Vice Ganda couldn’t help but become serious at one moment while hosting the noontime variety show It’s Showtime as he gave advice on what to do when you find yourself heartbroken.
It was after a contestant’s performance of the Whitney Houston classic on “Tawag Ng Tanghalan” that Vice began to mull over the question, first asking the contestant what she thought the answer was before offering his own thoughts.
“Ang sagot sa ‘where do broken hearts go?’ ay home. (The answer to ‘where do broken hearts go?’ is home.) You go home. Not necessarily in your house but you go home. You go wherever you feel home. You go with your friends. You go with your family,” he said.
“Kung saan may tatanggap sa’yo at aalalayan ka. Kasi ’yun ’yung konsepto ng home di ba? (Where there’s someone who will accept you and help you. Because that’s the concept of home, isn’t it?) It’s a safe place. It’s a safe feeling.”
He went on to reminisce the old days when he would always go to clubs and drink when he’s in pain, something that he does not recommend.
“Ako club. Where do broken hearts go? Club. Super clubbing ako dati, ‘no? Inom. Puyat. Harot, gano’n. Rampa with friends. Ayokong malungkot kaya lumalabas pa rin ako (I would go to clubs. Where do broken hearts go? The club. I used to always be super into clubbing before, huh? Drinking. Staying up late. Flirting, etc. Hanging out with friends. I didn’t want to be sad so I always went out),” he shared.
“Inuubos ko ‘yung oras ko. Kaya naubos din ‘yung kalusugan ko. That was very unhealthy. Kailangan balance. (I wasted all my time. That’s why my health suffered. That was very unhealthy. There needs to be a balance.)”
He also explained that pain will always be part of the healing process and that one must always go through it.
“Pag may sugat ka raw hindi lang dapat basta bina-Band Aid-an. Kailangan ginagamot siya. ‘Yung iba kasi tinatapalan lang para di makita ‘yung sugat. Hindi daw basta gumagaling ang sugat ’pag tinatapalan kasi dapat siya ginagamot at pinapahanginan para gumaling (If you have wounds, you can’t just put a Band-Aid on it. You need to let it heal. Others would just cover it up so that they can’t see the wound. But a wound won’t go away just by being kept hidden because it needs to be cured and left to breathe to get better),” he said.
