Sunshine Dizon says that her marital woes have made her stronger.
Sunshine Dizon remained unfazed after recently facing her husband Timothy Tan and his alleged mistress in court.
Sunshine, in an interview for Ricky Lo’s column in The Philippine Star, doesn’t consider the fate of her marriage a “mistake.”
“Hindi naman ako ang nagkamali, nagmahal ako ng totoo at tapat,” she said.
She even pointed out that she had no regrets despite everything that has happened.
“I got married at 27. All the pain and sacrifices are worth it, especially having my two beautiful babies,” said Sunshine.
What’s more is that, Sunshine claimed that she has learned to be independent. First there was her mom and after getting married, there was her husband.
“My world revolved around my husband to a point that when this thing happened there were a couple of months when I really did not know what to do,” she admitted.
Instead of wallowing in self pity, Sunshine dusted herself off after realizing “Wala na, ako na lang talaga ito. So I started to pick up the pieces and decided I will not rely on anybody but myself.”
Furthermore, Sunshine has learned to be strong “mentally, emotionally and spiritually.”
“I realized that in order for me to protect my family and ensure my kids’ welfare I have to endure this and persevere,” she explained.
Sunshine believes that her marital woes have allowed her to become “more open and closer to my children.”
“In return, I received more of their love, which really did strengthen me,” she said.
Is she still open to fall in love?
“I’m still young and I’m not closing my doors. But for now, I just want to love myself more and concentrate on my children,” she ended.
