Seven days ago, I was shocked to find out about the new girl of my “One That Got Away.” I felt sad for the confirmation (which is normal, I guess) yet thankful at the same time, because now he finally has that someone who can give him everything I cannot.
And today, Valentine’s day, I was running late for work and I stumbled upon them two.
Without hesitations, hurt feelings, or whatsoever… I smiled. And he smiled back, too.
I glanced at the girl, my face still smiling. And continued to where I’m supposed to go.
I didn’t stutter, burst down crying, nor felt bitter.
Maybe after seeing them today, I can finally say that I am truly happy for him and for me because I need to worry no more.
And for that, I’m truly thankful.
This is just the beginning. Love needs no hurry.
Nothing can (read: could/should) ruin my day. No one. Not even me.
“We need, in love, to practice only this: letting each other go. For holding on comes easily; we do not need to learn it.” -Rainer Maria Rilke
