Sa kanyang 33rd birthday, hindi naiwasan ng aktres at business entrepreneur na si Kris Bernal na magkaroon ng hugot kaugnay sa pagpapakatotoo at pagiging makasalanan ng isang tao.
Sa kanyang social media post, isang matindi at matapang na mensahe para sa kanyang sarili at sa lahat ng kanyang supporters at followers kasama ng ilang litrato na kuha sa isang photo shoot kung saan binasag niya ang isang “damaging myth” sa buhay ng bawat indibidwal sa mundo.
“No one is perfect, don’t fall for this illusion. We tend to relentlessly strive toward the concept of plain black and WHITE, RIGHT and wrong, left and RIGHT,” sabi ni Kris sa kanyang caption.
“We are all human. We make mistakes. We sin. Our sins don’t make us less as a person — it humanizes us in all forms. We cannot avoid it entirely and we are all going to fall for it at times. But, the GOOD news is we can all be redeemed,” diin pa ng asawa ng chef-entrepreneur na si Perry Choi.
“Ang pinakamahalaga naman ay we all learn the difference between good and evil and experience joy, growth and become better. Strive to do GOOD! Remember, whatever word or action you send to the universe, you’ll receive it back,” dagdag niya.
Kilala rin si Kris bilang advocate ng body positivity dahil palagi na lang siyang nabibiktima ng body shamers sa social media.
“Let me talk about the things that I value – societal beauty standards. Do you hate your body or do you hate the social meaning given to your body that has resulted in people treating you in a harmful way?”
“No, I’m not ugly. I’m just not the beauty standard! Body shaming – fat and skinny shaming – social media has brought it to an all-time high!
“Erase temporary societal beauty standards that play on social security, bad conscience, low self-esteem, or contribute to body pressure.
“What some of will call ‘Imperfections’ e.g. cellulites, dark armpits, wrinkles, acne, eye bags, sagging boobs, stretch marks, little fat rolls, bloated tummies, bones and veins popping – I call ‘REALITY,’” aniya pa.
“These so-called imperfections have a lot to say about our lives, experiences, they have a lot to say about all of us, incredible, powerful women who must learn to appreciate every little thing that makes us, ‘SHE,’” dagdag pa ni Kris.
