Elections are upon us here in the Philippines. We have young adults to grownups vying for that precious sit in the office.
You can see these people make and participate in countless advertising, marketing or anything (some make a fool of themselves) to help them improve their popularity which results in votes.
You have to make sure that the person you'll vote is worth it.
“You” not we (not including myself) because I'm not interested in politics. I know that the game is rigged. Yes, I have the right the vote, however, when you see the truth, you'll know that you’re just wasting your energy.
Anyways, since I don't want this post to sound like a conspiracy, I want to point out some critical things.
I have a question for you
Why are you vying for that seat?
Are you going to be that leader that everyone desperately needs? Are you going to be that person who’ll encourage everyone to walk with you to a path which is full of resistance and negatives that will lead to change? Are you capable of all the responsibilities that lie ahead?
Are you that person who wants a political seat just because your Ego told you? Are you that person who just wants to be in politics so that you can improve your popularity, get fame, recognition and increase your bank account? Are you vying for that seat just to enhance your resume and boast about it in the future? Are you that person who wants that seat because you want to have power?
There's a difference between those two.
I'm sure you can answer this.
If you want to change the world, you need to start within yourself. Don't tell me you want to change the world or our society yet you can't even be an organized person. What's worse is you keep saying to other people that you want to fix our current problems yet you can't even fix your own room or set your house and life in order.
If you can't even do those simple things that can improve your life. Just stop. Stop fooling yourself.
I know you'll criticize me for this. Don't worry my email is open 24/7.
To my fellow citizens,
You need to be sure who'll you vote. Just because they have the looks or popularity doesn't mean they deserve it. Vote for someone who can lead not manage. You can fix our problems too by becoming a responsible, honest human being.
