Kapamilya actor Marco Gumabao sure is having a great year with all the projects coming his way. Aside from the ongoing teleserye, Los Bastardos, Marco is also busy for an upcoming film with Anne Curtis entitled Just a Stranger which will be directed by Jason Paul Laxamana.
Marco also starred in a recent online movie written by Bela Padilla, Apple of my Eye. It was launched on Valentine’s Day and also featured Krystal Reyes.
With all of these projects, creating a balanced life is hard for a lot of celebrities like him. Many have opened up about going through depression with our country being more aware of such mental illnesses.
However, Marco shared in a recent interview with PUSH that so far, he has never experienced depression.
He said, “Honestly never pa. Hindi pa ako nakaka-experience ng depression, that’s why I don’t get it. But I respect people who have it. I’m thankful na walang kahit anong depression na thought na pumasok sa isip ko.
“Pero I also sympathize with people who are going through depression because it’s really hard. It’s a battle between you and yourself.”
When asked for a message for those people going through depression, he quipped, “Basta ang message ko sa mga tao who are depressed or who are thinking about ending it, maraming tao ang nag-iisip niyan. Just go to God.”
The 24-year old actor also shared that he usually listens to worship songs to feel at peace.
“Ako siguro ang nakatulong ng malaki sa pagkatao ko is going to church, reading the bible or reading anything about God everyday.”
“If you feel sad, listen to praise and worship songs. Everyday ako nakikinig sa praise and worship songs. Parang I find myself at peace with it. Ang pinaka-favorite kong worship song is titled ‘Breathe.’ So hinga. Pakinggan niyo. It’s the best. You guys will find peace just with listening to the song.”
