not all the time. but a cool-off kasi is a show of doubt. and it takes a lot of work to recover from that so not a lot of people are able to make it. because even if you do get back together, new trust issues will surface on top of the ones that are already existing. so even if they get back together, it's not an automatic, "oh we're okay, we're fine." it doesn't work that way.
but i think sometimes people need space to see things clearly. and i think just because you're not labeling it as a "cool off", it's not the same thing. i mean, even if you haven't technically abandoned a relationship, doesn't really mean you haven't and vice-versa.
sa akin lang, kahaba-haba man ng prusisyon, kung sa simbahan man o sa kangkungan ka pupulutin, eh wala ka nang magagawa
