I can’t help but think of “what if”! What if we have acknowledged each other’s feelings?
What if we talked about what happened instead of hiding behind those fake smiles and small talks?
What if we acknowledged the fact that yes we both made a mistake, unintentionally, but we are grown ups who can handle it and act upon it, not just act fine and ignore it.
Acknowledgment would have made it easier, but we chose the hard way!
