Dear Ate Charo,

 Thank you for considering this letter of mine. I'm writing about Ben.
 We're in our twenties and both work in Makati. In fact, we used to be
  officemates. I've known him for almost two years and all the time, I've
  been in-love with him, although we are just friends and he has a
  girlfriend
  he intends to marry.
 
  Ate Charo, I can't help but fall in love with him. He's perfect! He's
  responsible, intelligent, resourceful, thoughtful, loving, sweet, caring,
  upright, kind, family-oriented, and a God-fearing individual. His good
  looks are just an added bonus. I can't believe such a man still exists
  today and I will forever be thankful for his friendship.

It is a pain to be so in-love with him because he and his girlfriend are
  perfect for each other and are so happy being together. I don't know if
  he's aware of my feelings for him, but winning his heart, I think, is out
  of the question. His girlfriend is too precious for him. Losing her
  would
  truly hurt him, and I don't want to see him in pain. I know,
  however, that a part of me wishes he would reciprocate my love, but he's
  just too good for me. He deserves someone better, like the girl he has
  now.
 
  Knowing he's happy with her is enough consolation for me. I want his
  happiness even if it would mean my own despair. God knows how much I'm
  suffering. Writing this letter alone is already a torture. I've been
  trying very hard to forget him. I've done ways I know to free myself.
  Pero ang kulit talaga ng puso ko, ayaw sumunod. Ate Charo, I haven't seen
  or talked with him for a long time and I thought his absence would somehow
  cool down the feeling, but it hasn't. I don't want to miss him, but I do
  miss him terribly. How can I forget him?

Whenever I see a place, a thing, or a situation, my mind automatically
  associates it with him. His memories occupy most of my waking and
  sleeping
  hours. His face pops into my mind in the middle of my lunch, when I'm
  talking with my friends, cleaning my house, or just doing something which
  has nothing to remind me of him. Odd, but true. I'm not bitter, Ate. I
  don't blame myself, him, nor God for this situation. As a matter of fact,
  I'm thankful. Painfully odd as it is, this situation has made me the
  mature
  person I am now. But I can't help ask myself why should someone fall for
  another when they are not meant for each other? 
Why Ate Charo? 
Why? 

You know Ate, whenever I pray, I always ask God to help me let go of this
  love. I just want to feel the same way he feels for me... as a friend
  and
  nothing more. I know I can get through this because I believe that God
  wouldn't give me something He knows I couldn't handle. Someday I will be
  able to smile again without being hurt when I remember him. God has His
  reason for all of these and until I know the reasons, I want to hear words
  from you. Attached is my picture to show my sincerity and let you decide
  if
  am really not meant for his love.
 
  Please Ate Charo, help me.
 
  Sincerely,

Berta Plak


This was emailed to me by a friend. This is just for fun, although the Thoughtskoto family doesn't subscribe to the idea of making fun with other looks or circumstances.
