HINDI MAN naging madali ang taong 2013 para kay Heart Evangelista kabilang na rito ang hindi nila pagkakaunawan ng kanyang magulang who aired publicly their disagreement over her romance with Senator Francis ‘Chiz’ Escudero ay marami pa rin daw siyang ipinagpapasalamat.
“My 2013 was life-changing – majorly. It affected my whole life. It affected even my future family’s life. I’m scarred for life with what happened there. But definitely, life is not over, and I feel like it worked for me as a person. I am just totally different from who I was. I went through a rebellious phase. I’ve done stupid things but it got to the point where I felt like I wanted to live my life and I did it. Now I’ve learned to trust my instincts more because I think I know what I want. So I’m good.”
She has taken life by the reins and is learning to steer her way through it, starting with gaining back the power to decide on what projects to accept and for what reasons. Gaya na lamang ng kanyang latest gig para sa Tanduay na pinili siya bilang 2014 calendar girl. Kuwento niya, “I was very scared. I was mortified actually when I heard that they were getting me. It was something that I really needed to think about because it was outside my comfort zone and outside certain beliefs that I have. But it came at a time of my life when I needed that, that feeling of liberation, and of getting rid of certain fears, facing certain fears.”
Aminado si Heart na hindi pa rin sila nagkakaayos ng kanyang ina. “Ayoko rin madaliin because I don’t want it to end up like before. So better na it takes longer and then talagang totoo, rather than we talk tapos maging pilit lang, and it will just blow up in our faces.”
There are rumors that Heart and Sen. Chiz may get married sooner than we think. Sa isang interview ay inamin ni Heart that she sees marriage happening for her and Sen. Chiz “down the road”. Hindi nga lang niya alam kung kailan but they are moving toward that.
Maganda ang takbo ng kanilang relasyon kaya wala na raw siyang mahihiling pa. “I just want to continue living a good life, and then the blessings will continue,” she says.
Dagdag pa niya, “I don’t think there is anything material that would make me happy. How can I ask for anything when there are so many things going on in our country? It seems so selfish. All I want right now is for everyone to be happy, because I’m happy.”
Kaibigan, usap tayo muli!
