“Syempre na-hurt naman ako. Syempre masakit din naman yung pinagdaanan… pero you just need to accept it. Yun lang talaga iyon. Para maging okay ka,” Maja shared.
(Of course I was hurt. It was painful, what I went through...but you need to accept it. That's all you have to do. So you will be okay.)
During the press conference, Maja said she is enjoying single life and would like to devote more time to herself.
“Ngayon taong ang dami kong gustong gawin para sa akin, para sa sarili ko.
(This year, I want to do so many things for myself.)
“Syempre alam niyo naman yung huli kong relasyon hindi naman ganoon naging kadali…nadurog naman kasi ako doon…pero okay ako ngayon,” she added.
(Of course you all know my last relationship was not easy...I was really crushed by it...but I am okay now.)
Maja is grateful that she has a good support system to help her with everything in her life now.
“Siguro kasi napapaligiran ako ng mga taong mapagmahal talaga, and sa pamilya ko hindi naman kulang yung pagiintindi nila sa akin, yung pagmahahal na binibigay nila sa akin. So kung ano yung nabibigay nung pamilya ko sa akin, kung kaya ko ibigay sa iba," she said.
(I guess I'm surrounded by people who are loving and my family, they was never enough time they understood me, the love they give to me. So whatever my family gives, if I can, I'll do the same for others.) – Rappler.com
