?1i want to know if everything will be alright. i made a mistake with my best friend ... . i confessed everything, [but] he said he needs some time. ugh.
it will be alright.
he says he needs time, and you know him well enough to know if this is true or not. i suspect from your tone that you know he is being truthful.
give him the time he needs.
it's very hard to wait once we've made a decision. we wonder why everyone isn't onboard, because we've done the thinking, the feeling, had the internal conversation. well, he needs to do all that. it's hard, though, to wait, once you've done the hard work. you (rightly) want the pain and estrangement to be over for both of you.
kudos in going to your friend and being truthful. that can be so very difficult and embarrassing. i'm sure your friend knows how truly brave and caring it was for you to admit your mistake and tell him.
he's very fortunate to have you as a friend.
