Kahapon, May 21, ang 26th birthday ng aktor Diego Loyzaga.
Naglabas si Diego ng saloobin tungkol sa bagong yugto ng buhay niya sa pamamagitan ng kanyang Twitter account.
Pero napansin ng netizens na nakabasa sa mga tweet ng lead actor ng Encounter ng TV5 ang hindi nito pagbanggit sa pangalan ng kanyang ama na si Cesar Montano.
Mensahe ni Diego (published as is): “26.... what can I say. When I was 20, I remember thinking that 26 was so so far away that I shouldn’t even worry about it. Feels like that was just yesterday and now I’m here.. 4 years away from 30. I know that’s gonna come even faster.
“I can definitely say I got to live the earlier part of my 20’s to the max and got to experience things that not everybody does. No regrets... okay maybe one or two… or 10. Okay maybe around 100.
“But now it’s time to get serious. Focus on work. Focus on my career.
“Focus on where I wanna go and who I wanna be. Make up for time that I lost. Start building the foundation that one day soon I’ll be sharing with, with my own family.
“Making it this far, I would have never made it on my own.”
Isa-isang pinasalamatan ni Diego ang mga taong sinuportahan siya at nagpakita ng pagmamahal sa kanya sa panahong dumaan siya sa mga pagsubok.
Ang pasasalamat ni Diego sa mga taong nagmamahal sa kanya at minamahal niya ang dahilan para mapuna ng netizens na hindi kasali sa listahan si Cesar.
“Every single person who helped me through every single struggle that I went through, I owe it to you.
“Numero uno, my mom Teresa Loyzaga. My kuyas from Bridges of Hope [isang rehabilitation center]. My Tita Bong Loyzaga, my cousins, Tita Shine [Sunshine Cruz] and my sisters. Everyone close to me.”
Higit sa lahat, hindi nakaligtaan ni Diego na magpasalamat sa Diyos na nagbigay ng kasagutan ngayon sa lahat ng mga ipinagdasal niya noong 2018, ang taon na nagpasya siyang pansamantalang talikuran ang kanyang acting career.
Binanggit din ni Diego ang kanyang girlfriend na si Barbie Imperial.
Saad niya, “And most especially, God. I was at a point back then that I didn’t know what I wanted to do or how to do it anymore. I was in a pit that I didn’t know how to get out of.
“But every single prayer I prayed for back in 2018 are all slowly being answered now. You are one of them Barbie Imperial.
“I know that the years to come are gonna be so much better having these people by my side. So it definitely is a happy birthday to me.”
