Most of us wont be able to understand the thinking of our idol these past few years. Many of us were bewildered why he opted to throw himself into the messy political mix, when he can just stay focus on the sport that made him rich and famous and retire with dignity intact. But everyone of us is not manny pacquiao. No one of us has put on his shoes and see the things on his point of view. All of us care about his boxing legacy. We wanted him to be the best boxer of his generation undisputedly. But does he want that? For sure it will make all of us happy but it seems we do not share the same level of happiness with our idol. Manny Pacquiao is finding his path to 'self-actualization' at the moment, while his fans is only at the level of 'esteem' in the hierarchy of needs. We will never understand his actions and decisions toward his life and career because we are in different level of 'needs'.
Give him a break. Let the man find his self-worth and personal happiness.
Why make it so complicated when the answer to this question is so simple. Manny is not as intelligent as what his fans are trying to portray him to be.
He is a puppet of his promoter which on the contrary Manny was the one who saved TR from the new rising GBP the past few years from becoming obsolete.
He got swayed into joining politics by his so called friends. The notorious Chavit Singson is his friend duh. Joined politics not as a governor or mayor to serve his
kababayan, but as a Congressman! Manny really believes that he can be a good lawmaker. He was used by the Catholic church for voting
against the RH bill. He got swayed by the fundamentalist Christians or religious groups and spent a lot of his time with them at the peak of training.
He is singing and recording songs thinking that his voice is so good to hear because he always hear praises from his fans. What the heck, he can do everything
and people can be very forgiving because he is their idol. Manny is like a small child who got spoiled by his fans. He is now a brat and think he can do
everything and get anything he wants.
