Years ago, Boy Abunda interviewed local celebrity Claudine Barretto and asked her how she handles those who attack her.
This was a time when Claudine was at the peak of her career.
She answered that her mom taught her “You don’t start a fight but you don’t walk away from it.”
She further explained that, it means you don’t let others bring you down and that you always have to defend yourself.
I can never forget her answer. I loved her but I disagree with what she said.
