Thoughts swirl out of control as I try to force myself to be calm. The what ifs manifest inside my mind and my heart begins to race. I question any and all actions that he displays. Am I really enough? Is this really love? What if another woman walks into his life and he is swept off his feet, and I am left lying on the ground in broken pieces? There are certainly others who I’m sure can offer more than I can. I know they’re out there, waiting for him to enter their lives, the way he entered mine.
It’s only a matter of time.
