The web is buzzing with the news that one of the local Filipino upcoming artist, Enrique Gil, was shamed by the management of the teen show ‘Shout Out’ which airs on ABS-CBN. Most of the comments were against the show’s management. I don’t watch the show so I really cannot give a fair comment, but IF he was indeed shamed I just hope that he’s able to take it with grace and use it to his advantage.
I personally don’t believe in shaming a person, however, personally sometimes I think that it might work to help make a person better. I know somebody who shames herself on Facebook to help her stick to her diet and lose weight. I don’t know whether this is a good practice but she swears by the fact that it works for her.
Meanwhile, for myself, I don’t really shame myself to help me lose weight. However, there are many times where in I really wanted to quit Project 168 (the weight aspect of it), but every time I do so, I think about this person in my life who is really mean, he’s so mean that I think he’s the inspiration for the television film Mean Girls 2. I don’t want to be shamed by him, not to mention that he already said that I wouldn’t make it. Well, I’m not doing the weight aspect of Project 168 to prove him wrong, but, sometimes, the thought that he might shame me works for me and gives me the strength to finish what I’ve started.
