"There’s a time to be silent and a time to finally speak up… Eto na ‘yun time ng pagsasalita ni Ms. Carla Abellana sa #LuisListens. Emosyonal ang tell-all interview na ‘to, kahit ako parang kinurot yun puso ko that time. Thank you for trusting me and #LuckyTV, @Carla Abellana."
This is what host Luis Manzano wrote in the description box of his recent vlog featuring actress Carla Abellana.
Recall that the latter made headlines the past few months following her breakup with husband Tom Rodriguez.
There, Luis directly asked Carla if she still believe in love.
"Honestly, ang love, ang dami naman definition ng love but, yes, of course. Kung walang love, wala tayong buhay,” she answered.
“There’s family love, the love of my dogs, the love of your friends, correct, barkada... Love, definitely, oo naman. Love is all around, it definitely exists.”
How about the important lesson she learned?
“Ang pinakaimportante? Siguro itong this past year talaga ha na we will really never know kung ano mangyayari," Carla said. "We may make plans or we see everything na nandito tayo sa mundo, tayo nagpaplano, nag-asikaso, lahat. But sometimes life just hits you na hindi mo talaga alam what will happen tomorrow."
"Yun bang what you have is just today. No matter how everything is organized or laid out, there are times talaga na unpredictable ang buhay, I guess,” she added.
If anything, Carla has this realization that there are times when you have only yourself to help you.
"I'm not saying naman na lahat tayo we're alone or anything, but yun bang there are times when you can only depend on yourself, or yung sarili mo yung kailangang tutulong din sa sarili mo," she said.
