‘One day at a time’: Carla Abellana offers advice to individuals going through challenges in life 


Carla Abellana was candid with her advice when she was asked to impart her wisdom for those going through a difficult time in their life, just like what she experienced months ago.  

The actress spoke freely during a recent interview with Luis Manzano for a segment on his YouTube channel.  

“Wala pa naman ako sa posisyon na to give whatever advice dun sa mga currently may mga pinagdadaanan din but I always (say) lang is basta one day at at time.  

“Wala tayong magagawa, that’s part of life. Hindi laging masaya, hindi laging tumatawa or nakangiti na whether you are alone in life or with somebody, a complete family, may times na ganun talaga,” she said.  

Carla added that in situations with uncontrollable factors, a person can only change how they respond to the challenges.  

She explained: “Things happened and wala tayo magagawa kundi tanggapin yun. There are certain things or people that we cannot change. Siguro, yung how you react to it na lang.” 

The 36-year-old encouraged her fans not to give up during those moments in life.  

“One day at a time at ‘wag mong iisiping mag-isa ka,” she stressed.  

It was in June when Carla confirmed her separation with her husband Tom Rodriguez when she responded to a netizen’s unsolicited advice on her personal life.  

“Ang taong lubos na nasaktan hirap pong pigilang hindi ilabas ang galit sa anumang paraan. I was disrespected. I was betrayed. I was lied to. I was used. I was shamed. I was made to look so stupid,” she said.
