NUMBERS


May naka-chat ako sa Tinder, tinanong niya ako kung ano’ng work ko. Sagot ko, “accountant”. Tas sabi niya, “Wow! Magaling ka pala sa numbers”.

UNMATCH. Bakit? Una, dahil hindi ako magaling sa numbers. Pangalawa, he was too quick to judge. It wasn’t even a question, it was a declarative sentence. I hate that. As much as I hate numbers.

Nowadays, people judge you by numbers. Magsabi ka kung ilang cups of rice ang kaya mong kainin, and they gonna tell you kung gaano ka katakaw.Tell them your weight, and they’ll be quick to judge your lifestyle habits. Well, I am not my weight. It is just a number and it has nothing to do with my worth as a human being.

Huwag mo akong husgahan sa kung ano ang size ng bra ko. Higit pa ako sa laki ng boobs ko.

Hindi mo masusukat ang katanyagan ko kung aalamin mo lamang ay ang tangkad ko.

Hindi mo rin malalaman kung gaano kalawak ang kaalaman ko kung ang pagbabasehan mo lamang ay ang mga grado sa transcript of record ko.

Hindi mo rin kayang alamin ang totoong value ko kung pagbabasehan mo ang kung magkano ang kinikita ko.

Huwag mong husgahan ang level of friendliness ko kung ang titingnan mo lamang ay kung ilan ang friends ko sa Facebook.

Malayo mong malaman ang self-worth ko kung ang itatanong mo ay “how many men have you slept with?” o di kaya’y “at what age did you lose your virginity?”. No. It has no effect on any other aspect of my life.

Don’t let my age be the basis kung ilang achievements sa buhay ang dapat ay nakamit ko na sa ngayon.

People of the world, I cannot be define by numbers. Higit pa ako sa pinakamalaking numero na kayang saklawin ng makitid na kukote mo.
