Nadine Lustre moves netizens hearts with heartfelt speech about believing in one’s self


Nadine Lustre has everyone talking about her moving speech as she accepted the Young Critics Circle Best Performer of 2018 award. 

Having bagged the award for her role as Joanne Candelaria in Antoinette Jadaone’s Never Not Love You, Lustre delivered a heartfelt speech as she received her trophy last August 16.  

Opening her speech at the event held at the University of the Philippines-Diliman’s Vargas Museum, Lustre said: “Gusto kong i-share, kagabi habang nagmamaneho po ako, iniisip ko na po kung sino yung mga gusto ko pasalamatan today. Tapos, parang bigla ko na-realize na sa lahat ng achievements na natatanggap natin, parang ang dami po nating pinapasalamatan na ibang tao, pero minsan, nakakalimutan nating pasalamatan yung sarili natin.”

The one-half of the JaDine tandem also reminded everyone while it may be hard to fall sometimes, it’s important to note that it’s just a phase. 

“Para sa lahat ng mga heartbreak na napagdaanan natin, walang ibang nagdedesisyon na mag-move on tayo kundi ang mga sarili natin. Sa mga pagkakataon tayo ay nadadapa, tayo ang nagdedesisyon na bumangon ulit. Sa mga malulupit na challenges na dumadating sa buhay natin, nalalagpasan po natin ang mga ‘yun dahil nagpapakatatag tayo at hindi nagpapatumba, gaano pa kahirap,” she said.  

She then went on to talk about loving one’s self, pointing out that in the end, you only have yourself to lean on.

“Mahalin mo ang sarili mo dahil sa mga moments na nag-iisa ka, wala kang ibang masasandalan kundi ang sarili mo. Para sa mga pagkakataong wala nang kakampi sa’yo, palagi mo kakampi ang sarili mo. Lahat ng gagawin mo sa buhay, gawin mo ng may puso at walang sinasaktang ibang tao.”

But one thing that moved her fans was how she ended her speech with a line sending message of never giving up on one’s dream no matter how hard people try to pull you down. 

“Kung meron mang mga pagkakataong walang naniniwala at bumibilib sa’yo, paniwalaan mo ang sarili mo. Hangga’t kilala mo ang sarili mo, wala kang kailangan patunayan sa ibang tao. At kung pilit ka naman nilang hahatakin pababa at babatuhin ng mga bato, huwag mo silang batuhin ng tinapay. Pulutin mo ang mga bato at gumawa ka ng palasyo,” she added.
