Julia Barretto had a roller coaster of a year in 2019. We previously touched on why she doesn’t believe in regrets in our December “What If?” cover, the first part of our “CHOICES” issue. This time, we focus on her. The crowds have roared, the winds have blown, and the seas have crashed on her. And yet she is unbowed, unbent, unbroken.
In Julia’s core, she knows who she truly is. She describes herself in the shortest of ways.
“Julia is at peace. Period.”
We already know she has no regrets. She believes that everything happens for a reason. She has no what-ifs and owns her decisions.
“You keep looking back and then once you look forward, everyone’s moved on. And you’re like ‘Oh My God, what am I still doing here?”
Julia Barretto doesn’t have time to be thinking of those things. She is already in peace. She protects that peace. Being in the industry has taught her to focus on the things that matter. Focus on her family, her friends, and her self. That’s what matters.
“The things that don’t matter to me will never tap my energy. Not even one percent of it.”
Julia Barretto is Julia Barretto. Period.
Being in the industry is no easy thing to do. People will never fully understand the going-ons in her life. Julia wants to open up more to her audiences by creating her IGTV and YouTube channel.
She doesn’t have to say everything. You don’t have to know everything about her, either. Always being in the spotlight isn’t easy. But no matter what, she still has her head held high.
“Never allow yourself to be kicked around.”
