reakups are never easy, especially after long-term relationships. You're lucky if you can part ways on civil terms, let alone as friends.
One young woman just taught a masterclass in classy breakups with her Facebook post, which went viral for its incredible grace.
Get ready to cry.
Karla Bonifacio and her boyfriend Gio, from the Philippines, were together for over seven years before they broke up.
But instead of being bitter about it, Karla wrote an incredibly touching post thanking Gio for their time together.
In the post, she shared photos of some of their most treasured memories, like this one from their high school graduation.
While the breakup is clearly extremely emotional for Karla, she focuses on the great times they had together, the love they shared, and the memories she will have forever.
She shows us that breakups, while devastating, don't have to be ugly.
They can be celebrations of the beauty of love.
"It actually took so much courage to post this," Karla wrote.
“But for the past 7 years & 7 months, people witnessed the love story that was Gio & Karla.”
They grew up together, changed together, discovered love together.
“We did a lot of things together,” Karla wrote. “From sneaking out during high school & lying to our parents that we have to do projects after school so that Gio & I can go to the mall — with only 300 pesos that we saved up from our school allowance. We’d eat in food courts & share one iced tea. But it didn’t matter actually because we were happy.”
Their relationship even stayed strong when they moved and attended different colleges.
“He would pick me up in school, he would help me with my projects, he would take me out to eat after a hectic day. He was all I see as I march my graduation. And I can finally say, we made it,” Karla wrote.
