*Although this letter is directed at a specific person, I believe that everyone can and should follow the advice within it.*
Dear Friend’s Ex,
While most of my family and most of my friends know I have a blog, I have never given anyone the link. I don’t see that changing in the future, so I know that you’re probably never going to read this. Nevertheless, I just need to get some things off my chest.
Please keep in mind that the advice I’m about to offer is not being given with malicious intent. I just want you and my friend to be able to move on with your lives.
You and your friends need to stop posting cruel remarks on my friend’s Facebook. For some reason, my friend did not defriend you after the breakup. This was an opportunity for you to practice self-control, but instead you have taken the opportunity to make my friend feel even worse than they already do. Why? From what I heard, you wanted to breakup more than they did. Why would you breakup with someone and then continue to insult them on their Facebook?
Although you are no longer dating my friend, I don’t hate you. However, I dislike that you are deliberately hurting someone I care about, even though the relationship is over and you should both be trying to move on.
I know my friend would appreciate it if you would stop this immature behavior and act like an adult.
