21 People On Why They're Thankful For Their Exes And How A Negative Can Be Turned Into A Positive

"I've come to realize that I'm the most important person in my life."

While breakups are never easy, there can be some good that comes from such experiences.

In fact. some are even thankful for their exes. Using Whisper — an app that allows users to anonymously share their stories — some people confessed the positive things they gained from their exes and/or the breakup process, whether that be learning more about themselves, what to look for in a partner, or, perhaps more importantly, what not to look for. 

For example, one user said their ex helped them fine-tune their "bullshit meter," while another person said their relationship with their ex made them more "comfortable talking to other people."

The confessions are further proof that a positive mindset can transform even the most negative experiences into something good.
