SENSE OF OWNERSHIP

What will you do if  you have a board mate or a room mates that is totally untidy and insensitive? Would you tell him/her that you are affected and already pissed off with his/her attitude? . I have ask this question because it bothers me to see my room mates on their being insensitive and selfish . Maybe they are missing my sharp tongue as I use to be with them before. But as we knew each other, I  became nice and  I stop reminding them the house rules,  As I thought they are  already grown up and  are able to do their responsibility just as they decided to live on their  own. But maybe I was wrong , I could not count in my hands anymore how often they missed to do their part to maintain the apartment clean as a courtesy to others. When someone broke a glass , no one would admit who did it and many more incidents to mention.  Maybe it was the ghost who broke it.  They love to use my things that I allow them to use, but  they will not put an extra care over those things. I hate it because they don't have this sense of ownership. And  because I promise myself I would never be tough to them I keep my calm, but with what I am seeing right now, I need to be strict again and remind them over and over again, until it stick on their minds. I just hope I could communicate it with them loud and clear without being sarcastic, because being nice to those people whom I think are so deeply insensitive is one of  my  biggest struggle.goodness!

There is nothing wrong with being honest but at the same time we must be courteous giving the other persons the respect that they deserved. The problem with us Asians is that we are very reticent to express our true feelings because we are overly sensitive. Western people do express themselves openly and are not unduly hurt when told about their faults. After the outbursts of emotions, they become friends again. But we are Filipinos and very sensitive. But that should not stop us to become honest. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.
