There were little moments that really slapped me in the face, like driving down the road and catching my eyes dart to a certain car to see if it’s his and feeling disappointed when it wasn’t. And there were bigger moments that weighed heavy on my heart, like dreaming about him while sleeping next to my boyfriend and waking up feeling guilty for the dream but grateful for the time together.
