Former Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) housemate Lie Reposposa opened up about overcoming her insecurities.
Talking to Toni Gonzaga for the show I Feel U, the 17-year-old Dabawenya admitted she always compared herself to others in the past.
According to Lie, the way she thought about herself resulted in her feeling down and eventually losing her confidence.
“Kasi nga po Ma’am, parang tinanggap ko na din po sa sarili ko na parang ayoko sa sarili ko Ma’am ‘yung parang kinumpara ko po ‘yung sarili ko sa iba na ‘ah buti pa sila, ganito ganyan. Tapos ‘pag iniisip ko ‘yun, parang mas lalo lang ako nada-down. Tapos parang wala na akong confidence sarili ko,” she said.
But during the lockdown, Lie said she tried watching inspirational videos which she said made her realize she is unique in her own way.
“Tapos nu’ng nagka-lockdown po Ma’am, du’n po ako nagsimulang manood ng mga inspirational na mga videos. Like namo-motivate po ako na parang kailangan mo i-accept na parang pangit sa’yo. Kasi lahat naman tayo may iba’t-ibang unique ganu’n. Kaya du’n tayo mag-focus sa maganda sa’tin. Hindi ‘yung parang sa negative ganu’n,” she said.
Toni, who also happens to be the host of “PBB,” commended Lie for her growth as a person.
“Nakaka-proud ang maturity ni Lie. Parang nitong pandemic na ‘to, nag-grow ka as a person. Na-discover mo na ‘This is the new me’,” Toni told Lie.
