Oh, Yeah. -.-

My ex is an ex, because he misuesed an 'open' relationship, and took it too far. My ex is an ex, because though I was married to him, I was his 'number two' woman. My ex is my ex because he's an a-hole. My ex is my ex because he has no sense of responsibility. My ex is my ex because I cannot, and could not trust him. My ex is an ex, because I made a mistake. My ex is an ex, because I was too young to get married. My ex is my ex because his girl on the side meant too much.

But, you know what?

I'm glad my ex is my ex. Sure, when we split, it was hard. But once he proved to me that I couldn't trust him, and that there was no way he could really love me, by treating me the way he did, I realized he wasn't worth crying over. 

And now, guess what?

Because my ex is my ex, I've had the opportunity to get to know, and fall in love with my fiance. We've had the chance to be together. To grow together, to love together, and to make some semblance of building a family and a home together. I would NOT trade that for the world. 

If I'd never met my ex, I wouldn't have my beautiful son. I wouldn't be woken up by his beautiful smile every morning. I wouldn't have someone to talk about Cars with. I wouldn't have his little hand in mine when we go shopping. I wouldn't have him telling me he loves me. I wouldn't have him telling me I'm his best friend. 

I wouldn't be where I am, if it weren't for my ex. So, though he's a jerk, I should be thanking him. If it weren't for him, I wouldn't be in the wonderful place I am now.

that's very well put. i hate my ex, but he too gave me a beautiful daughter that i love. also, i was able to find a great man after him that loves us and takes care of us the way my ex never could. so you are right. everything happens for a reason, and we all make mistakes and its great to able to learn from them and be able to use it as an example of the good things that can come about from the bad things that have happened in our lives.
