Mayen Juico reacts to ‘tumaba ka na’ Marites comments
Mayen Juico resolves to be comfortable in her own skin despite the many comments about her appearance that she’s been getting everyday.
The Quezon City councilor outlined the many side remarks she’s been getting. Some of them are “Ang ganda mo pa rin!” to “Ang taba mo ngayon!”
“You just don’t know what you’re gonna get, everyday, each day we go out. They’re all looking at me but saying different things. Sabi nila, napaka-Pinoy ng ganitong pagbati,” the politiko said.
“I won’t lie, minsan nakaka-affect. ‘May sakit po kasi ako sa thyroid kaya tumataba… Pangit nga ba ako ngayon?’ 😅😂 My inner critic says, ‘Eh, totoo naman kasi!'”
But she knows she cannot just feel hurt.
“Instead of joining the pack and being our own toughest critic, let’s just all pledge to be kinder to ourselves and other people. Let’s all be proud of who we are and not ashamed of how someone else sees you. And, I, thank you,” she added.
