Most of us have all written letters to a family member, a friend, an ex, or a lover, but have you ever come across a thank you letter written to one of a fiancée/fiancé’s ex, who had once ditched her/him?
Meet Ryan March, a UK-based tattoo artist who wrote a thank you letter to fiance’s ex-boyfriend post-breakup! And, he made headlines for giving a wonderful message to all the boys.
In the letter to his fiancée Kalie Wright’s ex-boyfriend, March thanked the man for letting her go of his fiancée’s life and hurting her, and also for giving him the opportunity for finding her and appreciating her way her ex couldn’t.
Everyone get ready with a tissue box. Here is what he wrote, read it to be swooned!
“To the man who let her go,
Thank you. Thank you for walking out of her life, for leaving her. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to love her, do things that would make her happy, to really keep her. Thank you for hurting her. If not, she wouldn’t have learned something valuable.
I will try my best to not cause her pain, for it hurts me to see her cry. I will do all the things you failed to do for her like be there for her when she feels so alone, prioritize her and not make her feel like she is just an option, listen to her stories, rants and complaints no matter how bizarre or cliche they might be. Give her time and affection even when she is not asking for it.
I will take care of the girl you failed to appreciate. I will love the girl you took for granted. I will do anything to keep her and make her stay. I will love her for all that she is, and will support her in anything that she wants to be. I will be the partner you failed to become for her. I will be the man who will never make the same mistake that you did.
I will never let her go.”
Really, who wouldn’t want a life partner who would listen to her, prioritize her and also take you seriously? I bet March’s girlfriend feels so grateful to her previous boyfriend for letting her go, too.
Everything is not always rosy in a relationship. Many a time, people who are together ultimately realize that they are poles apart and they want different things from life and part ways.
Everyone has a different reason for not wanting to be in a relationship, and many factors contribute to its demise. Often, break-ups happen because both the partners fail to each other’s expectations and instead of being happy they end up hurting one.
Love and relationships are highly complicated, it’s not so easy to appreciate and accept a person as he/she is, with all their virtues and flaws. But, when people find the ones they think they wholeheartedly love, this is exactly what happens. March’s open letter is truly an eye-opener for all the guys out there who hurt and ditch their girlfriends.
P.S.: If you find someone in your life, or if you have been lucky to have already someone in your life, who loves you as much as March does, then don’t ever let them go! Love, love and love!
Just remember a thank you letter can do a lot of tricks.
