Toxic relatives

DEAR DJ Jacky G. - Jacky G. (Banat) - February 27, 2021 - 12:00am

Dear DJ Jacky G.,

Dili na ko ganahan makipag-plastikan sa akong mga toxic nga paryente mao nang maglikay ko nila.  Pero og di sad ko pakita, ako ang mahimong bati.  Asa man ko mulugar? Shen

Dear Shen,

There’s a fine line between pakikipag-plastikan and learning to get along.  Master it.  Don’t be rude but don’t be overly enthusiastic either.   Di man gud ta kapili sa atong paryente.  Nya kitang mga Pinoy, most of our families are close-knit.  Manggi-kita gyud ta.  Treat them with respect gihapon.  But stay at a safe enough distance.  Ayaw pud pakig-close sa mga dili gyud nimo feel.  Kana, plastikan na na.

Kun gusto kang ma-feature sa DDJJG, I-like akong FB fanpage ug i-private message imong problema sa www.facebook.com/djjackyg.  You can also subscribe to my YouTube channel and follow me on IG and Twitter.  Just search “DJ Jacky G.”
