At the young age of 23, Kapamilya star Nadine Lustre admitted having suffered from depression after going through a lot of trials in 2017. Though the past year hasn’t been a good one for Nadine, she claimed to be grateful for being able to recover because of the love of her family and friends especially her boyfriend James Reid.
During those hard, grieving moments, the actress claimed that James had always been there to give her comfort. She added that he was among those people who had been so patient with her as she deals with the most difficult times of her life.
According to the young actress, James never showed being impatient with her. He never gets angry and he didn’t get tired of understanding her when she had mood swings.
Apparently, Nadine’s brother took his own life because of depression. The incident made Nadine really sad until she herself suffered from depression. However, she woke up one day realizing that she had to be stronger and tougher.
Nadine claimed to be able to recover from depression because of James. She added that it felt good to know that someone as loving as James had never left her side so she decided to pull herself up from being deeply sad and out of feeling miserable.
On the other hand, she shared that the support of the fans for their love team had also helped her to become happy and forget about stress. She said their fans had inspired her to rise up again from the tough times and to come out stronger.
As Nadine was able to pick up herself from depression, she then gave an advice to people suffering from the same.
“For everyone who’s going through depression, find someone who’s going to listen to you and help you go through it.”
“Kasi yun lang naman po yun, e. Kailangan lang i-share lang talaga siya sa taong pinagkakatiwalaan mo.”
“Kailangan lang kasi ilabas lang nang ilabas yung nararamdaman mo.”
“You can’t just hold it inside kasi ang ending no’n, sasabog ka talaga.”
She also gave an advice to people who knew someone with depression.
“Makinig lang po kayo kasi hindi niyo alam kung gaano kalaking tulong ang nagagawa nyo just by listening.”
Nadine and James had a successful concert last February 9 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. Going back, it was in 2016 during the “The JaDine Concert” when the two confirmed having a romantic relationship.
