  49. 49. Reflections
  50. 50. I am against having love and commitment in the context of relationship of the youth today because it’s getting very shallow in a sense that a relationship could only last for a day. - Shey Asuncion Teenagers who are engaging in commitments must realize that this is one big responsibility and that they may lose a lot of things in the process if they make wrong decisions. Therefore, they must always keep a rational mind in making decisions in order not to have regrets in the future. - Christelle Conti
  51. 51. Teenagers were getting into a relationship even they were not get ready so the tendency they entered in a situation that they can’t handle. - Katherine Datu Being in a relationship requires full time commitment. It means fulfilling the promises you have made to your partner. It also requires you to be loyal to your partner. - Sarah Nicole Santos
  52. 52. Love can’t live without a commitment. It’s like cooking rice, rice grains cannot be cook without water, just like in love, love cannot last long without a commitment. We should know the amount of commitment we should put into a relationship. - Rose Anne Tan Love is an unconditional commitment. You didn’t love her just because of what she has but for who she is as a whole. Being in love is not just a strong feeling but a decision. Yes, it’s easy to fall and it makes you feel good inside. But it also requires effort to make your relationship work. Also pray for your partner and put God ALWAYS at the center. - Rejoice Dianara Villanueva
