Let me start this off by saying i love you... i really do. You probably now choose not to believe that because for once i did not come running to your rescue. For once i allowed you to sit in the mess you had made and find your own way out of it without me. And you did, but not by your own cost of course.. No that would be to logical. You manipulated another sweet soul to bail you out of trouble this time. Someone i also love and have tremendous respect for. I just hope he doesnt get hurt by you again in this process. You will probably tell everyone how horrible i am and how i turned my back on you and maybe people will believe you. Correction, maybe people who dont know me will believe you. But as far as our family and most of your friends they will look at it for what it is. That i finally got tired.... as they told me i would. I got tired of being your savior when you had left me in the dirt so often. O got tired of defending your wrongs. I got tired of making excuses for you when i knew you were in the wrong. I got tired of being the youngest out of us yet always being the one to take care of you. So when youre bad mouthing me to who ever will listen i hope you remember who was there every time you called. I hope you remember who protected you against others scrutiny. I hope you remember who has stood toe to toe with anyone for you. Then i hope you remember when you stole my pain medication when i was screaming in pain on my mother in laws couch, i hope you remember who lied to me about stealing my money off my debit card on multiple occasions, i hope you remember who lied to me about something no one should ever do, i hope you remember how EVERY TIME i confided in you i would find you'd told someone. You're 33 years old i am no longer your protector. Its time to grow up, that spot you left open with your lies and deciet has now been filled by the people that actually need my time. Your children, my children, the family i make for myself. Once again i will say it. I do love you with every inch of my heart but i refuse to have it broken by you again.
