Bad Traits that should be removed from every Filipino in order to have a better society

This is Jochebed Dela Cruz or commonly known as "OBED DELA CRUZ" but you can call me "OBED D.C."

I admit that we, Filipinos are people with good values. We still have morality and goodness but there are bad traits that other Filipinos have.

The bad traits are:

Maņana Habit
Crab mentality
False witness
Negative minded
Angered easily

These bad traits I have found from history books, internet, and my opinion. These bad traits should not exist but should be eliminated.

I know it's a hard job to erase these traits from us today but if we will see the cause and the prize that if we will eliminate these bad traits, there will be a better Philipine society.

We are a rich nation. We have lots of natural resources. Our skills are known to the world but there is a negative international image about us and that should be erased.

I still see hope for our nation because positive possibilities are everlasting and we should be what winners are.

We should improve our character, attitude, personality, and concept of life.

There's a purpose. There's a reason.

I always believe in the positivity of every Filipino...despite such negativity we,Filipinos execute distinct and extraordinary things that makes us more significantly better than any nationality. There's no way we should say that Filipinos are like this or like that 'coz mind u guys, all those you've enumerated are also commonly possessed by other nationalities...

yet, not all Filipinos are like that. 98% are. And I need to add more:

Gold diggers
Useless, prefer drinking than finding a job

PASSIVE - paying no attention to details unless threatened. And very defensive too.

This is jochebed dela cruz or obed dela cruz again.

I also want to add that we should stop cursing our nation because our words are powerful and we must think thoughts that can enhance the comfort of Philippine living. We must use our skills plus praying for our nation to be awaken from this nightmare and be cleansed from the mud.
