Dearest Pie Maker,
You have a strong heart. You can do this; just keep your focus and don't be so hard on yourself. I'm sure you know there are enough people in this world to do that for you.
LIVE YOUR VALUES!
You have a battle, tears and a journey ahead. You must begin.
Take care of yourself so you can be the rock Piper needs, Mama Lioness.
Imperative, must do.
Live as if.
Quit trying to change him. If that is who he is then that is who he is: focus, focus, focus. No one is going to do it for you. No one is going to "save you" so get over it and do it yourself. Stop asking for his help. Stop talking altogether and just keep doing.
Get smart. Get ready because here YOU go. You must begin or it's never going to happen for you; get your knowledge and go.
Please dear, it's time for action. It's time to cut your heart out and shove it down your throat. You can't afford to be your Pollyanna self.
Get real. Plan. Absorb. Do IT.
Quit investing in everyone else and start investing in yourself.
