Filipinos Concerns Today

Most Filipinos are talented and hardworking and are most likely to succeed given the opportunities to do so. However, with the scarcity of opportunities, most are stuck in jobs that pay the bills. With the current economic status, the increasing number of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) shows that the number one basis of finding a job is to earn money not anymore to find a fulfilling career which nurtures and develops skills/talents. Practicing the career we are passionate about/good at or that will nurture our talents have become a luxury and is enjoyed mostly by the ones who can afford it or are just lucky. Sadly, I belong to the greater number of Filipinos who have to work hard and sometimes get burn outs because we had to perform tasks/jobs that we don't actually like but are forced because we need to earn to pay the bills.
