What does it mean to sacrifice for love? For many Filipinos, they will not think twice about sacrificing their personal happiness or even risking their lives for their families.

In Kapamilya teleseryes, we get to watch characters whose lives mirror our own – whether it’s prioritizing our loved ones’ needs above our own, giving up our own life to save someone else’s, or putting our dreams on hold.
Here are six examples from Kapamilya characters that show real love is an ultimate act of selflessness:

  1. MIKMIK IN “NANG NGUMITI ANG LANGIT”

Despite her young age, Mikmik has already had a taste of the cruel life. But all her hardships only made her stronger, and her pure heart has always been her weapon in facing all obstacles head-on. She even risked her life for her father Michael (RK Bagatsing) when she took the bullet to save him from Katrina (Cristine Reyes). Though she has all the reasons to hate on her enemy, Mikimik still found it in her heart to forgive Katrina and be thankful for having another chance to be with her family.

  1. CHICO IN “PAMILYA KO”

Chico (JM De Guzman) is a dependable brother to his family, especially to his siblings as he tries to attend to each of their needs. However, the tragic death of his brother Jack, which his mother Luz (Sylvia Sanchez) indirectly blames him for, has caused him to be an outcast in his own household. However, this did not hinder Chico from reaching out to his family as he continues to endure the pain of not belonging just to be with them. He learned about his father Fernan’s (Joey Marquez) infidelity, but chose to bear the pain himself instead of revealing the well-kept secret in order to keep his family intact.

  1. FABIO IN “THE KILLER BRIDE”

Blood may not always thicker than water.  Fabio (Miko Raval) is a great father to Emma (Janella Salvador), despite the two not being related by blood. He made her feel the love that Emma did not get from Camila (Maja Salvador) and became her source of strength. When Fabio discovered Camila’s plans of using Emma to seek revenge on Las Espadas, he instantly confronted Camila and tried to take away their adopted daughter from the forthcoming danger. However, as he listened to Camila’s plea, he decided to stay in Las Espadas, putting his life on the line not only to ensure his family’s safety but also to help Camila finally close the darkest chapter of her life.

  1. TERESA IN “STARLA”

While her father Greggy (Joel Torre) was doing time in prison for saving the life of a stranger, young Teresa (Heaven Peralejo) was left to take care of her sick mother. Struggling with balancing school and working to earn money for her mother’s treatment, Tere had to give up her life as a normal teenager for the sake of her mom’s well-being. While she pleaded for help from neighbors who shunned her away, Tere learned to stand up on her own and sold ‘balut’ even during school hours. Even with blooming feelings for kindhearted Philip (Brace Arquiza), she instantly told him off and explained that her time was only dedicated to her dear mother.

  1. CARDO IN “FPJ’s ANG PROBINSYANO”

Cardo (Coco Martin) is a symbol of patriotism, having sacrificed his life countless of times to save people in need. He became a police officer who busted the biggest gangs and modus operandi that victimized the public, a member of the vigilante group Vendetta who seized some of the most corrupt officials, and now the leader of Task Force AGILA who just ended the life of one of the country’s most wanted criminals. It is a tough job, but Cardo never once lost his fire to be of service to his fellowmen.

  1. JOAN AND CORDELIA IN “SANDUGO”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jzJV-HZTR0

To what lengths can a mother go just to provide for her child? “Sandugo’s” chaotic story began when Joan (Cherry Pie Picache) gave up her son Aris in exchange for money to save the life of her other sickly son, JC, who was running out of time and was in dire need of an operation. Her heartbreaking decision did not sit with her well, and she came to regret what she did and ran after Aris.  But in “Sandugo,” the story of parents sacrificing even their values and principles to give their kids a better future is the outstanding theme – Cordelia (Vina Morales) even got into stripping and entertaining just to make ends meet and send her son to school.
