by Tim Henares
Elections have come and gone but now, the officemate we browbeat for voting for the other guy still isn’t talking to us, and our cousin doesn’t want to hang out after the last time we snapped at them for questioning our electoral choices. Where do we go from here?
Well, fret not. Here are 8 ways for you to mend fences with the people you may not have seen eye to eye with during the political campaign. Now that all of it is over and done with, what’s the harm in mending the numerous burned bridges?
8. Reorganize your priorities.
Candidates come and go, but friends could very well last a lifetime.
7. If their candidate wins, congratulate them.
6. If their candidate loses, just talk to them about anything but politics.
5. If needed, address the difference of opinions and admit emotions got in the way.
4. A peace offering helps.
3. Be prepared for backlash.
Always remember: ang pride, parang underwear lang. Walang mangyayari kung hindi mo iyan ibababa.
2. Focus on the things you agree on.
1. If all else fails, move the hell on.
Also, this saves you the trouble of re-following everyone on Facebook.
