5. NAGKAROON AKO NG DOUBT SA LAHAT NG BAGAY DAHIL SA’YO.
Ouch. It’s like putting a kilo of rock salt on an open wound and juicing it up with some lemon (sorry for the graphic example). Trust is (no, not the condom) hard to regain once broken (again, pun not intended). This goes the same when your partner doesn’t trust you to be responsible enough for your actions. Like Anton in the film, who is overly jealous of other guys, who is suffocating Erika with his domineering and his ego, lack of trust in the first place is also fuel for destruction.
6. I GAVE EVERYTHING AND YOU TOOK EVERYTHING.
The legendary Vilma Santos once quipped in “Relasyon”: “Ako ba may nagawa akong kasalanan hah? Dahil ang alam ko sa relationship, give and take. Pero etong atin, iba eh! Ako give ng give, ikaw take ng take!” This is a no-brainer. Don’t take everything and give back nothing. What are you, a politician?
7. SO THEN WHEN DID WE BECOME THE PROBLEM? I THOUGHT WE WERE IN THIS TOGETHER.
You and your significant other should be a team. If there is a problem, work together to find a solution. This is not a thesis, wherein a group of five people, only one or two does the actual hard work, while the others are either sleeping or checking out memes on Facebook.
8. HINDI NAMAN AKO NAGHAHANAP NG PERFECT EH. IKAW LANG ‘YUN.
What does perfection even mean? FYI, nobody’s perfect. In the film, Anton, who works as a commercial director, is depicted as an iteration of his profession, trying to direct Erika’s life and actions based on his choices alone. This makes us question why Erika stayed so long in the relationship. Heck, love makes a fool out of everyone after all.
