Kris Aquino reacted to a netizen's statement saying that she seems to be slowly getting irrelevant. 

On her Instagram page, the netizen said, "I hope you can still able to gain your former status madam as the country's premiere endorser. It seems like you are slowly fading into the shadow of irrelevance huhu labyu madam though. Don't get me wrong. Magpasabog ka uli madam." 

In response, Kris stressed that she has already accepted the present status of her professional stature. 

"I'm pretty chill about becoming 'irrelevant' because the price to pay fighting to stay relevant wasn't worth my health or peace of mind. So many have told me, 'You have enough (in the material sense) and my sons are in no danger of going hungry - so I was working hard because I was protecting something that now seems much less important - my ego," she said.

The host added that she is prioritizing her health right now, which should have been the case in the past. 

"I worked too many days when I should've actually been listening to my body all because of the mistaken notion that protecting work commitments meant more than prioritizing my wellness. Sorry walang 'pasabog' coming soon - I have outgrown that. It took so much prayer for me to be at peace with who I am and where I am," she stated.

Kris added that it seemed that the netizen just wanted to “upset” her.

“But graduate na ko sa ganitong klaseng pailalim na 'bullying.' I hope before you 'worry' about my professional standing, you'll ask yourself why there seems to be little of interest in your life that you're making mine your problem?" she remarked.
