Heart Evangelista (in photo, with boyfriend Daniel Matsunaga) on the lessons she learned in 2011: "You can't beat yourself too much. Hindi mo puwedeng parusahan ang sarili mo with things. Because...you can never make everybody happy. You can never be perfect for everybody. So, siguro gano'n na lang...you can never be the only one and the only best. Ina-appreciate ko na lang 'yong mga taong nagmamahal sa akin.  At 'yong mga hindi nagmamahal sa akin, that's why siguro there are other artistas that they can idolize!"

"I think I'm the only one in show business my age that has had a roller-coaster life in show business.

"But, uhm...I guess nangyayari 'yon dahil may mga imperfections ka na kinu-correct ni God. 

"And He allows it to make you stronger for a bigger purpose.

"So, siguro ano siya...roller-coaster.

"But to top it all, it was still a great year. 

"I'm still blessed. Ang dami pa ring blessings. 

"And at the end of the year, God has been providing. 

"So, I feel good.

"And I would like to say I made all the right decisions. 

"Ayoko naman na mag-regret kasi ang sakit naman no'n na mag-regret ka nang mag-regret.

"So, I'd like to believe I made the right choices.

"I'd like to believe that if ever I had a situation in life na may nangyaring ganito o ganyan, I didn't mean to step on anybody. 

"I just did the right thing. Gano'n na lang."
