3 Ways To Be A Better Filipino

We shouldn’t leave the job of having a better nation to the government. With corruption and scandals happening around us, we as Filipinos have a bigger role to play.

Here are 3 ways to be a better Filipino:

1. Do not fall for fake news

Fake news is getting shared all around us. It’s not enough to read the headline. You need to make sure the article you are reading comes from a reliable source. Do some research and compare what different news sites mention. Fact checking is always necessary before you click the “Share” button.

2. Be more compassionate
It’s easier to be vocal on social media, but your words can impact your fellow Filipinos. Be more compassionate, and be open to the discussion. If you close yourself and remain close-minded, then nothing productive will happen. Listen to what others have to say, and let them know what you think without name-calling.

3. Respect those who disagree with your opinion
We all have different opinions, and not everyone will agree with what you have to say. If you and the other person can’t agree, then, agree to disagree.

Remember that it’s not just up to the government to give us a good life. We need to do our part to be better country.
