."

    My ultimate goal is to have more PEx time. Unfortunately, nagiging busy nako. :lol:
  • ramblerrambler PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Squad goals - uhm...as a church we aim to bring more souls to Christ, and to glorify God in everything we do

    Relationship goals - I just want to maintain healthy relationships with family and friends..

    Kilay goals - Used to pluck my eyebrows, but I don't do it anymore :glee:

    Career goals - I'm happy where I'm at and I just want to keep this job for the next 5 years or until the rapture :D

    The same reason when some people say they feel complete without life-partner as long as they have their kids with them; some people say they feel complete as long as they have their families with them even when they’re struggling financially; some people say they feel complete because of their pets. Others feel complete when they have successful careers, able to buy all material things in life even without lovelife. So i think maybe some people feel complete being with the love of their lives even without the riches in the world because they are happy just like that.

    Being complete doesn't necessarily be with someone. It's a mindset and the reason why I started this thread is because of a simple reality check.

    It's an extreme situation when simple life means you have nothing for emergencies and no food on the table when building a family. Yes, it is a cliche but most of the people we know are experiencing this in the Philippines.

    It's sad but simplicity is mostly define by some pinoys the wrong way. It's sad and pathetic.

    I'm wondering why it even troubles you. :rolleyes:

    Because they grew up that way and surrounded with people who have the same mindset. If they get to hangout with someone who’s living a better life, i bet they would change their minds
