If not being emotionally attached and thinking it was also a big deal sounds contradictory, you’re probably right, but emotions are not often logical.

I wish I could tell her how sorry I am for wasting her time. Sorry for not being thoughtful, for treating her poorly, for often putting my friends and status over her. And even though I wouldn’t expect her to accept the apology, I would want to make it.

Maybe the lesson is that we need to treat people well while they’re still alive. That even if we’re not meant to be life partners, we should remember that people are still people, and that everyone deserves kindness and care.
