Twitter user, Bewaji opened up about her past heartbreak on social media, but instead of being bitter that her ex-bae found love without her, she stayed gracious and let them find happiness.
She writes that she was dating a man a few years ago and although they seemed happy, she noticed something was off. He had a best friend who was female. The pair were unusually close and he even had her photo as a screensaver on his computer, Briefly.co.za learned.
Bewaji adds that the friend would even sit on her bae’s lap while she was around.
Knowing that there was no use in competing, Bewaji decided to take the high road, and just leave their lives, saying that you should never stand in the way of love.
Her ex-bae and his ‘best friend’ are now happily married.
Touched by her graciousness, social media felt, Bewaji’s pain and wished her luck in finding her own special person, because her ex was clearly not it.
