iza_calzado_breakup.jpgActress Iza Calzado confirmed her breakup with businessman Atticus King, her non-showbiz boyfriend of two and a half years, in an interview on Showbiz Central on August 21, PEP.ph reports. "We had a good run, tapos na (it's over)," she is quoted as saying. "Masaya naman kaming nagkasundo na, tapos na ang lahat. (We're happy, and we've settled our differences. It really just is over.) And we ended it well."

Yet despite the inevitable sadness that comes with breakups, Iza believes it when others say people are in our lives either for a reason or for a lifetime. "I think for this one, it's for a reason and a season," she is quoted as saying. "Because, for a reason, I had to learn so many things from him, and I did. And I'm very, very grateful to him, his family, and to the relationship that we had because I don't think I'll be this woman that I am now if not for that relationship."

While dealing with pain is never easy, Iza says she's grown wiser over the years and that she's moved on from those days when she would go out after a breakup and look at other boys to make herself feel better. "It would always be an ego thing. There was always a need to fill in a certain gap, and you don't do that by looking to others. So ngayon, ang ginawa ko, tiningnan ko ang sarili ko, inisip ko, 'Ano ba yung kulang, ano ba yung dapat gawin para sa sarili ko?' (What I do now is I look at myself and think, 'What's missing, and what can I do for myself?')"

Iza took the opportunity to take a solo vacation and reflect in the aftermath of the breakup. "Talagang everything was to look inside, intindihin ko yung sarili ko, intindihin ko kung ano yung kailangan kong gawin para sa sarili ko (I tried to understand myself. I tried to figure out what I needed to do for myself)," she is quoted as saying on PEP.ph. "Kaya din siguro maraming mga biyayang dumating. (I think it's why a lot of blessings came my way.) At saka trust this—God will always give you exactly what you need at the perfect time! Always."
