“2020 is the year of self-awareness & mental health awareness because the lockdown has been hard, if not for everyone, but for the most of us.” – Roma Miclat
“The pandemic has made me realise, at a very deep level, that they (my family members, cousins, etc,) don’t care about me.” – Patricia Buhril
“Realising that your family and close friends, or who you think are your close friends, are not necessarily the people who love you. There are people who are not related to you who love you and care about you.” – Patricia Buhril.
“Keep in mind that you’re doing this because it makes you happy. And this lockdown taught me not to waste time.”- Danica Cremona
Infidelity, betrayal, revenge, nervous breakdown and errthang! – A world of Married Couple is not your ordinary que rida story. This is like the Game of Thrones of TV Drama and so for S05’s first episode, I invited 3 of my closest friends and we discussed this K-drama & our stand on cheating and marriage struggles. Listen now!
In this episode we cover:
Our official reaction and review of The World of the Married, the winner of the 56th Baeksang Arts Awards.
Different points of view of 4 women when it comes to friendship, infidelity and marriage struggles.
How the drama showcased the position of women in the society – being a divorced woman & earning more.
The different types of women/wives and how they handle infidelity.
When will you draw the line and when is it your business to tell your friend that his/her partner is cheating?
Will you tell your kids?
When faced with adversity, always go back and check your moral compass.
Cheating is disrespecting your partner and lying is a choice. It’s your choice to betray your wife/partner.
Being a strong, successful woman is not a flaw nor your fault.
“You won’t win with people. Everyone will always have an opinion about you or your life or your decisions, so just do what you feel and think is right. You don’t owe them an explanation.” – Roma Miclat
Self-body image and personal insecurities & effects of social media
Components of Body Image
“The problem with social media is not that it’s full of gorgeous, successful, stylish people. It’s that it’s full of gorgeous, successful, stylish people who are supposed to be just like us.” – Anuschka Rees, Beyond Beautful
“Be happy with your skin. Celebrate your color. Love your cellulites and scars because they tell stories of what you’ve gone thru. And when we learn and realise these, we can be better example to our kids.” – Roma Miclat
“That body that is given to you is a blessing. You can become the best version of yourself. Don’t be someone else.” – Patricia Buhril
