Today I came to the realization I was holding on to hope, hope that they would change their minds, hope that if we tried a little harder.. perhaps it could work again. So I asked about this, she said there was no possibility. And in their relationship she's the one who calls the shots.. I guess I was romancing the wrong partner! (being sardonic here).
In a way, I feel relieved, like I have let go of the last weight that was pulling me down from moving on. I can say I tried till the end, so now it's just moving forward toward something that can be.
Thank you guys, thank you all.
