President Aquino’s X’mas wish: No more pointless criticism

President Aquino’s X’mas wish: No more pointless criticism

PNoy should have realized that when he ascent to the office of presidency, criticisms would be part and parcel of his life and position regardless whether the criticisms are pointless or valid. Needless to say, there'll even be a thin line that draws between his personality and his position. This is a sad and harsh reality that he ought to contend with.

The post that he holds now will always be subject to criticisms, thus, he must be very mindful of what he says and does. Truly, being a president is a damn if you do and damn if you don't case. No one is exempted from that even the past, present and future president dealt, deals and will deal with criticisms.

My piece of unsolicited of advice is, don't waste your time minding these criticisms. Let your handlers take them, lest you will waste your energy deflecting criticisms and defending yourself. By doing that, you will be unfair to those who brought you up to the throne. However, you might also want to consider this ultimate piece of advice, which the saying goes: "If you cannot stand the heat of the oven, get out of the kitchen. The choice is yours to make.
