It's not easy being in a relationship. There are times when things are sweet and everything seems to go the way you planned them to. But there are also days when nothing seems to go right and you have to adjust to your partner.

That goes for our favorite celebrities, too. Even they are not spared from troubles in their relationships. The good thing is, they've learned a ton of things from being in one and we've compiled those lessons below for you.

  1. Make sure you have an understanding.


It's okay if you can't make things official for now, because you have to take in a lot of consideration before being in one, but make sure that you have an understanding and that you've talked about it just like teen king Daniel Padilla and teen queen Kathryn Bernardo. "Basta exclusive kami sa isa't isa," Daniel said in an interview. "Hindi po puwedeng iba. Kaming dalawa lang, parang ganun." (via

  1. You will only realize the good things once it's gone. So don't ever wait for it to go away completely. 


That's what James Reid taught us when he talked about his relationship with Till I Met You co-star Nadine Lustre. In an interview with Robbie Domingo and Gretchen Ho, the actor said that he only realized what he had with Nadine when they fought for a few days. "I realized how it was not to have her in my life," he explained. "I realized how much she meant to me. They say you don't realize what you have until you lost it. I kinda got a taste of that. So when we became friends again, I really appreciated her more and treasured it a lot more."

  1. Include your parents in the picture.


As we all know, Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil are special to each other but they can't make things official yet since Liza is still too young. But Enrique is willing to wait and even said that he respects what her dad has to say about their relationship. "We treat each other like boyfriend and girlfriend," he said during his interview on Tonight with Boy Abunda. "That's how we just treat each other. We treat each other like we are so parang ganoon na rin. Pero siyempre as not to disrespect them, they didn't say anything yet. So unless sabihin nilang puwede na—but para sa akin it's the same thing na."

  1. Be consistent and let your actions mirror your words.

It's not easy to translate your feelings and words into actions but in a relationship, you have to. Unless you want to confuse your partner about how you feel about them. This is what Gabbi Garcia shared about how her Encantadia co-star Ruru Madrid is with her. "Feeling ko, hindi ko masyadong napapantayan 'yung pagiging sweet niya...Ako siguro may times [na sweet ako] pero si Ruru 'yung consistent talaga, as in from the smallest to biggest things," she said.

  1. Think of the other person first.

If we're being honest, we'll all probably admit that we're selfish by nature. But once you're in a relationship, things change because you also have to think of the person you're with. That's how Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler make their relationship work despite the distance and their busy schedules. "It's important to put that other person first. If you're constantly looking for ways that you can make them happy, and they're constantly looking for ways that they can make you happy, then you kind of lift each other up as much as possible and you can't go wrong," Austin explained.

  1. Learn to love everything about your partner.

You have to love everything about the person you're with—the things that make them perfect, the things that don't, and the things that keep their eyes shining with happiness. In Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid's relationship for example, the "I Wanna Love You Forever" hitmaker tries his hand at riding horses because it's one of the things that make Gigi happy. "My girlfriend rides a little bit. Actually, that's an understatement. She rides very well, and she has since she was a kid. She wants me to do it with her, and I'm not good. But I'm learning, and it's fun," he told Dazed and Confused magazine. "My first lesson was on a really old horse that didn't move very much, so it wasn't that scary. She was on the other horse, the one that moved a lot more. She was jumping over hurdles and I just sat there like, 'Okay, this is freaky.'" (via

  1. Don't mind the noise.

People will talk about your relationship and say the things they want to say. But ultimately, you and your bae's opinions will be the only ones that will matter. Even Liam Hemsworth thinks that way, too, that's why he never reads what people write of him and Miley Cyrus's relationship. "Look, my private life is my private life, and you know, it's important to me to keep it private," he said in an American Airlines publication. "Everything that is written is made up. They don't know. They don't know what's going on. Story after story gets made up and that's all they can write, but they don't know." (via

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
