“Gusto kong maging honest [I want to be honest],” she began. “There are days na hindi ako [when I’m not] okay, na paggising ko parang ang bigat ng gabi [that when I wake up, it’s like the night felt so heavy].”
“And hindi naman sa may masamang nangyari [It’s not like anything bad happened]. You just get reminded of the things that are not working so well at the moment,” she continued.
She then opened up about how her life as a celebrity has affected her friendships.
“I have some personal relationships I think can improve pa [still],” she shared. “It’s not that I have enemies. It’s more of like, it’s a very complicated life that I live in because you don’t really know who your true friends are. Or you think you do, then turns out they’re not.”
“Parang [It’s like], in the end, you don’t really know who’s got your back and nadala mo siya kahit na minsan gusto mong kalimutan [you let it affect you even though you want to forget sometimes],” she added.
When faced with these emotions and troubles, Pia revealed that she would pray to let them go.
“I realized na sa mga moments na ganito [in moments like this] I just pray. I pray na sana ma-let go ko yung feeling na yun [that hopefully I can let go of these feelings]. Sana mawala siya, sana mabura siya, [I pray that these feelings leave or disappear] and then I can continue the day happy, happy again. And that’s what I did today,” she said.
She then affirmed that not feeling your best sometimes is completely valid.
“I just want to be honest and say that I woke up not 100% today, and that’s okay. What’s important is you realize [na] alam mo ‘yung mga blessings mo [you realize your blessings], you’re grateful, and you know just how to let go,” she said.
“Gusto kong masaya ako. Gusto ko lang maging masaya [I just want to be happy],” she added.
