ABS-CBN actress Beauty Gonzalez got emotional as she recalled her battle with anorexia during the first few months of the afternoon drama series Kadenang Ginto where she plays the role of Romina.
Tearing up, Beauty told the press on Wednesday, January 29, "When I started the show, I was anorexic. I was [a] hundred pounds. I'm the healthiest I've been now in my life.
"Pero sa totoo lang, this is the best I am right now."
Beauty later said, "It's a blessing to be alive right now and to be healthy. I'm happy to be here and healthy."
It seems though that Beauty has learned to overcome her inner struggles by developing a positive outlook and focusing more on herself.
In an Instagram post on January 27, she wrote, "Happiness is not having what you want, It's actually wanting what you have. [emoji] Wise words right? But easier said than done. Why are we our own worst critic? Why are we never satisfied?
"Maybe the answers are outside ourselves. Maybe we should view ourselves the way the people who love us do. Focus on the good then run with it.
"The opinion of one person who truly cares for you is surely worth more than those of a million strangers. [heart emoji] Baby steps, baby steps. We'll get there."
