A Woman Got a Text From Her Ex That is Giving Us The Feels

People don’t always stay in our lives forever. Mostly, they enter our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.

A woman has discovered the role she played in her ex’s life, as he chose to send her a heartfelt text the day before his wedding.

The text was sent with the bride-to-be’s knowledge and approval, and expressed gratitude to Alexsa Sanchez Aguilar for teaching him how to love — a trait his new wife will benefit from for life.

“Thank you for always encouraging me, thank you for keeping me out of trouble, thank you for the times you took care of me when I was sick, and depressed,” her ex wrote. “If you haven’t already, I hope you one day find love. If you loved me that much when we were young I can only imagine how strong and powerful your love is now.”

Aguilar said that it warmed her heart that she had helped him become a better version of himself, and decided to post the text “to show that just because things don’t work out with someone, that doesn’t mean you should have hate towards them. Regardless of everything, you were meant to be a part of that person’s life, and them, yours.”
