Leaving Activism for good: My life and husband are my prios

Never Give Up

18010324_617900025073852_7766520870411922112_n

I was already ready to retire from my activism when something happened:

Some snakes wiggled up to my toe and blame me for someone’s disappearance.

Why am I always blamed for somebody’s inadequacy and insecurity? and now for someone’s disappearance?

There you go : personalities clash  when there is stress and some goons become snakes and termites. The true person comes out.

No wonder , I am still here, I will never give up.

The picture says it all. You are wrong again asshole!

Cheers!

No good deed goes unpunished

 

10477896_670291543089262_60140675145339196_nOn February 10, 2017, my husband  did a wonderful job removing  the snow in our block with his brand new snowblower. He does this for free, no remuneration, declined all help including gas money.

He is such a perfectionist, he tried to remove the snow  left remaining in our long driveway. Lo and behold, slipped and fell.

He is too stubborn, took a cane and still walked limping. He was in so much pain, that, we went to the ER and was sent home after a few hours. However, we were called back for a CT scan to confirm an occult fracture. It was confirmed,  long story short, he had a hip surgery to put 3 screws in. It was uneventful, he was back home after a few days and started home rehabilitation.

This is all the same as  what I am doing for the Philippines. All I want is to help propagate critical thinking and humanism/atheism since 2010.  All I got was being bullied on line, I was called nasty names and worse, ” backstabbed” several times again and again.  These pinoys do not even know how to apologize even if they were proved wrong. They defend themselves by spreading fabricated lies about me over and over again. These pinoys are pathological liars, scumbags, miserable, arrogant assholes,  mostly jobless and no pot to pee.

Truth be told, I have spent > $ 50,000 USD,  since 2010,  just doing this activism . All funds coming from my  pockets -my hard-earned money, from my own sweat, blood, and tears.

Still, nothing is good enough for these pinoys.  I am trying to make sense of all of these. But, I failed. I cannot lead them to where I want them to be. Although, humanism is growing, I am tired already. I do not want to continue this process anymore. I have given enough of myself to them. I need to take care of my husband and myself.

I am an expatriate, I will not even retire in the Philippines. It is just another tourist destination for me.  My husband and I will continue to travel around the world:  the Philippines could be forgotten soon enough, but, not my family.

Misogynist atheist assholes in the Philippines

 

995357_1284129801602130_1856641407113985545_nWould you believe some atheists are so misogynist, that they attack me personally, but,  on FB. I want to see you when I get home to the Philippines! This is my challenge. I know all of you.

No wonder, these scumbags remain poor, unable to improve themselves and have no pot to pee.

Some of them owe people money , cannot repay them , hid from them and even badmouth them on FB.

Some of them are sexual predators, that is why they were banned in HAPI.

Some were caught stealing, continue to deny it , yet cannot prove their innocence.

Some are just too arrogant to be in HAPI, were ” butthurt “,  because they were caught having Janus face.

Some are just following blindly, like a blind leading the blind.

Misogyny is supposed to be only for the religious.

I guess,  misogyny is common in pinoy mentality, a part and parcel of crab mentality , envy and jealousy. Unfortunately, I know these assholes personally. AlI can say is that, they need to seek psychological help because they cannot see a mote in their eyes.

These people lack integrity, from the get go.

Crab mentality and Gossiping

Crab mentality is very much alive. In fact, it is very common in the Philippines.

No,  it does not mean being crabby nor irritable.

Crab mentality means, people try to pull you down hoping you will not fly your lovely society. It is an act of  desperation to bring you down. It is an act of jealousy or  envy. It is an act of cowardice. 10155352_544557818995969_7366304235015782274_n

Their modus operandi is usually gossiping, a favorite past time of the jobless, poor and miserable people.

They love spreading fabricated lies without proof nor evidence

when asked about proof,  they lie some more to cover the other lies

1513171_882223061896108_3649004580523817519_n

Are you one of them? No lessons learned in the past but dramas and continuation of immaturity and bitterness.

What a pity .

The older I get, the better I am, no dramas

Oh well, the low lifes are acting up again.

Not unusual,  for we have a huge event coming pretty soon. Been there, done that. These scumbags are predictable.

Nobody talks about a nobody.  Even fools have stories to tell. and  idiots know that very well.  What a pity, still jobless and poor? You can only blame thy selves.

They just want my attention,  jealousy and envy much. All talks but all empty gestures: not even a pot to pee.

They are sorry asses because they can no longer taste my money and chocolates from the USA.  Hate Americans?  , but love our $$$.

And worse, they are no longer in my circle and not even in my league.

They want their balls stroked, but in reality they have no balls.

Using regionalism ?  what a pity : I am not even bisaya.. I was born in Nueva Ecija with Tagalog and Ilocana parents. I am just all over the world.

Victim role playing, acting like victims, they do not know, they are just actually talking about themselves: narcissist and sociopaths galore. Psychiatry is my second specialty.

Besides,  I am adept at marketing and promotions. Do you even know what are the steps in making a society work?

Any publicity is good. Look at HAPI, an international society just after one year.

Instead of learning from me,  these maggots complain and bash me.

Oh well, one cannot teach green eyed monsters, snakes and termites.

Please continue to wallow in bitterness and poverty, while I retire in luxury and  HAPI-ness.

I am finally relieved : I am now picky

A little patience goes a long, long way.

It was good that I did not drop the ball suddenly.

Planning is everything, a means to provide better things.

I am finally relieved as a chairperson, being Emeritus would be so much FUN.

I can do whatever I can to help, promote and propagate,

But, without much pressure from myself.

I am a type A – 1 personality, I like to do things yesterday and in a timely fashion.

Cannot stand procrastinators and lazy bones.

That is me.. I cannot change myself.

I did it my way.. Now show me you can do it too.

Kudos to all ! but without saying, I learned from my past experiences.

No more waste of my hard-earned money and efforts.

The right people are in order and ebullient with renewed passion.

I am very picky now, but please do not blame me.

Cheers to all!

Altruism : Is it still true? How do I love thee, HAPI

12435705_556223227860740_1246922373_n

https://hapihumanist.org/events/2016-year-review/

It has been 3 years, long enough to put a clog in my heart.

HAPI – how do I love thee? It might cost my life? and my marriage?

I must be crazy, but, is this my purpose in life?

Altruism, am I an example? or just being crazy and not thinking right.

Am I doing this for myself?  I will not even retire in the Philippines.

Truly, why do I do this activism in the Philippines?

Your guess is as good as mine.

My graceful exit : Love Conquers all

 

 

001I  have been planning for my graceful exit from my second society since September,  2016.

It is time for me to pass the torch of successful activism and advocacy  about humanism to the present  core. It is the perfect time to leave, since I have the perfect leaders who are as ebullient as I am. I wish them well to the highest degree and support the mission/vision of the society.

My husband and I enjoy going to the church that married us in 1996. Love and respect have no religious nor political affiliations.

I am very fortunate to have a husband who respects my individuality  and passion. But, of course, he wished that I stopped my advocacy few years ago.

Now is  the golden opportunity to leave while I am still alive.

I am scheduled to  leave as the Founder and Chairwoman  Emeritus of HAPI in January 2017.

I am finally free of burden and responsibility  from any organization, any society,  any job,  anyone..but, my husband.

We will be touring around the world and every 3 months, just like before.

We will be celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary in Panama Ciy, Panama,  in Central America next year.
