Kim Chiu admits she has considered quitting showbiz


042613-kim_main.jpgAfter turning 23 earlier this month, Kim Chiu admitted she feels more than grateful after her continually growing success after seven years in show business. The Ina, Kapatid, Anak star said that despite all her blessings, she doesn't consider her life perfect. “Hindi ko naman sinasabi na ganun ka-kumpleto buhay ko pero masaya ako sa kung ano ang meron ako ngayon,” she shared during her birthday party-slash-fans day held last April 21 at the Area 05 bar along Tomas Morato, Quezon City.

Kim said that if there was one secret to her success, it would have to be having a genuine love for the things that are important to her. “Siguro yung secret is yung mahalin mo lang yung trabaho mo and mahalin mo yung taong nagmamahal sa ‘yo. Yun lang yun eh. Hindi ko inexpect na ganito mangyayari sa akin after PBB (Pinoy Big Brother), hindi naman talaga pero sinusubukan ko na maging ganito pa rin siya habang tumatagal kasi sayang din pag nawala ito. Thankful ako na nangyari yung Pinoy Big Brother na yun kasi kundi dahil sa bahay na yun wala naman ako dito eh,” she admitted.

The pretty chinita said that she has definitely matured after facing the many personal and professional challenges in her life. “Ang nagpatatag sa akin siguro yung mga experience na nararanasan ko, yung mga nangyayari sa akin sa showbiz at sa personal kong buhay. Yun yun eh. Yung yung mga tumuturo sa akin, mga life-learning experiences yung mga nangyari sa buhay ko,” she added.

When asked if there ever came a time when she considered quitting showbiz for good, Kim did not hesitate to admit that the thought did cross her mind. “May time na oo pero hindi eh, gusto ko ito eh. Parang gusto ko yung ginagawa ko and parang trabaho ito na bubuhay sa pamilya ko, parang ganun,” she admitted. To help her get through problems, Kim said she has always believed in the power of prayer. “Galing yung lakas ko siguro sa prayers ko, sa pamilya ko and sa tiwala ko sa sarili ko.

Now, Kim said she has learned to build more confidence in her decisions and not to rely too much on others. “Siguro dahil nasa showbiz ka kasi wala ka ng ibang pagkakatiwalaan kundi ang sarili mo eh. At saka sarili mo yung dala mo dito kaya marami kang iisipin para sa sarili mo,” she admitted.
