In an interview for Tonight with Boy Abunda in 2017, Jessy Mendiola got the chance to face the golden mirror and express her thoughts on being misunderstood.
Jessy would admit that she isn’t the type who is vocal about her feelings. She would rather keep things to herself and this probably is one of the reasons why she’s often misunderstood by the people around her.
“The girl in the mirror, she’s not verbal. Hindi niya sinasabi sa ibang tao ‘yung mga nararamdaman niya, ‘yung mga kinikimkim niya, ‘yung mga tinatago niya. Kasi mahilig siyang magtago sa sarili niya,” she said, looking at her beautiful reflection.
While she’s not open about her thoughts and feelings, the problem is they manifest on the outside. Jessy added that she doesn’t like to feign emotions on her face. What you see is what you get.
“Pero, I think kaya din ako misunderstood kasi sobrang transparent ako. Like, hindi ko nga siya sinasabi verbally but my face or my emotions nakikita siya sa mukha ko. So, open book lang talaga ‘yung mukha ko. I’m a very transparent person.”
In the same interview, Jessy has expounded on her opinion about differences. She said that we all have different traits and we all have our own triggers. Nonetheless, rest assured that she gets along with everyone.
