Another Reddit user wrote, “… I don’t think this is a cause for celebration, though. Becca is likely mourning a relationship and someone who she for a while thought she was gonna spend her life with. I think if you like her at all, don’t make her feel bad by making her feel like she wasted her love and this time in her life on Garrett. Lift her up and assure her she’ll be okay, that life has a different path for her that’ll turn out great.”
