For you, it is a better understanding of human nature which goes to evolving your own maturity and outlook on life helping you better understand what is important to you.

What you did get our of this last exchange with him was closure. You realize a relationship out side of friends will not work. Now go and focus on being friends and leave behind what can not be. You can now move forward without confusion.
You are right however, accepting that we can't be together is not a phase I have reached yet. My mind just refuses to let go of the hope. Although I wish I didn't, I still believe there is a reason to hope.
Hence, your on your way to learning another life lesson - learning when to let go........
