This is what Jared(my level 3 preschool smartest tutee) and I used to play right after our tutorial session. A game where the kid would himself excitedly spin the pen and if it points at either of us, one will get to do the consequence. And little did i realize that what we do is not just to bring excitement out of the boring hour of our tutorial session but also to know how far can i go and enjoy the game with a six-year-old boy whose main goal of playing the game is not only for us to have fun together but to let me do the consequence often and even choose "truth" instead of "dare" for me. After which he would tell me, "teach, i dare you to buy ice cream stick for me!". Truly, kids are fun to be with even when they go vey self-centered most often.
At some point in our life, we are faced with this kind of instance when we come to ask ourself , will i go for "truth" of for "dare"? If you were to choose your consequence, what would you choose? The truth that might make you sad or happy to have realized?or just to dare act out a thing to play safe? I must admit, even if its only a game with a kid, i also fear that out of his weird imagination, the boy might ask me something i might not be ready for an answer. While if i go for "dare", i can just go run to a nearby store and have him the candy that he's asking for.
Isn't it that as adult, we appear to be actually even more funny than kids?Well, i am. They're outspoken and carefree and we are the reserved ones. Simply because out of it all, we know inside of us that all of the truths about life is more than our only capacity to answer a kid...because he's just a kid, and for now he might not understand if i'll speak more of the truth out of his very own simple curiosity about something. Pero sabi nga, lahat ng bata ay may karapatan to know everything around him. Di nga ba kapag ampon ang isang bata, nahihirapan ang ibang magulang sabihin ang totoo dahil mas natatakot ang magulang for them? Well I am not an adopted child, but what i am trying to assimilate is just the fact that sometimes, we rather want to go with the flow, deal with life's everyday consequences than trying to figure out all the truth that it brings.
Sabi nga ni lojik, hindi naman mahalagang malaman natin lahat ng rason tungkol sa mga bagay-bagay,minsan go ka na lang.. and its true! What matters after all is that even when you feel like you already sink in when things are too much for you to bear, never forget to stay afloat still. After all, you can't go swim alone in the vastness of the acean if nothing sustains you from within. Whatever it is, whether you go for "truth" or "dare"...remember that YOU ARE NOT ALONE! Go..look at the clouds for sometimes out of your hurly-burly busy day, and you'll realize that truly, "you are not alone..".
