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."

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
