Heartbreak has made Kakai Bautista a wiser person.
The actress candidly related on “Tonight with Boy Abunda” yesterday, April 3, what she learned after her failed romance with Ahron Villena.
“Kailangan talaga kapag nagmahal ka, may mga sitwasyon na hindi mo dapat baguhin ‘yung sarili mo,” she said, adding that the right person would never ask you to change yourself.
She continued, “I changed most of myself, so hindi pala dapat, kasi wasak, walang natira, naubos ako. Hindi pala dapat ganun. Pero I understood na ganun [‘yung ginawa ko] kasi I love him.”
Rumors that Kakai and Ahron were together started in 2015, but things turned sour in 2016, where they had a much-publicized feud on social media.
The comedienne later revealed that she had romantic feelings for the actor, but they were never reciprocated. They patched things up November last year.
Kakai related how she reached the point of having fully moved on.
“Gumising na lang ako isang umaga wala na eh. Hindi na ako galit, hindi na masakit. Happy na ako. ‘Pag tinitingnan ko ‘yung picture niya hindi ko na siya gustong suntukin,” she said.
As for her present love life, Kakai shared that she’s dating, but has yet to find the one who will give everything to her.
“Nandun ako sa… ‘pag hindi binigay sa’yo, ‘yung itotodo talaga, ‘pag hindi ko naramdaman na ganun, bye na. Kung gugustuhin mo ako, gustuhin mo talaga. Nag-aksaya ako ng panahon sa’yo eh,” she said.
Kakai appeared in the Star Cinema films “Loving in Tandem,” “Seven Sundays,” and “The Ghost Bride” last year.
