Cherished each other’s feelings but regrettably caused a misunderstanding in the way things were handled, the more I worried about causing harm may have caused even more harm. For this, I feel really guilty and sorry. In the past two days, I deeply reflected and realized that I was not mature enough in facing this relationship. In the next couple years, I will focus on work and studies and won’t get emotionally involved. To all the friends who care about me, I am sorry.”
