Redditor ohmyDIY posted a link entitled Got dumped this morning via text while driving to work. Was gonna have a terrible day until my boss did something awesome. Happy v-day everyone, a few hours ago.
The post is basically about how the Redditor’s boyfriend, who broke up with her in the morning before she left for work and she felt terrible about it when her boss gave a heart-warming and beautiful Valentine’s Day gesture and a note.
The message in that note lightened up the Redditor’s day and then she shared it with other people on Reddit:
The note reads:
It is so cliché but it is so true. When one door closes, another opens . At the time the door closes, we are sad and grieve the opportunity. We wonder ‘why me’. One day, we see why that door closed- it closed to make us ready and available for another opportunity. One day you will thank him for not being in your life because you will find something that better suits you. In December 2011, my best friend/boyfriend passed away. I never thought I would be ready to date, never find someone as sweet as him. In my case, one day I was ready and one amazing man walked into my life. Nothing against my deceased ex- he will always be me but my new guy Scott is a much better fit for me. Keep your chin up. Any man would be lucky to have such a great girl as yourself. It truly is his loss. You are beautiful inside and out and deserve nothing but the best. If you need anything let me know.
You are better off- I promise!
The note has over 48,635 views and Redditors can’t help but appreciate the boss and her uplifting message to ohmyDIY. Many who have read the post are sharing their bitter experiences of their love life.
I, too, was broken up with via text message. I gave up a lot for him, and that was the thanks I got. I miss him, and I still care about him, but I also accept now that it was the best thing he could have done for me. I hope you are able to make peace with your break up as well.
I love when people do nice things for each other; it doesn't cost much but can bring so much happiness.
I'm in Chicago AND my girlfriend of 2.5 years dumped me via fb message. We have so much in common!
Creepiness aside, hope you feel better. Seems like there are break ups going all around right now, at least with my friends.
This is very similar to my last break up. I'm 19 and he's 28, and he dumped me by simply changing his Facebook relationship status to "single". I was briefly shocked and upset- then I realized that if that's the way he wanted to end a 2 year relationship that I was so much better off without him. It just made me sure of my fear that he was a perpetual man-child (in more ways than just that).
Valentine’s Day is just round the corner and this note must have made everyone happy and contented since it gives us a message that love eventually enters our life even if we think it never will.
