Kahit nawala sa telebisyon ay napanatili ni Kris Aquino na maging effective celebrity endorser at maging “relevant” dahil sa tulong ng digital media. Pero ito rin daw more or less ang naging dahilan para mapabayaan niya ang kanyang kalusugan.
Kuwento niya sa IG at Facebook, “I am proud of the fact that I was the first celebrity to go into digital programming because that was the only avenue open to me.
“But digital is now a very crowded field, and this quote for me is part of my TRUTH, 'you cannot heal in the same environment where you got sick” -- trying to create viable webisodes with brand partners was a shared vision with Nicko and one I gave my all to continue, in order to honor commitments.
"But there was so much about the state of my health I ignored, because I willingly paid such a high price in my desire to stay ‘relevant.’”
Bahagi ng proseso ng pagpapagaling ni Kris sa kanyang autoimmune disorders ang i-sacrifice ang kanyang kompanyang KCAP. Pero sinigurado naman niya na hindi mapapabayaan ang mga staff nito.
“My sons and I are stable enough that I can step away from work without making those who stayed loyal to me in KCAP suffer significant income losses but rather I have made sure they’ll have enough financially while exploring other job opportunities.
“Those in my home will all remain okay. Most importantly, I can take care of me, while not depriving my 2 sons. I know how blessed we are. That’s why I know apart from my ailments, I shouldn’t question nor complain,” she shared.
Sa mga susunod na linggo ay hindi na raw muna magiging aktibo sa Instagram at Facebook ang dating TV host.
“My IG feed shall be quiet. I am unsure if we have any other brand commitments for airing, but I do know I have a few endorsement shoots to do.
“I am being 100% truthful, being Kris is the only job I’ve known how to do since I was 15 years old, so the next few months of transitioning into a regular civilian will be a challenge, yet I need it in order for me to get healthy enough to not have the worst manifestations of my autoimmune disorders on such a regular basis,” lahad niya.
Para kay Kris, natutunan niya ngayong mas pahalagahan ang “ngayon” at ituring na “gift” ang bawat araw na meron siya.
“I thanked God for Christmas, New Year, my birthday, Bimb’s birthday, and kuya’s birthday we got to spend together.
All I am trying to impart is that how you live life is based on your current perception of events, priorities, and your sense of where your peace is most effortless.
“I now cherish more-those worth living and fighting for, I have stopped giving the privilege to anybody, who dares make me feel less than what I know I am, and I embrace self love and self care, because they are valuable partners that go hand in hand in order to complete the person I can still become,” pagbabahagi pa ng actress/TV host.
