Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach revealed that she has been struggling with anxiety.
The beauty queen made the revelation on Queentuhan, a web talk hosted by the country's beauty queens.
Talking to Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa on the online show, Pia remarked that she admires the work that Kylie is doing when it comes to advocating mental health.
"Again, hindi ito pambobola, pero I'm really a fan of your advocacy and what you are doing, Kylie. I've mentioned it a few times pa lang sa podcast na ito, pero I live with anxiety every day," Pia confessed.
According to the former Miss Universe, she has learned to accept it especially during this pandemic.
Good morning 🌞 Sharing this quote I found to inspire you today... "Do your thing. Do it every day. Do it unapologetically. Don’t be discouraged by criticism. You probably already know what they’re going to say. Pay no mind to the fear of failure. It’s far more valuable than success. Take ownership, take chances and have fun. And no matter what, don’t ever stop doing your thing." —Asher Roth
"I haven't been very vocal about it, but siguro during this pandemic period, parang mas tinanggap ko na lang siya, and I kind of learned how to adapt to it," she stated.
"It's (mental health) so important now and I'm sure a lot of people would be able to learn from you also. So thank you for sharing this with us," she told Kylie who shared some tips on how to take care of one's mental health in the web talk.
