Assimilating our past mistakes and moving forward are two of the most consequential acts a person can do for himself. There are times though that we refuse to learn and we tend to overlook our own shortcomings, hence repeating our mistakes all over again. But that it not the case with some people, as they were able to overcome their trails in life and have now transmogrified to budding, versatile individuals. Magandang Buhay hosts Melai Cantiveros, Jolina Magdangal and Karla Estrada welcomed Baron Geisler, Banjo Dangalan, Mae Alfante and Jamie Salenga, who candidly spoke about how they surpassed all of the stumbling blocks in life.
Before welcoming the guests, our favorite momshies tackled on how they have changed compared to the persons that they were back then. Karla described her 16-year-old self as a person who took her work seriously, because she was the breadwinner of the family; but made sure that she enjoyed life at the same time. Now Karla described herself as, “Hardworking pa rin, bungisngis pa rin, masayahing tao at iyaking tao”. While Jolina used to buy whatever she wanted, but has now learned how to be thriftier. “Bago ko bilhin, kahit gustong-gusto ko, iniisip ko, ‘Kailangan ko ba talaga ‘to?’ ” she stated. Lastly, Melai said that she is more careful with herself now, compared to the carefree and the happy-go-lucky type of person that she was before. “Minahal ko na ang sarili ko. Takot na akong masaktan at madisgrasya. Kasi nandyan ang mga anak ko na umaasa sa akin,” she stressed.
