"Let go. Be confident. Know that now is only a moment, and that if today is as bad as it gets, understand that by tomorrow, today will have ended."

You no longer need massive shows of affection to prove your love for each other. Or to parade your relationship all over the internet. Because you’ve become so comfortable in your little world. That you really don’t care enough to show it to the rest of the real world. Probably because you’re so much more secure about your relationship. And it’ll take a lot to make you lose faith in what you guys took so long to build.
Forgiving someone doesn’t mean condoning their behavior. It doesn’t mean forgetting how they hurt you or giving that person room to hurt you again. Forgiving someone means making peace with what happened. It means acknowledging your wound, giving yourself permission to feel the pain, and recognizing why that pain no longer serves you. It means letting go of the hurt and resentment so that you can heal and move on. Not because what happened didn’t matter, but because harboring that level of anger and bitterness takes up too much energy and causes too much pain. You don’t need any more pain. You need to heal. And in order to do that, you need to forgive. Not for them, but for you.
If he loves you, he will make sure you know. Not just by words, but by actions too.
