Trust Issues

BATANGAS, Philippines — I am staying at the porch of our Batangas home and pondering life’s complexities when a family van pulls over. The window rolls down and reveals the matriarch in the passenger seat.

“We’re going to Manila,” she says. “Should we go straight?”

“No,” I reply. “If you’re Manila-bound, turn right.”

With that, the vehicle moves and goes straight.

No one trusts me anymore.


  1. It’s not an issue of trust but of “PRIDE” I guess….most people who asks for help or advice, are actually looking for confirmation of what they think or believe is right.
