Angeline Quinto admits having suicidal tendencies: ‘Inaamin ko naman yun’
080215-ange_main.jpgWhen she and Vice Ganda created a buzz on social media after posting photos with the hashtag “#NoToSuicide,” Angeline Quinto admitted that it was actually a topic that they wanted to bring out into the open with the youth. “Eh kasi yun naman yung nagiging issue ngayon di ba? Lalo na sa mga kabataan. So nung time na nagkita kami ni ate Vice sa bahay niya, hindi namin maiwasang mapag-usapan yun. Kaya sabi ko gusto ko lang maging masaya ngayong gabi sabi kong ganun. Hanggang sa nag-take kami ng picture na happy lang at saka siya nagkaroon ng caption na ‘NoToSuicide,’” she shared during her launch as Platinum Karaoke's newest brand ambassador.

The 25-year-old singer admitted the issue is also very close to her heart because she also had suicidal tendencies when she was younger. “Siguro, pero dati pa yun. Inaamin ko naman yun. As in bata pa ako, siguro mga 16 years old. Medyo hindi ko alam kung paano i-handle yung mga family problems, ganyan. Hindi ba alam naman ng lahat na broken family ako? Tapos dumating sa point na parang pati yung mama Bob ko gusto nila akong ibigay sa tatay ko na parang ako hindi ko na alam kung saan ako dapat. Parang ganun yung nangyari naang gulo ng isip ko dati so inamin ko yun kay Ate Vice,” she shared.

Angeline also clarified that she has never tried to attempt taking her own life even during her most problematic moments. “Ay hindi naman. Nagdasal ako. Kasi sabi ko sa sarili ko nung panahon na yun parang feeling ko kung wala ng nakakarinig sa akin alam kong may isa pa. Si God. So sabi ko sana maging clear lahat, yung isip ko, yung puso ko na sa ganung edad nangyayari sa akin yun siguro may dahilan. Hanggang sa naging maayos lahat. Natakot talaga ako nun kasi sabi ko, 'Bakit napapasok sa isip ko ito di ba?'” she recalled.

Although she admitted having love problems can be challenging, Angeline said she knows better now. “Yung depression sa pag-ibig mahirap yun eh. Minsan ayoko na lang palakihin. Minsan kasi kapag umabot sa punto na lagpas na sa utak ko yung mga nangyayari or iniisip, baka anu-ano pang magawa ko so gusto ko balanse lahat. Ang trabaho ko, ang love life ko, lahat, family,” she added.

Now, the Platinum Karaoke celebrity endorser has learned to be more mature and handle things better. “Sa ngayon gusto ko lang na marami akong nakakausap na malapit sa akin. Kung hindi man kaibigan, yung mga taong concerned sa akin pagdating sa ganitong mga bagay,” she explained.

080215-ange_main.jpgOver the issue of recently being pulled out of the teleserye Ang Probinsyano starring Coco Martin, Angeline said was not a reason for her to be depressed again. “Ay hindi po. Hindi naman. Kasi before pa kami gumawa ng movie nun talagang naging close kami kasi nung nag-appear nga siya sa first major concert ko, after nun doon nag-tuloy tuloy. Pero wala namang depression na nangyari,” she said.

With her relationship status with singer Erik Santos still in the exclusively dating stage, Angeline said she sees no need to hurry it up. “Ayoko pa po. Eh sinasabi ko naman sa kanya yun, basta ang akin alam ko lang. Kasi ganun din siya sa akin. Kung sakaling, tinatanong niya ako kung may nag-iinvite sa akin na ibang guys, sabi ko wala naman,” she admitted.

But that doesn't mean she does not feel jealous when his name is linked to other girls, especially to his ex Rufa Mae Quinto. “Yung ka-apelyido ko? (laughs). Hindi naman. Kasi pinag-uusapan naman namin lahat yan eh. So kung may maliit na bagay lang kami na hindi napapag-iintindihan ni Erik, gusto namin na naaayos lahat yun. Kaya siguro kami ganun ka-close din eh kasi ultimo mga personal na bagay sa buhay namin alam namin. Hindi siguro mawawala sa akin yun (pagiging selosa) eh kasi kahit kanino naman ganun ako. Siguro mas lalo lang siguro kay Erik,” she admitted.
