Lovely Abella shared a touching story behind her “first dance” with her biological father during her wedding.
It’s part of tradition that fathers would usually have their “last dance” with their daughters as they give them away to their husbands. For Lovely, however, she had a “first dance” with her biological dad during her wedding.
On Instagram, Lovely revealed the heartwarming story she has with her biological dad. She explained that growing up, she thought that her grandparents were her real parents and her biological father was her brother.
“Ito ang Daddy ko na inakala ko noon ay kapatid ko lang. Noong bata ako, ayoko sa kanya, galit ako pag nakakasama siya, kahit anong pang uuto niya sa akin, binabalewala ko,” Lovely said.
However, as time went by, she was able to realize his fatherly love for her and his desire to make up for his shortcomings.
“Lumipas ang panahon ‘di man kami nagkasama nang matagal, ‘di man niya ako inaruga, ‘di man niya ako nabigyan ng magandang edukasyon, ‘di man niya nabigay lahat ng gusto ko, ‘di man niya naituro sakin kung ano ang tama sa mali pero ramdam kong MINAHAL niya ako,” she went on.
The Kapuso actress disclosed that she was able to let go of the hurt she had been holding on to and replaced it with love for her father.
“Ramdam ko na gusto niyang bumawi sa lahat ng pagkukulang niya sa pamamagitan ng paalala sa iba’t ibang bagay, at napalitan lahat ng yun ng PAGMAMAHAL, tama nga talaga kahit anong
galit sa puso mo nawawala lahat ng yun nawawala pag PAGMAMAHAL ang nangingibabaw sa PUSO mo,” Lovely added.
In the end, Lovely reminded everyone that one’s life is perfect and it depends on how we learn to value and make use of it.
