Feb 17 on Rock Ed Radio >> Managing Red-letter Day Blues (episode a.k.a. "Oweno kung bigo?")

A sequel of sorts to the "Beating the Christmas Blues" episode (Dec 2007) ...this Post-Valentine special will now discuss managing our feelings of sadness.
Coming back on air is Mary Ann Eala, literature teacher of an all-girl school and Rene (the cool cool Associate Dean for Student Affairs of the more expensive school in Katipunan). We will also have the Tanchanco brothers of Kala (JP and Brian) and young college couple celebrating a year of being together, Marb and Aussy.

Dustin Butler, a Peace Corps volunteer assigned to Asipulo, Ifugao is getting married to Cheng Solomon of the Ecogov project in Nueva Vizcaya this Saturday (Feb 16) --- and voila, they will spend their first day as a married couple with us on air! (tignan mo nga naman....) Ang lakas natin sa Peace Corps... haha. (Ang Peace Corps volunteers ang pinaka-masipag humingi ng donated na libro mula sa Rock Ed, they usually spearhead starter libraries in the areas they are assigned to, so madali mag imbita sa kanila mag guest.. hehe)

We got a few emails asking us to guest more foreign interviewees because the conversation takes a different twist when the hosts are forced to speak in straight English. (haha. translation: ngawit sa ka-i-inggles....)
If, on the side, the NBN-ZTE deal is talked about, please don't blame us.

For now, give us your comments and suggestions on HOW TO MANAGE HEARTBREAK. How do YOU get over yours? How do Filipinos manage heartbreak?

Myrene is still the co-host --- Lourd will be back come March, don't worry. He's still working on his great work. :)

Masaya 'to....

"when love is real, it just won't die." ching!! pero totoo sa akin iyon. after 5 years of trying to move on, i finally realized na hindi na sya mawawala sa sistema ko. so i just try to live my life accepting that fact. masama ba yon emotionally? :)

wow sana nga magguest si dustin.. buti di bawal sa kanila makipagrelasyon sa mga tao sa community nila.. what can he say to volunteer programs na nagbabawal sa mga volunteers nila na magkaroon ng karelasyon sa mga tao in the community where they were assigned..? -grine

payo lang ha. yung mga single pa ang katayuan, cliche siguro pero imaximize niyo ang freedom and fun niyo at ienjoy lalo ang buhay. how can you love others if you do not even love yourself di ba? atsaka pag andun ka na tapos eh parang 'waaaa! ayoko na!', it's too late man [or woman]. once you enter, you can never leave... w/o breaking hearts [others or yours]. we are prone to regrets so i guess this is one way of avoiding it, don't you think so too??

5 Tips on How to Cope With Heartbreak:
* In the early stages, accept your pain. If you'd broken your leg, you'd expect it to hurt for a while and you'd manage your life around it. It's the same with emotional pain: to cope with heartbreak, let your heart be broken for a while. It will heal easier if you let nature take its course.

* Realise that healing from emotional pain is a rollercoaster ride - not a straight line. Whereas a physical injury will get steadily better day by day, emotional hurt doesn't heal like that. You get a run of good days, then WHAM! A bad one hits. Expect these, and you'll discover you can cope with the heartbreak much better.

* Don't add guilt to anger. If you've been dumped or abandoned, it's quite reasonable to expect to feel anger. (That doesn't mean get physically or emotionally abusive though - that will land you in a lot of trouble - even jail!) Anger's not a bad emotion - it's better than despair.

* Don't stay angry. Anger is a phase you'll probably go through - it's part of how to cope with the pain of heartbreak, but it isn't the only answer! It takes a lot of energy to stay angry, and the only person who'll hurt is you. Eventually, you'll get bored and exhausted with the anger - so look for signs of that and welcome them as moving on!

* Finally, recall that in Chinese the word for "crisis" is also the same as the word for "opportunity." Endings, however they come about, are also new beginnings. Each night, before going to sleep, let your mind tiptoe back through your day and find at least three good things that happened to you today. It maybe as simple as a child smiling at you, seeing a rainbow, hearing a cuckoo or some tune that you love on the radio. Write them down. If you compile these "magic moments" in a notebook that you keep by your bed, in a year you'll have a thousand great memories! And as you keep reaching for these positives, you'll find your life - including your love life - will improve, slowly at first, then faster and faster - as if by magic!

This is the best mechanism I know for how to cope with heartbreak! Remember, the greatest revenge is massive success - and when it comes to coping with heartbreak, that success is defined as your personal happiness. -trevor emdon, author

pansin ko lang ang pinoy pag kaka break up lang, bitter at sobrang hirap na hirap mag move-on... yung iba naman plastik, kunwari di affected yun pla may balak ng mag suicide. yung iba ang galing ng defense mechanism especially sa denial...

tin said...

Ganito ako pag broken-hearted:

1. nagpapagupit ako
2. hindi kumakain (pumapayat bigla! ayus)
3. TV at radio lang. walang text, walang chat, walang email.
4. trabaho, trabaho, trabaho. lang.

i try to sugarcoat things and think that there's always pleasure in pain. so during heartbreaks,mas ok maging masochista. kaya nga masarap umiyak pag broken hearted eh. haha.

Comment: What you've been looking for may not be the one you've been running after. first of all, make sure you are whole inside and der's no area in ur lyf, ur character, dat is cracked. you can only share if you are complete in a relationship. u don't nid eachother to complete yourselves but for both if u to complement each other's completeness.

pahabol ko lang sa usapan kanina dun sa mga nagjjump kgad sa bagong relationship ndi b applicable sa kanila yung "nothing is displaced unless it is replaced" nakakarelate nga pala ko sa mga nagpapagupit kasi ganun ko. dun nag uumpisa yung mga pagbabago pagkalimot.

I had a GF last january but b4 valentines we just broke up, i feel so sad but i still keep on telling her dat i still LOVE her even if she keep on saying dat it is over. i told her dat i'll never change. Last valentines she dropped by @ my pad nd we celebrate all day long he he he. After it we remain as friends. Lesson learned: dont lead berak up into anger or hatred just keep ur communication active den u can have her if she wants u.
