  • To note, Nadine’s brother took his own life last year because of depression

Kapamilya actress Nadine Lustre, via a PEP story, shared that James Reid’s patience and care helped her cope up with depression.

Nadine said she came across many challenges last year and that James is one of the most patient persons she had ever known.

She narrated that he does not get upset even if her mood swings are no longer normal — because of the stress and depression she experienced.

“Basta sobrang patient at saka maalaga po siya,” the actress said. [He’s very patient and caring.]

The actress gave some advice, too; to share problems with trusted people because if it is being kept inside, there comes a time it’ll burst.

Those who know somebody experiencing struggles in life, she said, should give time to listen as it gives huge help to the troubled person.

Meanwhile, James and Nadine will be having a concert on February 9 at the Araneta Coliseum, and it’s called “Revolution: The JaDine Concert.”

To note, the actress’ teenage brother took his own life in October last year due to depression. Nadine has gone through the same phase herself.

Five days after his brother’s death, she shared a social media post sharing how she struggles with depression.

“I have days where I’m just sitting in the tub, asking myself a lot of questions, confused. I felt like I was just looking in someone else’s life through a window.”

It may come as a surprise to you but I have struggled with depression way back and still am to this day. I have days where Im just sitting in the tub, asking myself a lot of questions, confused.. I felt like I was just looking in someone else's life through a window. Feeling bad cuz I am not enough and everything that I do and will do will never be enough. Its not easy. I have days when I have to put a mask on, smiling, numbing myself from negative emotions, too often I have already mastered the art of hiding it, I bet, you never even noticed it. Im thankful that Im blessed to have a strong heart and clear mind. Family who will always be my strength. Friends who will always pull me up. Love who will always guide me. if you ever hit rock bottom, dont be ashamed of opening up to your loved ones. if anyone understands and cares about what you're going through, its them. You are who/what you say you are. If you think you're weak, you will be weak. If you tell yourself you are not worthy, you will be unworthy. But, if you say you're strong, you will be strong and If you tell yourself you can do it, you can do anything. The ONLY validation that you will ever need is one from yourself. If you're HEARTBROKEN, cry it out, okay.. and then STOP. Pick yourself up and dust it off. He/She ain't the last person on earth. Trust me when I tell you that you will find someone else… meant for you and who will better you. I didn't believe that before either, but here I am now. DONT EVEN think about hurting yourself or taking your life just because you want the pain and sadness to stop. ITS OKAY to be sad. ITS OKAY to feel pain. ITS OKAY to be vulnerable. We are made to have emotions. Dont be afraid to let it out. Before you do something you will regret, think about all the great things that you can do in the future, people you will meet and places you travel to, the lives you will touch. I almost did it before and Im so thankful that I didn't do it, because If I did, I wouldn't be living the life that I have now. Stay with us because life is beautiful. #KeepGoing ;
