3 thoughts on “Filipino Values and Social Norms

  1. It is sad but true, our culture is becoming a subculture. While time is passing Filipinos prefer the norms of the other country instead of Filipino norms, they see that having the norms of a foreign country is better than their own because they think it has more class and has higher standards. The only norms that you will see in Filipinos that won’t disappear is the “bahala na”, “utang na loob”, and “pakikisama” norms.

  3. Its a fact that some Filipino norms are changing as time pass by. Its because that many Filipinos prefer the culture of the other country rather than our own culture. Its a shame that we are tolerating ourselves to use the foreign norms rather than our own norms like “pakisama”, “bahala na”, “utang na loob” etc.
