Heart Evangelista claims she used to over plan her life and map out specific goals on a timeline.
That was precisely how she approached her marriage with Sorsogon Gov. Chiz Escudero and the prospect of starting their own family. But sometimes, life throws you a curveball and things don’t unfold the way you envisioned it.
Though devastated with her miscarriage, Heart didn’t dare question God how such a thing could happen to her.
“Even if you feel like it’s for a bad reason, or find yourself asking, ‘Am I a bad person?,’ I always think that it’s for a good reason,” added the 35-year-old GMA 7 star.
Later on, doctors told her that she had suffered a type of miscarriage called vanishing twin syndrome, and that losing one of the babies could actually cause complications or pose risk to the other if the latter were to survive.
It was in acceptance she found peace. And this is how Heart chose to deal with her personal struggles from then on. “You just have to accept the things you can’t change, things that are really frustrating. You just have to go with the flow,” Heart pointed out. “There are many problems, and sometimes, you feel like they’re never-ending. But this, too, shall pass … Again, you just have to accept that it is what it is.”
