Kim Chiu admitted that the fear still lingers months after the van shooting incident that almost killed her.
On her Instagram Stories, Kim shared, "When my car always stops in this certain area, it gives me that feeling that I don't understand."
Processing why she has been feeling that way, Kim shared this realization: "You will never get over a particular thing if you keep on avoiding it.”
She continued, “All you have to do is to face it and give a different perspective. Though it takes time and courage."
It can be recalled that last March, two unidentified gunmen fired shots at her van at the corner of Katipunan and CP Garcia Avenues in Diliman.
A lot of you have been texting and calling. can’t answer right now. Thank you for checking on me. Means a lot. Yes I am safe po. I’m ok and my P.A. And my driver as well. Papa Jesus protected us. I dont have an idea what really happened, mistaken identity? I guess?? Napag tripan?.. This is a bad joke. 6am on my way to taping, I was asleep inside my car then I heard several gun shots, 8 to be exact. I was shocked and ask my driver what happened, then I saw this bullet on the windshield where my head was laying “buti nakahiga ako.” Pano kung tinuloy ko magbasa ng script?... I was so scared, I dont know what to feel right now. Wala naman akong kaaway or ka atraso. Why me?. Kung sino man ang gumawa nito Diyos na ang bahala sa inyo dalawa at the end of the day inisip ko nalang walang nasaktan sa amin. God protected us. Salamat po.
"Kung sino man ang gumawa nito Diyos na ang bahala sa inyo dalawa. Sana tininignan nyo muna ang plate number bago nyo paulanan ng bala yung kotse ko but at the end of the day inisip ko nalang walang nasaktan sa amin. God protected us," the actress revealed on her Instagram last March following the incident.
Kim claimed that it was a case of mistaken identity.
In a vlog she posted that month, Kim also addressed the issue that the van shooting was staged.
“Hindi ko ilalagay ang buhay ng kahit sino para lang sa publicity, buhay ‘yun ng mga taong nag-aalaga sa akin ng ilang taon. Ilalagay ko ba ‘yung buhay nila sa delikado? Kung tutuusin tinuturing ko na silang pamilya. Isipin mo na lang ‘yung magulang mo, ‘yung asawa mo, nakasakay sa kotse, gagawin mo ba ‘yun?” she remarked.
