Reacting to the compilation of the fan, Mendoza tweeted on Wednesday, September 9, 2020, about the “Law of attraction”.

At (siguro) kung para sayo talaga ang isang bagay, anuman ang mangyari mapapasayo ‘to. Minsan gusto natin andyan agad-agad, pero talagang may tamang panahon para sa lahat ng bagay, kaya dapat matuto tayong maghintay.” She wrote addressing to her followers and fans.

“Minsan medyo matagal pero pagdating ng panahon baka ikaw rin at ako cheret makakamit mo din yan. Nakakapagod man (at nakakainip) minsan pero huwag mo bitawan. Patuloy kang mangarap at maniwala pero shempre matuto din tayong tumanggap ng mga bagay na hindi para sa atin,” Mendoza wrote.

“Mararamamdaman mo naman kapag hindi talaga para sayo ang isang bagay, pero hindi ibig sabihin non ay wala na tapos na. Merong ibang bagay na nakalaan para sayo at sana kapag dumating na yung tamang oras para doon ay buong puso mong tanggapin ‘yon sa buhay mo.” She added. 

Advising her followers to never give up because you won’t know what you’re capable of achieving unless you keep going. You will never know how much far you’ve come if you allow yourself to stop.
