This might not be easy to hear, but I don't think it is ever wise to make another person the "how" to your happiness. All you can do is apologize. Do that, and then let go. Stop beating yourself up. She might come back, she might not, but either choice on her part should have little to do with your happiness. You can be happy either way. There are an infinite number of people out there who you could share the journey with, and all will find you more fun and interesting if you can find happiness without them.
