To Whom it May Concern,
I greatly appreciate the anonymous letter and I’m honored that someone out there thinks kindly of me.
It’s a great comfort in life to know that not all people are bad, and not all secret thoughts are evil.
Sometimes I’m tempted to think otherwise in this city. Men and women seem to have lost all compassion and honesty is a virtue left for fairy tales.
But if ever there was something from fairy tales that is meant for real life, it is honesty.
So, I have to be honest now and admit that I’m a long way from being suited for a decent woman. I have my flaws. The weight of them keeps me from sleep some nights. But we fortunate few have a Savior who delights in taking our burdens, and is most strong when we are weakest!
I’ll take my cares and my personal dramas with me when I leave this city in a few days. I regret that you had to find out this way, but I am moving away. My apartment is to be turned over at the end of this month, and I’ll leave this town with very few good memories…some of which your anonymous letter has provided.
I hope God blesses, and protects you as well, and I would add, furthermore, that he keeps you from being burdened with guys like me in the future! ; )
