Going through a breakup isn’t easy for anyone, even for your favorite celebrities. In a Magandang Buhay guesting last May 20, How To Move On In 30 Days star Maris Racal admitted that she once cried all night over a previous heartbreak.

Grabe ako umiyak. May one time, tumambay ako sa bahay ng friend ko, si Sue Ramirez, tapos nagising ako ng mga 2 am, 3 am. ‘Pag gising ko, ‘Bes, hindi ko na kaya!’ Ganoon lang ako,” she said. 

Parang on the verge of crying ka lagi,” she recounts. “Magaling ako magpigil, parang hindi ko siya i-te-text kasi ayokong magpatalo. Pero deep inside, talong-talo na ako.”

Now that Maris has moved on from her own heartache, she has some advice to offer to those still in the midst of healing. “Para sa akin, importante ang change of scenery. Parang, alis ka muna, ibang lugar talaga, kung kaya mong umalis ng one month somewhere,” she said. 


Apart from physically distancing yourself from your ex, Maris also suggested shifting to a positive mindset. “Ako talaga, masasabi ko palaban ako kapag nag-mo-move on kasi nilalabanan ko yung feelings ko. Parang, hindi, mas malakas ako sa nararamdaman kong sakit,” she added. 

Set mo lang sa mind mo na magaling ako. Matapang ako maganda ako, malakas ako, hindi ako marupok. Parang sinasabi ko yun araw-araw sa sarili ko para ma-adapt mo talaga yung confidence na fine-fake mo,” she concluded. We’re right with you there, Maris!
