     I have talked to many Oversees Filipino workers or those who have gone working outside the Philippines and these are their concerns when asked about the struggles they have encountered. They have different reasons for leaving the country. They have these difficult situations as well for walking in unfamiliar lands. What will you do in coping up from different situations? You can share your stories and be the source of other’s encouragement and strengths. Send me your thoughts or learn from other experiences here.
