Junice: You love him too much. You love him, why should he be scared? Yeah.
Me: Why should he be scared! Exactly! I just think, maybe he knows he can love me as much as I love him but it scares him ’cause love and heartbreak go hand in hand.
Junice: They go hand in hand that’s why you two should face it holding each other’s hand, right?
Me: He needs to grow some balls.
Junice: If I’m not trying to understand him, I’ll call him a freaking coward.
Me: He’s a freaking coward. I don’t blame him, tho.
“Lola,” He rolls his chair over to my side. “I know things are shite right now. And in the name of friendship and full disclosure, I went through something similar last year. When I met Anna, I was with someone else. And it took a long time before I found the courage to do the hard thing. But you have to do the hard thing.”
I swallow. ” And what’s the hard thing?”
“You have to be honest with yourself.”
And I realized he’s not a freaking coward. He did the hard thing. Not everyone has the courage to be true to himself.
