No one likes to admit it but arguments are actually normal for couples. Your partner is a person too, with his or her own flaws. Netizen Kleon Tolentino shared his struggles and misunderstandings with his girlfriend. This is why he is sharing relationship advice to all other couples out there who are experiencing the same — those who are also engaged in “Break-Balikan” kind of relationships.
Tolentino took to Facebook to share his relationship advice, starting with how it feels like to be in the starting phases of a relationship. This is the so-called “honeymoon phase” which is usually felt by married couple. However, Tolentino says this happiness will soon be replaced with sadness.
At first, it seems like love conquers all. As he said, couples would always say, “Mag-aaway lang tayo pero hindi maghihiwalay.” Sometimes this confidence would beak because both partners feel that the constant fighting has become difficult to handle.
This will start a toxic and vicious cycle of break-ups and make-ups, which only makes things worse. This cycle will take away the emotional strength of both individuals, no matter how much they love each other.
According to Tolentino, things get much worse when couples start to look for the spark and intense love they felt when they were just beginning their relationship. Furthermore, when two couples start to feel like the relationship’s gone cold, the tendency is to find the warmth somewhere else.

Couples could also sometimes feel like they’ve lost the anticipation that used to come with seeing each other. This could lead to catastrophic results, as some couples would choose to leave the relationship at this point.
As per Tolentino’s relationship advice, however, the time for introspection is of utmost importance.
“Sa tuwing may alitan, gigising at matutulog ka ng may dalang KABA at LUNGKOT. Na sa bawat pag gising mo may SANA kang iniisip. SANA BUMALIK NA SIYA, SANA AKO NALANG ULIT, SANA HINDI GANITO etc. bakit kailangan humantong sa ganitong sitwasyon? Na ang isa bumitaw habang ang isa patuloy na lumalaban. Gaano nga ba katatag ang binuo niyong relasyon? Gaano nga ba?” he asks.
In the end, he challenged struggling couples to communicate in trying to fix things, instead of always challenging one another to break up.
