"I think the day I chose to walk away, I should know that I might never be able to revert back to the past. Now when I look at them living their lives without me, being happy, I should be happy too. Yeah, it hurts, but that it because I used to love them. Maybe I still do. But I knew then that if I never left, I would just be a broken mess. I am happier. I am picking up the pieces. I am learning to start anew."
