    An open letter...
    Monday, January 7, 2008
    This morning I woke up hoping for a good day. Later on, I found myself answering an anonymous call. I didn't recognize the voice, but when the caller introduced herself..It finally rang a bell. I don't want to elaborate on what the call was about, just that I was judged incorrectly. It turns out that someone had misunderstood me. I tried to correct the notion, but I wasn't at the right place to do so(I just came from a meeting).

    I always thought that having friends was one of the greatest gifts that a person could have. I was always thankful for the gift of friendship. However, sometimes (most of the time in my case) the gift of friendship is always misinterpreted as something more(especially with men). I was shocked when I received the call. First and foremost, I never had any intention of being more than just a friend. Secondly, I never recall of writing any word/s conveying that I had interest in having more than friendship. Thirdly, I have a name and a reputation to take care of(I'm a Filipina and I have my values).

    I risk a lot in baring my soul here but I am taking that risk... if only to save my wounded pride. I have been hurt by what happened, as this has not been the first time that I have been accused of something I didn't do nor had any intention of doing. At this point I am trying to convince myself that friendship is indeed a gift. It's surprising how you wake up one day and suddenly realize that you might have been living in a lie(friendship being a gift I mean). I shall partially take the blame for being naive and letting my guard down... If believing that having friends is a fault then I shall take the blame. But I will not sit in the sidelines when you judge my character based on whatever it is you want to believe. If only you took the time to understand everything then maybe you could have gotten to know me better. Unfortunately, it was misconstrued as something deeper than what it really is...that "kuya" was all it ever was.

    Lastly, let this be an open letter(you know who you are)..to defend myself and my reputation.
    I am not expecting any explanation whatsoever..I have not done anything wrong because if I did I wouldn't be writing this. I seldom end a friendship, but if I shall serve as a threat or hindrance to any reconciliation...then I have to go..

    Let me be just a memory of someone you had passed along during your life's journey....

      Friends do come in special package. Some of them are good enough to be enjoy, some of them are unfortunately not.

      But if there is a mistake or misunderstanding, friends should always work it out. They are your friends right? :D

      @ blucrystaldude - indeed you are right in saying that friends come in special packages. I get what you mean when you say that if we are indeed friends then maybe we should work it out...i hope readers would forgive me and just understand when I can be this stubborn to say that at this point I have to be firm with my decision of leaving things as they are...i know it would be selfish to say that my world would be a little bit more peaceful without thinking of the insecurities of other people and blaming things on me.

      go girl! sis manilenya is right, you know urself better. let go of these crappy people. yes it really hurts to let go of a friend (if he/she's really worthy to be called that), but that's for better.
      many people in the world are sooooo narrow-minded, so just bear with them.hehe. at least you can now see you're maturing :D

      @ ate malinesky thank you! thank you!(with matching bow). i'd like to think that i'm getting better at making my decisions... mahirap kung tumatanda ako ng paurong..baka puro tadyak, suntok at batok sa sarili ang magawa ko.. ahehehehe

    About Me

    Name: RJ
    Home: Baguio City, Philippines
    About Me: I'm pretty much normal and sane. Much like anybody I believe that each and every person is unique, with their strengths and weaknesses. Thus, everyone should be given a chance to prove themselves. I stand firm with my convictions, but that doesn't necessarily mean that nobody can prove me wrong, I have learned that one is entitled to his or her own opinion. Just the same, you won't usually see me standing in the sidelines waiting for somebody to prove a point. I guess this is the foremost reason why this blog was created... And so I leave it all up to you to read between the lines..and begin to know me with the way I express myself through my writings.. :)
