“Will I ever stop regretting leaving her?” he asked, his eyes filled with the genuine wonder of a boy who’s heart is being broken for the very first time. The boy who though his age testifies to otherwise, is not yet a man because he hasn’t survived his first heartbreak that teaches us the first most important lesson in life, that there is no such person that you cannot live without, life teaches us to cope with any absence, given that you find it in you to be seduced by her zest.
“I don’t want to lie to you, and I definitely don’t want to tell you something that will console you right now but will eventually prove to not be the truth. You will never stop regretting it. When someone has spent as many years of their life as you have, believing that this one person is going to be around for the rest of your life, that belief becomes a part of who you are, a part that even though you want to you cannot really get rid of. On many days, in low times and happy times, in alone times and otherwise, in important times and at random moments, at times that you want to and at times that you really wish you don’t, you will find your mind going back to her, again and again, wondering what could have been, you will find yourself crying at times, rejoicing at the others, mostly just lying to yourself that it does not matter, but the truth is it does. It always will. You just learn to not let it overpower you, this regret and live anyway.”
