If there's anything Joshua Garcia learned from his past relationships is to no longer care about the history of his partner.
The 24-year-old actor learned this the hard way, as he revealed during the bloggers conference of the upcoming series "Viral Scandal." According to Joshua, dwelling on the past won't only affect you, but also the relationship with your partner.
“Para sa akin hindi importante ‘yun ['yung past]. Siyempre mas importante kung ano ‘yung nangyayari ngayon. Past na 'yun, eh. I’m sure 'yung babae din mismo kinalimutan na rin mismo yung past na 'yun."
While he did not mention any names, Joshua's last public relationship was with actress Julia Barretto. He was also linked to fellow "Pinoy Big Brother" alum Loisa Andalio.
"Na-experience ko kasi before na nag-care ako masyado sa past niya. Parang naka-apekto siya at the same time sa relationship namin and hindi siya maganda. So natuto lang ako. Kaya ngayon sabi ko hindi na ako papa-apekto sa past. Past na talaga 'yun. Dapat nakakalimutan na 'yun," he added.
As much as he treasures what he learned about his past relationships, Joshua also does the same with his career, especially when he becomes subject of online scrutiny.
“'Yung mga negative issues, ang dami ko ng experience [niyan], oh my God. Well, 'yung mga hindi dapat pansinin, hinandle ko by not handling at all. Wala, eh. Sayang 'yung energy ko kung i-handle ko siya, 'di ba?" said Joshua.
"Pero siyempre, 'yung magagandang viral na nangyari sa akin, trini-treasure ko 'yun. Kasi part ng journey ko 'yun as an artist and an actor. Choose your battles talaga kasi sayang 'yung energy talaga, eh. Kapag binigyan mo ng importansya 'yung mga ganun na alam mo namang hindi makakatulong sa ‘yo. Depende, depende talaga sa sitwasyon,” he explained.
Also starring Charlie Dizon, "Viral Scandal" premieres this November 15 on Kapamilya Channel, TV5, A2Z, Kapamilya Online Live, iWantTFC, and TFC IPTV.
