By now, you’ve probably seen Julia Barretto’s stunning photos in Mexico and Cuba. She was supposed to be on vacation for two weeks, but she cut her trip short because of homesickness.

The actress recently revealed that her trip was for “self-love, self-care, and self-discovery.” She says, “As soon as the plane took off, I cried for a while because I knew I was getting out of my comfort zone. It wasn’t easy but I knew from that moment on, I had to let go and surrender. It was time to prioritize my well-being and my own healing.

Julia thanks her mom, Marjorie Barretto, for supporting her soul-searching journey. Marjorie was anxious for her “clingy child since birth,” but she says, “As hard it is for me to let go, I know it’s for her best. My heart is so happy seeing you so free. I can almost hear you exhale.”
