Jessy Mendiola revealed that breaking up for the second time with ex JM De Guzman was definitely not an easy one.
“It's traumatic,” she tells PEP.ph.
The Kapamilya actress opened up about moving on from her ex-lover, saying, “You know, you move on one step at a time. For me, I'm slowly getting there. It's helping na may ganito, may work ka o may napapasaya ka, may mga kaibigan ka and your family. Of course, you have to believe in yourself to love again.”
Jessy is currently single and denies dating her You’re My Home co-star JC De Vera in spite of their onscreen chemistry. Now, she’s loving every bit of self-discovery and having time to finally take care of herself.
In the recent months, Jessy’s IG has been filled with snaps of her various beach trips—having discovered a new-found love for the water. She says, “Parang ang dami kong na-discover sa sarili ko ngayon. Parang napamahal ako sa scuba diving o kaya ang hilig ko pala sa dagat o kaya ko palang mag-kayak mag-isa or snorkeling.
“Siyempre, if you come from that point in your life, na sobrang low mo, biglang darating yung maa-appreciate mo yung unti-unti kang makakabangon mag-isa, kasi nahahanap mo ulit ang sarili mo.”
And her takeaway from her traumatic split?
“I could say now that I know myself better,” she says.
