Actress Rica Peralejo is weighing in on what the year 2020 brought into her life, all while she cherishes the downtime between Christmas and New Year.
Peralejo enumerated the things she gained and lost before reflecting on them, as per her Instagram post yesterday, Dec. 26.
She first spoke about her fluctuating weight, which to some extent seemingly bothered her.
“I think about my weight and how I must lose all that fat. Accumulated from the very slow season of the pandemic, lost a bit before the holidays, and surging back up come Christmas time,” she said.
She then took on the subject of relationships, which, like her weight, she saw as having a few gains and loses.
“I think about the relationships, the trust, the connections I have gained and lost. They aren’t like weight to me which, despite the slowing of my metabolism due to age, still can be controlled if I just put my mind and heart to it,” she explained.
Peralejo concluded “that fats and metabolism are easier to deal with than people,” adding that these physical matters “can be gained and lost with a few tweaks here and there.”
“But people cannot be gained just like that, and some of them can be lost and never come back forever,” she stated.
Now that the year is about to close, Peralejo admits to being in “that middle zone, after Christmas and before New Year.”
“And I am both grateful and regretful. I am both sure and sorry,” she said. “I am also trying to love myself while I am trying to love others.” JB
