Isn’t she lucky, this Hollywood girl? – Britney Spears
When I first heard the news about Sarah Geronimo breaking down in one of her concerts, I can’t help not to pray for her. I know it’s been so hard for someone to feel the emptiness in spite of the fact that she almost have everything. Money, fame, career, love life and supportive fans.
I’m asking myself, Bakit I feel empty? Hindi yung successful na shows o yung mga hits yung makakapag kumpleto sayo o makakapagpasaya sayo bilang tao, kundi yung tunay na pagmamahal na hindi nagbabago – Sarah Geronimo on Her Las Vegas Concert
It could be so devastating to look for something or someone that you don’t know of. To look for that love that doesn’t change and will never change. Sadly, there are number of celebrities who took their own life not able to find that something that they’ve been looking for.
September 8, 1989 – April 20, 2018
Tim Bergling was a Swedish Musician and record producer.
March 20, 1976 – July 20, 2017
He was the lead vocalist of Linkin Park. He died July 20 of 2017 by hanging himself.
August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009
The king of Pop was considered to be the most successful entertainer of all time.
Given the fame, money and “success” that the three experienced, unfortunately they all decided to take their own lives.
The story is pretty much the same with the story of Judas. A disciple of Jesus Christ who got 30 silver coins by betraying Jesus only to find out that that money he got wouldn’t satisfy him and ended up hanging his life.
There are number of people who are experiencing and experienced the same “emptiness” as what Sarah Geronimo has experienced.
Stars who underwent depression
The Unkabogable Star: Vice Ganda
Hearing Vice Ganda suffering from depression could be a joke to some people. I mean, who would have thought that the Box office star, the phenomenal host, the break though businessman and the first awardee of Dolphy’s lifetime achievement award could be suffering from Depression?
It could pass as a very good joke. However, Vice in His recent interview admitted about it:
“Na-depress ako. I underwent depression. I actually had to meet a doctor, and asked for professional help. Hindi ako nakakatulog, nagkakaroon ako ng anxiety attack. May mga atake sa akin, na nahihirapan ako magtrabaho.” – Vice Ganda on his interview with MJ Felipe
For someone that always makes us laugh and would do his best to lighten up our mood, it takes courage to admit this and I’m proud of Vice for doing so.
Following his brother’s demise this year, I bet it could be hard to be Nadine Lustre. In spite of her illustrious career, she admitted to have suffered from Depression
It may come as a surprise to you but I have struggled with depression way back and still am to this day.
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.” – Nadine Lustre on her Instagram Post
When she posted about #Keepgoing, it became my personal goal to create awareness and lift up those who are depressed. We even launch a merchandise for it.
Here’s a screenshot of Baninay Bautista wearing our #KeepGoing merchandise. I saw it in Benny Cua’s Vlog
Yaya Dub: Maine Mendoza
When Maine stood up against sir Joey De Leon about depression, I knew she has an idea about it or perhaps underwent through it.
Maine being your-not-typical celebrity drew praises from the people for clearing what’s depression all about. This episode of Eat Bulaga ended in a positive note, with the Henyo himself admitted that he is wrong.
Being a Popster, it’s hard to see Sarah Geronimo admitting to have underwent depression. I experienced and wrote about it personally in my blog. But thank God that finally, Sarah Geronimo has found answers to her questions.
Hindi Lovelife, Hindi success sa Trabaho, Hindi pera ang makakapagbuo sayo kundi ang relasyon mo talaga sa Panginoong Diyos – Sarah Geronimo
Sometimes, you have to hit the rock bottom in order for you to realize that only Jesus could satisfy you. There is a void in your heart that only God could fill.
And whoever you are that is reading this blog, please read this 3 takeaways from Sarah Geronimo’s “Emptiness”
(1) Only God could fill the emptiness
To answer the question of Sarah Geronimo in her quest for love that’s never changing. You can only experience and feel it from the love of God.
There is no greater Love than this, To lay down one’s life for one’s friends – John 15:13
If you are experiencing pain now, remember that it isn’t the plan of God for you. Remember that God only plan the best for you. He planned to give you a bright future but Satan wants you to experience otherwise. He wants you to be filled with His love. He even has more than 8000 promises for you.
No matter how much “Success” you have acquired, it would never bring you Joy if you have no relationship with Jesus. Life without Jesus Christ is like a BMW without a Gasoline, It’s useless.
(2) God can hear you
In fact, I believe God has heard my prayer for Sarah. I prayed for her to realized that God loves her and that He listens to her. It could be funny but I know in my heart that there is nothing impossible in Praying. If you truly admire someone, you could pray for them in your quiet time.
Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know – Jeremiah 33:3
(3) It’s never too late to turn to God
Regardless of the sin you have committed, It’s never too late to have a relationship with God. All you have to do is to accept and confess that you have sinned and fall short and that He is the Lord and the savior of your life. Your situation may not change in a snap of the wrist, but know that there’s nothing too hard for the Lord.
