Welcome to the Educated Empath! Come on in, you’re celebrated here!


I owe a lot of people an apology. My relationship with narcissism caused a rift in many a relationship, and I just want to say I’m truly sorry.

To my ex husband, I apologize for what this story may uncover about you. I apologize that this story my paint you on what is considered a “bad light,” but I also apologize that it took me so long to finally uncover your truths. Perhaps if I’d have done this many years ago, you’d have seen how badly you’d hurt me, and adjusted your behavior. I love you. I always will. You are a part of my being.

To every man who tried to date me after my divorce, I apologize. I apologize for not allowing you to love me the way I know I deserve. I apologize for not “letting you in” because I felt all men are alike and I put up a wall to prevent another relationship like the one I just freed myself from.

To my kids, I apologize for allowing myself to be treated so badly for so many years, and giving you a terrible example of a relationship to follow.

To my parents and siblings, I apologize for just sometimes being so mean. I'm better than that, but I was going thru some shit. I appreciate y'all for having my back and sticking by me thru it all. I don't say that enough: I'm sorry, and THANK YOU!

To my ex parents in law, I apologize for  you not ever knowing the real me. What your son portrayed of me was never reality. I apologize for you not knowing better, and getting to know me for me.

To gonzo and the MANY others, I apologize. You didn’t know, girl. I tend to forget that you were dealing with the same people I was, and I’m sorry. You didn’t know.

To my home skillet roger, I apologize for all the sob stories, the ledges you have had to talk me off of....never mind, I ain’t sorry for that. That’s what friends do. And you sir, are a TRUE friend.

To my ex best friend, Shaun Charles, I apologize for allowing the narcissistic relationship I was involved in to ruin a 30 year friendship. I mostly apologize to you  for thinking you were truly my friend, because a real friend would “know better.” I apologize that you couldn’t see thru the nonsense, but then again you were living your own. I’m sorry we’re not friends anymore. I love and miss you more than you will ever understand.

Mostly, I apologize to myself. I apologize to me for not thinking I was better than what I was accepting. Finically, I let it all go. It’s time to move on. It’s time to be me.
