You might have written letters to your friends and family members, but how many actually write to their fiancée/fiancé's ex, who had once ditched her/him? A London-based man has now made headlines for doing this, that too a thank you note to the ex for walking out of his lady love's life.
In a short writeup posted on his Facebook account, Ryan March from Skegness, thanks his fiancée Karlie Wright's ex-boyfriend for giving him the chance to love her and for helping him become a better husband in future.
"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 [sic]," reads March's Facebook post along with a photo of the couple kissing each other.
The young man also thanks Wright's previous boyfriend for hurting her, which helped her learn a lot about life. March, who promises to treat his love like a queen by supporting her whenever she is in need, states that he will be a partner that her ex failed to become and also lists out little things that he will do to make her happy.
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.
Even though March had posted this on his Facebook account eight months ago, it has made headlines recently and has gone viral with more than 35,000 people sharing it on social media. It has also been shared on the official Facebook page of Love That Matters with more than 21,000 shares, at the time of reporting. Meanwhile, looking at the Facebook pages of the soon-to-be-married couple it is evident that they are having quite a lot of fun together.
March's open letter is inspiring and yes, it is true that we always learn from our mistakes.
