- This attitude can strain relationships
A motivational speaker named Jacklord Esguerra, in a Twitter post, called out one of the Filipinos’ toxic mindsets of borrowing from a relative, friend, or associates whose incomes or businesses are doing good.
“Kay ano ka umutang, malakas kumita ‘yun. Isa sa mga toxic na mindset ng ibang tao kapag nakikitang gumaganda ang career or business mo. Kapag pinautang mo, hindi ka rin babayaran on-time kasi iniisip nila kikitain mo rin naman ‘yung inutang nila,” Esguerra’s Twitter post read.

He said it would not be right to think that just because a family member, associate or acquaintance is earning good or their businesses are experiencing a boost, it is automatically okay to borrow money from them.
“Hindi porke’t gumaganda at lumalakas ang kita ng isang tao, eh uutangan at uutangan natin palagi,” he said.
The motivational speaker also said that such relative, friend or associate are earning well because they are working hard.
They don’t just spend their earnings on whim and they save or invest to grow their income more.
“Nagsusumikap yung tao para sa pangarap niya. Kapag kumikita rin ‘yan, hindi niya ito ginagastos kung saan-saan lang, iniipon niya ‘yan para paikutin sa business o investments,” Esguerra wrote on his Twitter post.
He asked everyone not to be an obstacle to a relative, friend or associate who are doing their best to make their lives better.
“Huwag tayo maging hadlang sa pagiging maunlad ng mga taong nagsusumikap sa buhay. Mali ‘yun,” Esguerra said.
