Sarah Geronimo says being a role model is a big responsibility


051411-sarah-main.jpgSarah Geronimo said that being a role model is a big responsibility, but it’s the price to pay for being famous. “Mahirap kasi hindi ko naman po ito pinili,” she explained. “Pumasok ako ng showbiz, ang gusto ko lang naman po no’n eh kumanta, umarte [at] sumayaw pero ‘di ko alam na magkakaroon ako ng responsibility na magiging role model ka na parang kailangan maging perfect ka. Ganun kasi ang tingin ng public sa mga artista na ‘pag nagkamali, malaking-malaking issue talaga.

While she is thankful that her parents brought her up well, she pointed out that she is still capable of making mistakes. “Of course may mga pagkakamali naman po [ako] dahil mga tao lang naman tayo. Pero kaya nga sobra akong grateful kasi parehong andyan ang mga magulang ko para gabayan ako, ang mga kapatid ko, buo kami.

She did not deny that she had misunderstandings with her parents because there were instances when she disobeyed them, such as when she had a relationship with Rayver Cruz against their will. Sarah’s relationship with the actor got complicated when Cristine Reyes got involved and the Pop Princess was left broken-hearted. However, this experience taught Sarah a valuable lesson. “Bigyan natin ng importance ang desisyon ng mga magulang para sa mga anak nila. Sobra kasi akong na-in love, akala ko tama ako.

She was quick to add though that she did not regret having fallen in love because it was normal for her age and they were both single at that time.
Sarah has no love life now, but she said that she would rather be thankful for the blessings that she has. “Na-bless kami ni Lord na sobrang blessings talaga ang dumarating sa amin.” She continued that her career continues to flourish even if she has flaws and many artists are more talented than her. “Kumbaga Lord blessed me na ibibigay ko na sa ‘yo ang time mo. Pahiram lang sa akin ito ni Lord kaya wala akong karapatan na akuin ito lahat."

“Happiness lang talaga. Hindi naman maiiwasan na magkakaroon ka ng sadness dahil sa mga problema mo pero happy ka lang dahil buhay ka, buhay ang mga mahal mo sa buhay at may kinakain ka at kumakain ka ng tatlong beses sa isang araw.
