Per the last post, I still wish he'd reconsider and take me back. But is it because I think we'd be happy? Maybe. I think it's possible. But mostly I think it's because... just because. How do you not wish for something to work that you put 16 years into? How can you not wish to not have been wrong? How can you not wish for someone to be whom you thought they were and who you still believe in? I wish it all the time.
The 'progress' comes into play in being able to remind myself that it likely will not happen.
