Bea Alonzo takes a break from romance, saying there are more important things in life than being in a relationship.
“Not now. ‘Wag muna ngayon,” the 32-year-old Kapamilya star said during a presscon on Wednesday for her new Star Cinema film Unbreakable with Angelica Panganiban and Richard Gutierrez. “Magpapahinga muna ako, parang di ko pa kaya.”
To make it clear though, Bea has fully recovered from her very public breakup with actor Gerald Anderson.
That period in her life is done and over with, with Bea not the least bothered nor evasive with questions that touched on the personal issue that grabbed showbiz headlines some months ago.
“Tapos na ako dun, okay na ako. Sobrang daming blessings na dumating. Parang nag 360 (degree turn). Ang dami kong dapat ipag-pasalamat,” she said.
“Na realize ko, madami palang mas importante sa buhay ko, di lang jowa.”
She’s neither entertaining love just to prove she has moved on from heartbreak. “Di naman kailangan magka-boyfriend para patunayan naka-move on ka na.”
‘Pain makes you unbreakable’
One thing is certain, the actress has learned a lot from the experience. “Gusto ko mag agree (with our director Mae Cruz-Alviar) that pain makes you unbreakable. If you are able to soar above all the difficulties in life, if you are able to get through everything that life throws at you, at lumabas ka dun ng buo, that makes you unbreakable.”
Bea believes that as long as one is alive, there will always be challenges. But she views these as God’s way to “make you more unbreakable and to make you learn more.”
She further reflected that pain shouldn’t be avoided but faced head-on.
“Sa mga pinagdaanan ko, na-realize ko na dapat di mo iniiwasan ang pain. Dapat ini-endure mo siya, dapat natuto ka, dapat di ka natatakot pag may lungkot napaparating,” she further reflected.
“Dapat harapin mo siya ng diretso and learn from it. You will become unbreakable and you will learn from it after. You just have to believe in it.”
