The pandemic has been proven to be challenging to everyone, even if you're a celebrity. Loisa Andalio opens up about her struggles as the family breadwinner in an episode of Magandang Buhay.
"Pinaka-challenge talaga yung walang work. Bilang breadwinner, 'di ba, mahirap. Ikaw yung inaasahan ng family mo. Ikaw yung may pinaka-okay na trabaho n'un tapos biglang nawala," she revealed.
Despite of the struggles, Loisa still remains optimistic. "Sobrang hirap pero lagi kong sinasabi na 'okay lang yan. Malalampasan natin ito.' Kumbaga, pagsubok lang din talaga 'to e. Palaging dumadaan yung ganitong nangyayari sa mundo. Kailangan mo lang din magtiwala. At saka itong quarantine din nagpalapit sa atin sa Diyos. Kasi, yun na lang talaga pinanghahawakan mo," she tearfully explained.
Melai Cantiveros, one of the show's hosts, agreed and said that Loisa's sentiments echo the struggles of Filipinos. "Hindi talaga biro mawalan ng trabaho," she emphasized.
Loisa also said that she and her boyfriend Ronnie Alonte discuss the difficult situation brought about by the pandemic. They both want to remain strong for their families. "Ayaw namin sila matakot. 'Di din namin pinapakita [yung nararamdaman namin]," she tearfully explained.
"Mas pinapakita ko sa family ko na 'wala ito. Okay lang 'to. Okay lang wala akong trabaho, 'wag niyong isipin.' Pero, deep inside siyempre, hindi okay," she divulged.
Loisa is also aware of her privilege and expressed her concern for those who are financially struggling during the pandemic. She is also just thankful that her family is healthy.
