MANILA, Philippines — Despite the ongoing controversy on his split with actress Bea Alonzo, Kapamilya actor Gerald Anderson shared he remains positive in life, saying his goal is to become a better man.

In an interview with the press during the Skechers Performance Run 2019 on Sunday, Gerald said that he has no choice but to have a positive outlook in life.

“Sa daming negativity, alangan namang pati ako maging nega rin. The only way to fight negativity is being positive. Thinking positive vibes and doing something positive also. Siyempre ang daming negative energy, but if you channel it the right way, may magagawa kang mabuti. So ayon 'yung goal ko, to come out a better man and a better person,” Gerald told Philstar.com.

He, however, admitted that he is still affected by the latest brouhaha involving his former girlfriend Bea and “Between Maybes” co-star Julia Barretto.

“Siyempre but more than me 'yung mga tao sa paligid ko, 'yung mga mahal ko sa buhay, 'yung pamilya ko, 'yun ang mas masakit eh. Kasi kung ako lang parang okay lang sanay naman na ko. Pero mahirap 'pag 'yung pamilya mo. That’s the power of social media, pwede siyang maging kakampi mo, pwede siyang maging weapon so we have to use it in a right way,” Gerald said.  

He said he is hopeful that he will learn more from the controversy since he believes that challenges are always there for him to become a better person.

“Kapag may challenge na dumarating sa buhay mo, laging may natututunan tayo. Ang importante 'don, we learned something from all of this,” he said.
