In Focus: Why Sharlene San Pedro Doesn't Need to Be in a Love Team

 

Alright, yes we're big fans of chick flicks—plus points if the stars are our favorite love teams. But on other days, we also don't mind seeing celebrities who make up these pairings take an independent stand in the spotlight without a hint of romance in the picture. We just think a movie can be worth to watch nonetheless and shouldn't be measured by the presence of love interests, as an actor shouldn't be recognized for having it.

Sharlene San Pedro tells us just that. Over the years, since she got her break in Star Circle Quest: Kids and Goin' Bulilit, the young actress didn't have that constant on-screen partner. Sure, NashLene, JaiLene, and SharDon exist, but nothing was ever set in stone. In the face of it all, Shar remains contented. She isn't looking for one, and she doesn't need one. Here's why:

She can shine on her own.

With her talents alone in acting, hosting and performing, Shar can nail everything she does. She doesn't need anybody to complete a scene or deliver lines, and it actually comes with the perks of being able to show more of what she's capable of rather than being known as a mere half of portmanteau names.

She got no time for hate.

Fans have a thing with dragging a person when they don't want them with their faves and Shar needs nothing of that kind of drama. She doesn't want anyone telling her she's not good enough to the point that she'll be forced to sacrifice much to meet expectations at the expense of losing herself.

She can do whatever she wants.

Not being part of a loveteam can be a good thing, you know why? You can have fun by yourself without anyone asking you "Where is *insert name*?" or "Why aren't you with them?" And then you'll feel pressured, because, of course, you always want to satisfy your fans. But for Shar, it's a chance to feel free. She can vlog, fangirl, wear stand-alone Halloween costumes, and just be her most carefree self.

There's a lot of reasons why we're so fond of having a special someone. Perhaps it's the kilig factor. But being on your own doesn't make your life any less kilig. The best part? You can learn to love yourself wholly. We think that's what's important and what Shar is trying to get across. We stan a solo queen!
