We love to surround ourselves with a lot of people but the reality is, not all of them make a positive impact on our lives. There are the occasional Debbie Downers and Negative Nancys who find their ways to drain us of our own hope and outlook in life. Magandang Buhay hosts Jolina Magdangal, Karla Estrada and Melai Cantiveros had a chat with Ion Perez, Wacky Kiray and Empoy Marquez who opened up about their childhood and shared how they were able to deal with toxic people and stay happy in the face of adversities.
Even the Magandang Buhay hosts have had their fair share of bad experiences with bashers. Being the bubbly person that she is, Melai just chose to not mind all the cynicism of the world. She however stressed that her parents had already taught her to be strong at a very young age. Jolina recalled the time when she was performing on ASAP stage when she was younger, and an audience member called her out for looking like a Christmas Tree because of what she was wearing. She just ignored that one person and carried on with her performance. As for Karla, people would tell her that no man would ever take her seriously, given that she already has four children. She just went on with her life not caring about what people would say and continued on believing in herself and in God.
