Para Sa Mga Taong Laging GALIT!
PARA SA MGA TAONG LAGING GALIT!!
This would guide you on how to control your emotions towards your better-half, friends, officemates and all the people around you. The rules of practicing ‘ugaling langit, ugaling kaaya-aya’ (a ‘heavenly’ demeanor is a demeanor that is captivating) :
#1 Ang naunang magalit ang may karapatang magalit. (He who gets angry first has the right to be angry.)
Pag naunahan ka na ng galit niya, tumahimik ka na lang muna. (If you are already hit by the ‘wrath’ of his anger, it’s best that you keep quiet for a while.)
#2 Walang taong nag-aaway mag-isa. (There is not one person fighting by himself.)
Pag hindi kayo sumagot o pumatol, titigil din daw ang taong nakikipag- away sa inyo. (It is said that if you do not respond or simply ignore the ‘aggressor’, he will eventually give up and leave you alone.)
#3 Ang taong galit, ‘bingi.’ (A person who is angry is deaf.)
If someone is angry, wala raw pinakikinggan (he hears nothing), so, don’t try to explain and fight back. Hindi ka niya iintindihin dahil wala siyang naririnig kundi ang sarili nya (he will not even understand you because he hears nothing but his own argument).
#4 Ang taong galit, ‘abnoy.’ (An angry person is ignorant/dense.)
Ayon sa pastor, Biblical daw ito (According to a pastor, this is biblical)… because the Lord said when He was crucified, “Father, patawarin mo sila dahil hindi nila alam ang kanilang ginagawa.” (“Father forgive them, for they know not what they’re doing.”)
Modern term for these kinds of people are abnoys, so you better not get angry, para huwag kang matawag na abnoy (so you won’t get called dense).
You should also know and realize that the persons who make your day bad are jewel, because you need them for you to mature. Hangga’t andyan daw sila at kinaiinisan mo, ibig sabihin, immature ka pa. (As long as they’re there getting on your nerves, it means that you are still immature.)
God will not take away those people; it’s for you to take away your bad feelings towards them. You’ll know na mature ka na pag dumating ‘yung time na hindi ka na naiinis sa mga taong ito (that you’ve already matured when the time comes that you’re no longer irritated by their presence), because you have learned to accept them and to have patience with them.
#5 Finally, the best part of this is to tell yourself na (that), because of this person, “I will grow mature,” and that DAHIL SA CONTRIBUTION NIYA SA MATURITY MO, KUKUNIN DIN SYA NI LORD!!! (and because of hiscontribution to your maturity, the Lord will eventually take him!!) Yay!! LOL!

I wrote the rough english translations from the Tagalog lines to give foreign readers an idea what it is we’re talking about here. What a morbid ending reading the translation in english! But this is Philippine humor, when said in Tagalog, it’s actually not as grim as it sounds! Filipino humor is not to be taken literally and as in all jokes with or without metaphors- should be taken lightly or perhaps with a slight grain of salt! 😉
