5 valuable lessons that the new Filipino rom-com film, ‘Seasons,’ can teach us

Could your best friend be your best match?

Easy Ferrer’s ‘Seasons’ might just give an answer to that. This best-friends-to-lovers rom-com story navigates the lines between platonic and romantic love in the portrayals of Charlie (Lovi Poe) and Kurt (Carlo Aquino). As the narrative unfolds, it invites audiences to delve into the complexities of their relationship through gripping moments that leave you pondering until the end of the film.

As it tackles love, self-discovery, and true friendship, here are five lessons we can get from this film:

We all have our own season

In our hopes to achieve our personal dreams, we often create self-imposed timelines which eventually puts unnecessary pressure on ourselves. We all move at our own pace, and we must not give in to what society expects of us. As we can’t force things to go our way all the time, it is important that we learn to embrace the season we are in. What’s meant for you will make its way to you.

You realize the value of the people around you only after you’ve lost them

As long as the people we love continue to be there for us, we have a tendency to take them for granted. But the harsh truth is: people come and go. Don’t be afraid to express the love and appreciation you have for the special ones in your life. You never know just until when you can keep doing so.

A genuine friendship will remain true until the end

Through thick and thin, a true friend will always have your back in all ways. As the saying goes, “true friends are never apart, maybe in distance but never in heart.” We all deserve a friendship that is pure and whole, no matter what life throws our way.

We do anything for the love we think we deserve

Admit it, you don’t mind doing the craziest of things as long as it’s for someone you love, even if your feelings aren’t reciprocated. But you must learn to know whether your actions continue to serve a purpose for yourself. Always keep in mind that to love others the right way and in the way you deserve to be loved, that kind of love must come from within yourself first.

It’s never too late to start over and rebuild yourself after a setback

We all make mistakes, and that’s perfectly okay. But it’s our responsibility to gather the courage and pick ourselves up after the battle, all at our own pace. Remember, rejections are redirections. Failures are meant to bring you to greater heights.
