NAGING kontrobersyal ang biglaang pagpanaw ng nakababatang kapatid na lalaki ni Nadine Lustre magdadalawang taon na ang nakalilipas. Nagbalik-tanaw ang aktres tungkol sa biglaang pagkawala ni Isaiah noong 2017. “I was completely destroyed when my brother passed away. It was super sudden. I was talking to him the day pa before he passed away. I just felt like as his big sister I was blaming myself. Actually the whole family, we were all blaming ourselves. We could have saved him. We could have done something. Or sana I nagged him a bit more to open up to me,” pagbabahagi ni Nadine.
Natuklasan ng aktres na nakaranas ng depresyon ang kapatid na posibleng dahilan ng pagpapakamatay nito. Para kay Nadine ay importante sa pamilya na palaging nagkakausap-usap at pinakikinggan ang isa’t isa. “He was really going through a lot based on what he was writing down. But he never opened up to us. I think the most important thing you can do to a person na mayroong depression is to talk to them. Just always let them know that you have their backs. Just talk to them all the time. Be a good friend or family. You have to be a good listener. There was pressure. I was really insecure. I had a lot of issues with myself. I didn’t know who I was. I was so lost,” paglalahad ng aktres.
Maging si Nadine ay aminadong nakaranas din ng depresyon noon bago pa man mawala ang kapatid. “I never said this to anyone. I was also a little bit suicidal before. Parang I can’t take it anymore. I just wanted to kill myself,” pagtatapat niya.
Samantala, malaki ang pasasalamat ng dalaga sa kasintahang si James Reid dahil malaki ang naitulong ng aktor sa kanyang pagkatao. Mula nang naging magkarelasyon ang dalawa ay maraming mga pananaw ni Nadine ang nagbago. “It’s not just because we were in love, he’s also going through things. I think kaming dalawa nagtulungan kami. He would just enlighten me and say, ‘It’s gonna be okay.’ It’s on a different level talaga. I think that’s why maybe I’m blooming because I stopped thinking about it. I stopped stressing out. Before, little thing lang po I would get really stressed,” nakangiting pahayag ni Nadine. -Reports from JCC-
