The Most Sensible Breakup Letter Ever From An Elementary School Student

Sameera Ehteram
Heartbreak is a painful thing and it does not spare its victims based on age. This is clearly proven in this letter written by Rachel, an elementary school student, who tells her boyfriend Shawn that she is breaking up with him.

Little Girl

Though both Rachel and Shawn are too young to understand the intricacies of love and relationships, she is out to teach her former beau a lesson.

 Shawn had asked Rachel out, but for some reason, never talked to her afterwards. If he thought Rachel was going to take this lying down, he was dead wrong.

You need to git it together or you will never get mareed,’ warns a no-nonsense Rachel.

We can’t blame her really. Shawn needs serious lessons in communication.

Kids often say the cutest things, but what little Rachel says makes a lot of sense as well. We seriously hope Shawn heeds the advice and mend his ways. Shawn just may have a lifelong problem with relationships if he doesn’t and may never ‘git mareed.’

Her words of wisdom in fact remind us of something Michael Ondaatje said in The English Patient:

“You think that you are an iconoclast, but you’re not. You just move, or replace what you cannot have. If you fail at something, you retreat into something else. Nothing changes you.... I left you because I knew I could never change you. You would stand in the room so still sometimes, as if the greatest betrayal of yourself would be to reveal one more inch of your character.”
