That Was Then, This Is Now
Maybe I don’t wonder how you and I compare to each other as much as I wonder how his current feelings for me compare to the feelings he once had for you.

It’s in my nature to be ecstatic for personal change, but I also worry about making a mistake. I repeat “I’m nervous, but I’m excited” when talking to others. However, I should only be saying “I’m excited for this opportunity.”
