Actor, model, dancer, and basketball player Andre Paras, talking about his insecurities, said "I don't like making mistakes. I mean, of course nobody really wants to make mistakes, but when I do make mistakes, I do my best to of course correct myself and do better. That's my biggest insecurity as a person, just the mistakes, I really wanna avoid it kasi sometimes mistakes will lead to stress, problems, and as a person you don't want that in your life. Sana always positive."

"When I do make mistakes, I do my best to of course correct myself and do better."

When asked about his message for his fans, Andre said, "I would love you guys to focus on your studies, and if you wanna play a sport, if you wanna get physical, you know, be happy, I think play sports to avoid you from doing vices at a young age. Also choose your friends, because you know, real friends will stay and support you naman."

When we interviewed breakout Encantadia stars Kate Valdez and Mikee Quintos, the two opened up about their insecurities. "Ako kasi, sa ngayon 'yung skin ko. Marami na kasing mga mestiza ngayon, and medyo na-iinsecure ako na like what if mag-try akong maging maputi or something, pero-," explained Kate. Mikee cut in, saying that that's what makes her [Kate] unique. "Yeah, 'yun na nga, and 'yun na 'yung unique sa'kin kaya hindi nila pinapabago sa'kin and natutunan ko mahalin yung sarili kong kulay," finished Kate. Mikee on the other hand, explained that she doesn't tend to focus on her insecurities. "I think it's all about how your insecurities can't help you so I'm a person who believes that confidence is the key to everything. If you're confident enough, it's what makes you beautiful."

When asked about their message for their fans, especially to those who want to pursue the same career that they did, Mikee said, "Just trust in God. If it's for you, then it's gonna happen, to which Kate added "Believe in yourself, and just be kind."

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
