What’s your first instinct after a breakup? Many of us block our exes, unfollow them on social media sites and just hope we never hear from them again. And then there are those who handle their breakups like adults and decide to stay cordial with each other even after a breakup. But, this story of Twitter user Alexsa Sanchez Aguilar has blown us away! This mother of one shared a thread on Twitter, with adequate screenshots, explaining how her ex-boyfriend texted her, a day before his wedding!
Before you reach a conclusion, he actually just wanted to express how grateful he was for the time they spent together! In a sweet and heartwarming message, her ex-boyfriend thanked her for loving him the way she did and wished her the best for her life. How mature is that! When Alexsa shared the screenshots on Twitter, she admitted that she was flabbergasted by his text, but chose to respond because he was being genuinely nice.
Alexsa decided to clear the air and explained why she responded to her ex, “I understand if the relationship was toxic then yeah, there’s no reason for communication." "People move on but still have respect for their ex.” “& it’s not about me “building someone for somebody else”. i helped him get out of a rough path, i was obviously meant to be apart of his life but that doesn’t mean i was meant to be his wife nor does it mean that he will cheat on his wife. people fall out of love, ITS LIFE.”
“To the people saying they would cancel the wedding if their ex did what my ex did. in MY opinion, i don’t see why you should... he never flirted with me, he simply thanked me for helping him be a better version of himself, and he wish me love and happiness..,” said Alexsa in a series of tweets.
She ended the thread by saying, “It’s not him rubbing it in my face that he found someone, it’s him thanking me for showing him how to love & appreciating what him and i went through together. it’s not to say that his wife didn’t show him all of that, she obviously did! & it’s not that he wasn’t a great man when we dated because he was/is a great man! we just didn’t work out & that’s fine!!! relationships don’t always end with hating the person. it just simply doesn’t work out!”
It’s amazing to watch someone flourish right before your eyes and Alexsa decided to focus on that aspect of her relationship rather than the bitter way in which it ended. Would you be this accepting about an ex messaging you? Or would you ignore him or even worse, block him all over again?
