    What makes Filipinos stand in the midst of difficulties?

    I cannot help thinking when I read this question that you are perhaps a Filipino yourself and are looking for some sort of ego-stroking.  All people of all nations can 'stand' in the midst of difficutlties; likewise, all people of all nations can wilt and 'fall' in the face of difficulties.   To generalize about one particular nation doesn't do it any favours.  We are all human - all of us, and all over the world.

    Back in the 1930s and up until 1945 Adolf Hitler convinced the people of Gemany - or a great majority of them, anyway - that they were the Master Race.   There is no master race.  None are more equal than others.

    I was only watching on television tonight the aftermath of what is reputed to be the world's worst typhoon and the damage is caused in the Phillipines.  Some people were stoical about it, others were complaining about their government not doing enough to help.   People vary in courage, tenancity, patience and persistence and their opposites all over the world.   The Filipinons are no different.

    If a Filipino is met with severe difficulties, then he doesn't sit down as a beggar. He remains to be standing as a proud Pinoy!
    His difficulties may be so severe that he is in need of help. This help will come automatically from his family, and if that isn't enough e.g. in cases of a catastrophe, then the whole barangay will help him, in the spirit of Bayanihan.
    On a smaller scale he will also help himselves. He will buy one package of cigarettes, and sell one stick at a time. For the profit he will buy a new package of cigarettes and some candy, when he has sold that, then he will repeat the buying/selling until he has enough money to open up a sari-sari store.
    He will use the profit from that small sari-sari store to pay for the education of one of his children (or a nephew/niece). This investment in the future, for the welfare of the whole family, is typical for the Filipino spirit.
    My words here are merely a few words about how "Filipinos stand in the midst of difficulties".

    What makes Filipinos stand in the midst of difficulties is that they are strong, educated, kind-spirited, kind-hearted, generous and resourceful. If a Filipino is faced with difficulties, he/she will do everything to get out of it. The Filipino will always find a solution to her/his problem instead of wallowing in self pity. Also the family bonding in Filipinos is so tight that if one is having difficulty, the family helps. Also Filipinos are good communicators, they speak two or more dialects and languages.
