I wasn’t in love with Simon any more. I hadn’t been in love with Simon for a long time. I was in love with not being on my own, with having someone there at the end of the day and now I knew I didn’t need that. My heart was not broken over him: it was breaking for the things I had wanted from him. And I didn’t want them any more.
Everything’s going to be fine. Sooner or later you’re going to find someone who knocks you right off your feet. Someone who makes you feel alive. Someone who kisses you and makes your knees weak. Relationships are complicated enough as it is. It’s not worth settling for anything less.
As you get older, you’ll realize there isn’t enough time to waste regretting the things you’ve done. Apologize, explain, wait for them to come to you. You can’t rush forgiveness, but you can’t waste your life waiting for it either.
