Catriona Gray: “No one becomes perfect and there is never a stage in life where you have no worries, no nothing.”

Maging si Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray ay nakararanas ng kalungkutan at mga pagsubok.

Ito ang nais ipaabot ng 25-anyos na beauty queen sa kanyang Instagram post noong July 29.

Naintriga ang netizens sa nilalaman ng post ni Catriona, kung saan inamin niyang may pinagdadaanan siya.

Narito ang bahagi ng kanyang post: “It’s been a really challenging last couple of weeks, I’ve felt really low in my spirit.

“I just wanted to write this post to share that low moments happen to all of us.”

CATRIONA EXPLAINS HER POST ABOUT FEELING LOW

Gusto raw ipaalam ng reigning Miss Universe na siya man ay dumadaan sa mga pagsubok, kagaya ng ibang tao.

“I wanted to share that with people, because this is me, I’m not a perfect Barbie that doesn’t go through any of life’s trial.

“But I just wanted to share that to empower people because, you know, it’s okay not to feel okay,” paliwanag ni Catriona sa YouTube video ng News5 reporter na si MJ Marfori.

Nauunawaan daw niya kung marami ang nag-alala sa kanya.

“I think it was also because I don’t usually share that type of thing on social media.

“But honestly, I just wanted to prove that no matter where you are in life, no matter what success you achieve, there will always be moments of doubt, challenges that you need to overcome.

“No one becomes perfect and there is never a stage in life where you have no worries, no nothing.”

Si Catriona ay madalas mabiktima ng body-shaming kahit bago pa man siya koronahang Miss Universe.

Kamakailan lang ay naging biktima ng body-shaming si Catriona nang tawagin siyang “fat” ng Thai beauty queen na si Coco Arayha Suparurk.

Pero gamit ang social media, ilang beses na ring in-address at kinondena ni Catriona ang body-shaming na kanyang nararanasan.

CATRIONA ON VICTIM-SHAMING

Nagsalita rin si Catriona sa recent post niya tungkol sa Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity and Expression Bill o SOGIE Bill.

Layunin ang panukalang batas na masolusyunan ang diskriminasyon sa mga miyembro ng lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community.

Ang nag-udyok sa post ni Catriona ay ang sinapit ng trans woman na si Gretchen Custodio Diez na inaresto at pinosasan sa isang mall sa Quezon City dahil sa kagustuhang gamitin ang restroom para sa mga babae.

“It’s an ongoing conversation that we really need to be having,” ani Catriona hinggil sa SOGIE Bill.

“There is no one-all solution, especially when it comes to the restroom situation.

“But my point in that whole issue was that victim-shaming is not right and no one should be subjected to that time of treatment, to that type of shame, to that type of discrimination.

“And that comes from being able to educate each other on how to properly treat each other first off, with respect.”
