One of the most important things that we often seek at the end of a relationship is closure.

But rarely do we get an answer that feels anywhere close to that, and we're left wondering what happened.


So when one woman recently received an unexpected text from an ex of hers, it left her stunned. Especially considering that he sent it to her the day before his wedding.

Alexsa Sanchez Aguilar shared the emotional text exchange that left her "speechless" on Twitter:

It all started innocently enough:

And then her ex laid it all out there:

Not exactly the kind of thing you expect to receive from an ex who you've lost touch with, let alone the day before they're about to tie the knot with another person.

Many people were genuinely impressed with Aguilar's ex.




Admit it—you totally thought this was how the message would go.

But there were a lot of people who were kinda weirded out by the whole thing.




Aguilar explained to one commenter just how close she was with her ex and why his honesty wasn't all that unexpected.

And for those wondering, Aguilar did respond.

Here's what she said:

In an interview with Buzzfeed, Aguilar revealed why she shared the texts, saying:

"I wanted 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."

Now that sounds like some solid advice.

The book No Regrets: How Loving Deeply and Living Passionately Can Impact Your Legacy Forever, available here, tells the story of one person's decision to live regret free.

"After facing the possibility of death, Robin Bertram took inventory of her life, and realized she was given a second chance: a chance to choose joy and to live life with no regrets."

If you don't have any experience with construction, it can be pretty interesting to watch those reality HGTV shows (I know I'm addicted at this point). Some of the best episodes can be the one's where they open up the walls to find the builder didn't do anything right, causing a huge blow to the budget. The drama!

As someone who doesn't know much about building, and is dreaming of homeownership, Redditor Vast_Recognition_682 asked a question I wish I had thought of first.

Unless you've been a member of the armed forces, you may only know drill sergeants as uncompassionate leaders who yell at privates all the time.

Years ago I had a classmate who was a total daredevil... so much so that he would often injure himself. He once drove a bike in the direction of oncoming traffic, just for the hell of it. He got out of that episode unscathed––luckily. By contrast, I prefer keeping all my limbs, and still have them all. I wonder where he is now. Hopefully not too banged up. I did do some stuff unwittingly––like the time I stuck a fork into an electrical socket. I thankfully wasn't shocked too much. I was young and naive.

People told us all about the dangerous things they did when they were younger after Redditor Not-an-Ocelot asked the online community,

"What's the most dangerous thing you did as a kid without realizing?"
