You are very fortunate that you’ve been blessed with the blessing of realization. Not everybody gets the tawfeeq to accept his/her mistake. Now that you know your mistake,you should be thankful to Allah that He awakened your conscience and gave you the chance to repent.And Allah loves those who repent.As it is mentioned in the quran:
إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ التَّوَّابِينَ

Verily God loves the repentant, (2:222

Allah is very Kind and Merciful and never seals the hearts of those who repent.infact it is He who paves the way for His servants to be able to return to the right path.

My advice is that do istighfar constantly and never lose hope in Allah’s mercy ,as the Quran says:

Surah Az-Zumar, Verse 53:
قُلْ يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسْرَفُوا عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِهِمْ لَا تَقْنَطُوا مِن رَّحْمَةِ اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ

Say: O my servants! who have acted extravagantly against their own souls, do not despair of the mercy of Allah; surely Allah forgives the faults altogether; surely He is the Forgiving the Merciful.

Sukaina Taqawi.
