UH017: Takbo Girl Takbo with Millie Santuile

People do different things to cope with stress. Some women go shopping. Employees quit their jobs. Teenagers turn to friends or spend hours on their phone.

A common theme in all these situations, avoidance or escape is one of the ways that people do to protect themselves from awkward emotions and situations. The question is, how long can you keep running before your problems start to catch up with you?

Who’s on Usapang Hugot

Originally from Laguna, Millie Santuile is the wife of last episode’s guest Ronald Santuile. She is a mother of three and is also a Glorious Hope volunteer like her husband. She is also a solopreneur where she provides customized tabletop fountains to her clients.

Millie joins us on this episode to share where and how she learned to use avoidance as a way to escape compromising and uncomfortable situations. She shares how she successfully avoided awkward situations in school, how this coping mechanism affected her marriage, and the recent breakthrough she’s had concerning her family.


“Na-learn ko na kapag magkakaroon ng hindi magandang sitwasyon sa pamilya, pwede pa rin akong tumakbo pero sa Panginoon na.” – Millie Santuile
