30 Dec – Nadine Lustre recently admitted that while she reached the lowest point of her life this year, she has also learned a lot from the experience.

As reported on Push, the actress, who spoke to Angie Mead King and Debbie Then in a new vlog, revealed that she failed to secure a lot of projects this year, which has sparked fear in her that people thought that she is no longer of any significance.

"I was really struggling. I was thinking to myself that 'I have no work, I might eventually be a 'has been' or you know, that kind of thing'," she said.

However, she also tried to change her mindset, and that the pandemic had enabled her to have the time to think about what she really wanted.

"I would have conversations with myself and I would always tell myself to just you know, 'Take your time. There's no rush. The world's not going to end tomorrow'," she said, adding that she was able to see how much she had worked for the past five years and how that it had lost sight of who she is as a person.

"It affected me so much that I lost myself. I didn't know who I was, I didn't know what I want. I was just lost," she said.

She said that being able to have the time to herself made her realise that she doesn't need validation from others.

"If I don't have projects, then that's fine. I'll do something else. It's not that my life is dependent on that," she stated.
