EXPERIENCE is the best teacher.
This was the gist of Sarah Geronimo's interview when Sun.Star and other entertainment press caught up with the Pop Princes at the grand press launch of the newest Star Cinema movie "Maybe This Time".
Geronimo, together with Ruffa Gutierrez and Coco Martin, will top bill the Jerry Sineneng flick about falling in love, drifting apart and life’s second chances.
According to the young actress, she could relate to Steph Asuncion, her character in the movie, as she also went through first love and growing pains. But, Sarah believes one must sometimes go through roadblocks in life to learn and mature over time.
"Importante talaga for you to be able to grow, you have to go through things that will make you mature as a person. Yung lalawakan yung pananaw mo sa buhay, yung pagiging naive mo," she said.
The singer added: "May purpose ang bawat isa kung bakit sila dumaan, nag-exist or nawala sa buhay mo. Some people will teach you a seen that will make you grow as a person."
For someone who experience love and pain firsthand, the Kapamilya star shared it made her very wary especially on matters of the heart. But along the way, she did learn a lot of valuable lessons.
Geronimo said that it all boils down to how a person rise above the challenge and how to continue to work for the better version of oneself.
"Hindi mo naman mapipigilan ang sarili mo kung halimbawa may isang tao na magpakita sa iyo na maganda naman ang intensyon. Ang important lang doon na kung nasa isang relasyon ka, or kahit hindi sa romantic relationship, dapat alam mo kung paano alagaan yung sarili mo. Dapat buo ka kahit wala yung tao na yung sa buhay mo. Importante na mabuo ka talaga muna," she said.
Geronimo said she is also thankful that she's constantly guided by her parents who advised her to not hurry love. They said there is a right time for everything.
"Ang lagi nilang sinasabi sa akin na andiyan sila always to guide me. Kung ano yung nakikita nila, kung maganda or hindi maganda basta sasabihin nila. Na magiging honest sila. Alam din nila na tumatanda na din tayo at andiyan sila to support me kung ano man yung maging desisyon ko sa buhay," she added.
Right now, Geronimo said she's happy but there are still a lot of things she's keen to do and achieve in both her personal life and career.
"Happiness is a choice. May mga bagay na pinagdadaanan tayo. Hindi ko matukoy kung happiest kasi marami pa tayong gustong mangyari sa buhay natin. Ako as a person ang dami dami ko pang gustong i-improve sa sarili ko," she added.
When asked what she wants to say to her old self after all the issues she's been through, the Pop Princess said she has nothing to tell as it's all part of growing up.
"Kailangan talagang pagdaanan ng kahit sinong tao, kahit sinong dalaga or lalake (yung mga experiences). Advise? Learn from yourself. Kailangan mong makita at matutunan yun for yourself," Geronimo ended.
"Maybe This Time" opens in theaters May 28. (Sunnex)
