Even if they came from failed relationships, happy memories are worth holding on to. This is one of the lessons Gerald Anderson learned about love.
For him, there is no reason for one to feel bitter towards and lose respect to an ex. In his “I Feel U” interview, the Kapamilya star shared his thoughts why.
“Maraming ups and downs. Despite maraming failures, ‘yung respeto ko sa nagiging relationships ko will always be there. Hindi ko pa rin makuhang magsabi ng masama or hindi maganda against that person na meron akong special relationship before. Respeto ko andon pa din, at the end of the day hindi dapat mawawala ‘yan. Never forget happy moments n’yo, kasi ngumiti rin kayo at madami rin kayong nagawang masasayang bagay,” he pondered.
He may have had failed romances, but with his current one, Gerald sure does feel like a winner.
Talking about how his girlfriend Julia Barretto makes him happy, he said, “Ibang joy and ibang inspiration, hindi ko din ma-explain, eh. Parang nabibigyan ako ng panibagong motivation, ‘di ko alam kung kasama na din edad ko kasi 32 [years old] na ako.”
Gerald added that his relationship with the 24-year-old actress is just what he needs to keep him going despite all the challenges.
“I think ‘yun ang pinaka-importante sa trabaho natin, you have to have outside word outside showbiz, ‘yan din dahilan kung bakit kaya ko pa at gusto ko pa.” He continued, “Release, let go, recharge. Kung ipapa consume mo sarili natin sa mundo, mahirap mahirap.”
He affirmed that their love is truly “unconditional” and that, “Talagang alam kong nandiyan siya lagi on my side. So, parang kung ano ‘yung binibigay niya sakin, gusto ko i-time stamp pa ‘yun. Kung barko ako, siya nagbibigay ng power and fuel para tumuloy dito sa buhay.”
“Maraming waves na darating pero dapat tuloy tuloy,” said Gerald.
Watch out for his full interview on “I Feel U” together with his “Init sa Magdamag” co-stars Yam Concepcion and JM de Guzman on Star Cinema’s YouTube channel and Facebook page this Sunday, April 25, at 9:30am and 5pm.
