Mayen Juico gets comforted by VP Leni herself as she mourns 2022 loss
Mayen Juico was so heartbroken that Vice President Leni Robredo lost the presidential race, but it was Robredo herself who comforted her.
0May pinagdadaanan sa ngayon, pero dahil sabi nyo Veep @lenirobredo @bise_leni, dadaanan ko lang. Hindi tatambayan. It took a while for me to post because I was grief-stricken and heartbroken. And it was heartbreak after heartbreak, hindi matapos tapos. Hindi rin maubos ang luha,” the Quezon City councilor said, calling the 2022 polls “memorable and painful.”
“But ganyan ang tunay na nagmamahal. Wala namang nagmahal na hindi nagbigay at nasaktan. I find comfort in the words of VP last night. Habang umiiyak ako saying sorry, ang sagot niya, ‘hindi mo kasalanan.’ ‘Happy na tayo,’” she added.
After a pat on the back, Juico is all right again.
“Magpupunas ng luha, papagpagin ang sarili, titibayan ang puso. Magtatrabaho. Maghihilom,” she said.
“I promise to turn my grief into revolutionary courage.”
