TAKOT malaos si Nadine Lustre. Nagsimulang maramdaman ng aktres ang takot na ito nung nakaranas ng pandemic ang bansa at nawalan siya ng mga trabaho.
Sa Youtube vlog ni Angie Mead King (formerly Joey Mead King) ay ipinagtapat ni Nadine kung bakit siya natatakot malaos.
“So, we were all locked in, right? And then I just came from months like a months of like stress, pressure, and all that. I wasn’t getting as much projects. So I had not much work, so I was really struggling,” kuwento ng aktres kay Angie.
Patuloy ni Nadine, “I was thinking to myself na parang sh*t, wala akong work so I might, you know, eventually just might be a ‘has been’ or you know, that kind of thing.
“During the pandemic, I had a lot of time to think about what it is that I really want and then a lot of things happened. I would have conversations with myself and I would always tell myself to just you know, ‘Take your time. There’s no rush. The world’s not going to end tomorrow.’”
Kahit may naramdamang takot ay may natutunan din naman daw siya sa pandemyang pinagdadaanan.
“One of the things that I really learned is to just be me and not look for validation from other people and to just do whatever it is that I want to do.
“If I don’t have projects, then that’s fine I’ll do something else. It’s not that my life is dependent on that,” lahad pa niya.
Nabago rin daw ang pananaw niya sa buhay dahil sa pandemya.
“For me, I believe it gave us time to look inside, eh. Kasi the last five years I’ve been like grinding lang, like every day working non-stop, always busy, no pause.
“So there’s really no time to think what it is that you want and who you really are. And a lost sight of that because you know, busy and then I was doing like different roles and I have people in my ear telling me what I should be, what I should wear, what I should do.
“Aside from that, there are people online telling me ‘dapat hindi ganyan, dapat ganito’. You know, putting me in a mold they made for me,” pahayag ni Nadine.
Hindi rin itinanggi ng dalaga na alagang naapektuhan siya ng mga sinasabi ng ibang tao sa kanya.
“It affected me so much that I lost myself. I didn’t know who I was, I didn’t know what I want. Parang I was just lost,” wika pa niya.
