Alex Gonzaga turned her weaknesses into assets.
In a one-on-one video interview with fellow "Pinoy Big Brother Otso" host Bianca Gonzalez, Alex addressed one of the issues most celebrities are facing nowadays -- how to prove the haters wrong.
"Dapat hindi mo ginagawa ang isang bagay for the haters or to prove something to other people, you have to do it for yourself," Alex stressed.
She furthered, "Kapag dependent sa ibang tao 'yung happiness mo or 'yung fulfillment mo sa ginagawa mo, it will never be enough."
Addressing how she continues to deal with criticism, the vlogger-host actress revealed that she often reads out-loud all the worst comments people said about her.
"Pero 'wag mong iisipin na destructive criticisms lahat baka naman 'yung iba constructive 'yung sinasabi nila. Tingnan mo sa sarili mo kung paano ka magi-improve."
And on being compared with others, Alex shared a personal experience, "Kapag may mga haters na kinukumpara ako sa ate ko (Toni Gonzaga), I have to accept sa sarili ko na I could never be my sister. I could never achieve her achievements but I could be myself."
In the end, Alex wanted others to know that in every harsh word lies the reasons to keep growing in order to succeed.
