Awra Briguela expressed remorse over her past mistakes to her family, as well as those "who were involved," nearly a year after she was caught in a brawl in Makati that resulted in her arrest.

On her Instagram account, the comedian penned a lengthy letter addressed to the people she "disappointed," those who were "involved," and her family.

"Gusto ko simulan sa pag hingi ng tawad sa pamilya ko lalong lalo na magulang ko," Awra began. "Patawad kung mas pinili kong takbuhan at talikuran ang problema. Patawad kung wala akong tapang harapin ang mga issues naten isat isa. Patawad kung mas pinili kong tumakbo mag pakasaya nang panandalian imbis na ayusin natin ang problema."

"Alam kong hindi naging madali sa inyo na makita at mapanuod ako sa sitwasyong hindi maganda. Patawad kung na dismaya ko kayo maraming bagay. Patawad kung nag bago ako at nag iba ang ugali ko," she continued.

Awra promised that she would try to change herself for the better but acknowledged that it wasn't going to be easy.

"Ang tanging hiling ko lang sa ngayon ay naway sana wag kayong mapagod na bigyan ako ng pag kakataon mag bago at bumawi sa lahat ng pagkakamali ko at ang pagkakataon na 'to ay hinding hindi ko na sasayangin," she wrote.

In the later half of her letter, the local star began to address "the ones who were involved." While she didn't specify the issue, she appeared to be alluding to her brawl at a bar in Poblacion where she allegedly tried to take a man's shirt off by force, leading to the heated conflict.

'Willing to take accountability'

Apologizing for the incident, Awra wrote, "The mistakes and all the damages that were done was mine and I am willing to take accountability and responsibility. I will take all of these as a lesson that I will carry for the rest of my life."

She then shared that she and the individuals she wronged are now on good terms and have settled things privately, but she still wanted to express her gratitude to them for accepting her apology.

"To the people who believed in me, I want to thank you all as well and I'm very sorry for letting you all down. I will make it up to you by correcting, fixing, and owning up my mistakes. I know it will take a lot of time for you all to forgive me, but please do know that I'm taking my time as well to forgive myself," Awra wrote.

She ended her post with some heartfelt words directed at herself, saying, "| am very sorry that I let our emotions consume us, I'm sorry we lost our spark at some point of our life and I'm very very sorry 'cuz I didn't take care of ourself.

"All of these were such a real nightmare and I don't want to let the fear win again. This definitely served as a big big lesson for me," she highlighted.

Awra's letter comes just days after she talked about her Makati controversy in Vice Ganda's YouTube vlog, wherein she said that she is "getting better and getting stronger."

Talking about the incident, Awra said, "Nung nakulong ako, parang 'di ko pa rin siya ma-realize na parang nangyayari na sa akin 'yun."

"'Di ko talaga siya inexpect kasi nga, YOLO ako nun eh, I [partied] almost every night. Super gimikera talaga ako nun, I just want to have fun talaga and makalimot ng problema, so in short tinatakabuhan ko mga problema ko, hindi ko siya hinaharap, so nung nangyari siya sa akin, 'di ako makapaniwala," she continued.

The brawl took place in June last year.

Charges of physical injuries, alarm and scandal, direct assault, and disobedience to a person in authority were filed against Awra, with additional ones that include light threats, grave coercion, and violation of the Safe Spaces Act.
