False charity

PERHAPS it is a by-product of the new illiteracy that many have taken newspapers for granted or don’t read them at all. In the Philippines, we have a term for the new role of newspapers – they are pambalot ng tinapa.

Sad, isn’t it?

Worse, some people think of newspapers as junk. They don’t read them. They turn them over to the junk shop – for a profit.

Strictly a family affair

DO YOU find yourself needing the approval of others to feel good about yourself? Do you tend to avoid or ignore responsibilities? Do you find it difficult to express your feelings? Do you find yourself waiting for disaster to strike even when things are going well in your life? Do you find it difficult to trust others?

If you answer yes to all of those questions, you are probably displaying the effects of living in a dysfunctional family and may want to consider seeking some help.
