Having siblings can be a challenge because they could be your best friend or your worst enemy. Arguments could lead to physical fights, but you wouldn’t want anyone else to hurt them. When the world burns down to the ground, your sibling will forever stick with you. This is why we were so touched when an older brother shared to Twitter how he kept the letters his younger sister wrote for him.
Aaron Santos was a big, strong, masculine older brother who wasn’t afraid to share what he felt when he received a letter from his younger sister. His Twitter thread became viral and was loved by so many netizens because it showed how precious a sibling’s love can be.
The young man admitted that he was the strict type of kuya and it would often cause him to butt heads with his sister Althea. Luckily, he had been receiving letters from her ever since they were small. Despite sharing only two, we shared Aaron’s happiness at knowing that his sister understood that everything he did was to protect her.
“Sarap sa pakiramdam makita na habang lumalaki siya naiintindihan niya kung bakit ako strict sakanya.“
Despite this though, the loving older brother only had one regret and it was that he never got the chance to become close to Althea when they were little. But it’s a good thing that nothing is ever too late.
“Ang laking pagkukulang ko lang ay dahil sa sobrang strict ko, hindi na tayo naging close. Pero di pa naman huli ang lahat. Babawi ako sayo mahal na mahal kita.”
Here are some of the netizens’ reactions to the story:
