“… And then, there are the regrets. Things ignored and forgotten, things not done, wishes not fulfilled, promises not kept — and, you wake up to a life you did not plan. You may get back the person, but cannot get back the time, and the time changes the person. I am not the same person I was 10 years ago. I am not the person I was one year ago. I am not the same person I was last month. But, how do you tell them who expect you to remain the person you were 10 years ago?
“Yes, I was in love with you. I had a dream. We wanted to grow old together. That was a decade ago. Today, I don’t love you. I’m sorry, but it’s the truth and it’s nothing to do with you. My priorities have changed. Yes, I may not meet anyone like you again, ever. I know. Yet, I will have to take the chances. I will have to take the step forward.”
