Actor Patrick Garcia’s wife Nikka Martinez-Garcia shared on her blog how God has helped her move on from her insecurities and reach out to the mother of her husband’s son Jazz, actress Jennylyn Mercado.
“When Pat and I were just dating; I was young and still a little immature. I was confident in mostly everything except his past. Knowing that he has a son whom he adores with someone he used to love, not to mention, a very good-looking person… brought about the feeling of INSECURITY in me,” she wrote. Saying that although she strongly supports Patrick in visiting his son, she would, “Start creating crazy scenarios in my head, over analyze certain things, look at my watch every now and then,” among others, without him knowing.
Admitting that she would contemplate about whether or not she would tell him about how she feels, Nikka shared that Patrick would sometimes bring her with him she but would back out, and would choose to stay in the car or outside Jennylyn’s home.
“There would be debates in my head (probably the entire trip to her house) whether I should go down or stay in the car. I just didn’t know my place. I didn’t know how to act. I did not want to make pa-extra. I did not want to be a distraction. I did not want to show disrespect in any kind of way with my presence. I did not want to do anything that may cause him not to see his joy.”
But because she knew how happy Patrick feels whenever he sees his son, she said she would forget her insecurities as it makes her so happy as well.
