After the confrontation of "Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7" boys Christian Morones and Marco Gallo, netizens took sides and fearlessly made conclusions on the two teen housemates.
Kuya, the owner of the house, talked to the two separately and fairly acknowledged their points of view.
A lot of people would say that Marco is right, that Christian is wrong, and that the latter doesn't know how to deal with his anger. But real people get mad too. However, everyone would have had a hard time looking through them because it's easier to pass judgement just by watching them.
But if we'd try to analyze their perspectives, we'd find that there's actually something to learn from the both of them and from the situation they were in inside the "PBB" house.
Here six lessons we got from Christian and Marco's argument:
1. LAHAT NG PROBLEMA, NAIDADAAN SA MAAYOS NA USAPAN.
It might be hard, and it might hurt, but problems are easier to be solved once you get to know each other's side of the story.
Marco's "hugot" from his family comes from the problems that weren't talked about, which is why when it came to his stint inside the house, he wanted to settle his issues with Christian head-on, to talk about the problem and seek for a solution.
"Kapag hindi napag-usapan kaagad, dadami nang dadami. Kagaya ng nangyari kay Christian, na hindi niya sinabi ang mga problema niya sa akin. Dumami nang dumami, hanggang sa liit lang na bagay, nag-explode siya," Marco said.
He continued, "Sa pamilya ko, 'pag may problema, hindi pinag-uusapan, for example 'pag may nangyari at lunch, while we're eating, 'yung Tatay ko, aalis na lang, Nanay ko, maghuhugas na lang. Hindi ko naman pwede sabihin usap tayo kasi anak lang ako. Pero ngayon ka-edad ko sila, and I don't want to do the same mistake of my family."
2. ALWAYS GIVE RESPECT.
Kuya has the best way of telling this to Marco. Yes, Marco's intention to fix things is right, but admit it, what he did to Christian (the water prank) was foul.
"Sumasang-ayon ako sa'yo na dapat ang lahat ng problema napag-uusapan. Ang mahalaga lang sa isang hindi pagkakaintindihan, laging may dalawang pinanggagalingan. Sa'yong pananaw Marco, maliit na bagay lamang ang ginawa mo. Pero maliit man o malaking biro, dapat manaig pa rin ang respeto mo sa iyong kapwa, dahil 'yun ang daan para magkaroon ng bukas na isipan at magkaayos ang lahat. Inaasahan ko, na matapos nito, ay matutunan mong galangin ang lahat ng pagkakaiba ninyong mga housemates."
3. HINDI LAHAT NADADAAN SA BIRO.
You can call Christian "pikon" but it doesn't erase the fact that Marco wasn't sensitive enough to notice the former's "limits."
"Sana po intindihin nya rin po sana na hindi po lahat nadadaan sa biro," Christian said to Kuya.
4. ALWAYS CHOOSE FORGIVENESS OVER ANGER.
Anger will always get you nowhere.
Kuya's relaxed tone and cool approach in talking to Christian about the issue is best because he was fair and clear with the lessons he was pointing out.
"Hindi ko kinukuha sa'yo ang karapatan Christian na mainis," Big Brother said. "Hindi ko sinasabi na walang mali si Marco. Sabi nga nila, lokohin na ang lasing 'wag lang 'yung bagong gising pero kung kaya mong magbiro, dapat kailangan mo ring tumanggap ng biro. Nakikita naman kita Christian, lalo na kapag masaya ka, magaling kang makisama sa mga housemates, masarap kang kasama. Ang laki nga ng ngiti mo. Pero kapag ikaw ay nagagalit, bad vibes. Always choose forgiveness over anger. Makikita mo ang resulta sa paligid mo at sa sarili mo."
5. MATURITY DOESN'T COME WITH AGE.
Aizan Perez is 14 and yet he understands that it's not right to argue and it's never right to hold your pride high over small issues.
Maymay Entrata's honest intention to fix things was clear without inflicting more harm.
Kristine Hammond stood up for what is right by telling it straight to Christian that he's not making any effort to fix things.
Edward Barber admitted to his own faults and told Christian to let them know every time they cross the lines because they wouldn't do it on purpose.
6. BEING TRUE DOESN'T MEAN YOU ARE BEING RIGHT.
Christian is being true to himself, which has been one of the goals of "PBB" - to see the housemate's real selves. But how come he is being criticized? Because being true is different from being good.
Good thing the teen housemates were able to settle their differences in the end.
There's no guarantee that there will be no fights, because they are still young, and even when we're older, there will always be a clash of thoughts.
But here's the thing. What separates this batch from other "PBB" teen editions is that they are not scared to speak their minds and they make their points clear. They don't get intimated easily and they don't fall in love quickly.
Maybe because this batch has a lot more to give? Their maturity level shakes the netizens to their edges. These millennials might just make up one of the notable batches after all.
