Divine Lee’s dating life has always been open to the public. In April this year, Divine and ex-boyfriend model/former Cosmo hunk Victor Basa confirmed that they were “taking a break from each other.” Since then, the two have remained mum about the real status of their relationship.
But on August 26, Divine posted a heartfelt entry on her blog, which she entitled “#Hugot Pa More.” Being her usual funny self, the businesswoman explained to her followers what really happened over the past few months and gave pretty solid breaking advice along the way. Here, our favorite points from her blog post:
1. Take time to reevaluate yourself and your relationships.
“I lost excitement in myself, and mahirap yun for a person so positive and jolly like me. When I realized that, I knew I had to find my balance. Hindi lang forever ang nawala, pati balance ko.”
2. You don’t *need* anyone to complete you.
“My happiness didn’t depend on anyone. Actually, I enjoyed my own company. That was something na hindi ko alam gawin kasi nga people person ako at ang haba ng mga relationship ko (5 years and 9 years). And you know what, when I became happy alone, I didn’t need that Tom Cruise line na “you complete me.” GURL! Complete ako at umaapaw pa. Dapat pala ganun noh? Umaapaw ka, para marami kang mabigay. Hindi yung naghahanap ka ng pupuno ng kulang. SHHHIEETT! ANG GALING KO DUN HA! HENYA! FOR THE EKONOMY!”
3. Change is really good for you.
“Invest in yourself. You need that break, do it. You need to step back, do it. Stop living the robotic routine. Find yourself, 'coz that’s the only way to can get back on track. By losing yourself a little, you will see what you are made of. Ang labo noh? But totoo.”
4. Being in a relationship means constantly making each other laugh.
“Alam nyo yung happiness is not just about the person making you happy. Hanapin nyo yung mutual kayo. Yung pareho kayong mas masaya pag pinapasaya nyo yung bawat isa. When the relationship is more about the laughter and the smiles. Coz end of the day…happiness comes first. Sino bang tumatawa ng hindi happy? Hanapin nyo yung sasakit ang tyanella nyo sa kakatawa. That person is for keeps.”
Love you, D. You give all of us so much hope. <3
