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

September 6, 2020

My name is Marcia. I am a 42 year old registered nurse who hails from New Jersey. I am a mother of two children of the human (though sometimes that's questionable too), two children of the doggy kind, and one child of the feline kind. Let me start out by saying this: I am nobody special.

September 6, 2020 was a day of absolute awakening for me. Don't get me wrong, this was many years on the making, as since my divorce from my narcissistic ex, I have been studying narcissism and it's effects on empaths like me. But on  this day in particular, it was like something in me finally looked at my ex and realized exactly what kind of monster I had been dealing with all of these years. You know what finally snapped me into my current thought pattern: seeing him treating his new supply the same way he treated me for many years. Wow, eye opening. Now DONT get me wrong, because this woman was the final catalyst for our divorce, I despise her and the ground she walks on. However, in that moment (details of which will be disclosed at a later date), on his front lawn, at my sons birthday party, tears strewn down her face, I felt SORRY for her. Not because I care about her feelings (I am human after all, and I do think she's currently living her karma for dealing with a married man, but I digress), but because I myself used to be her. The many times he embarrassed me in front of my and his families, the many times he didn't come to my rescue when he should have, the many times he knowingly caused me pain and smirked while I wept, I realized she was ME. And for that, I felt sorry for her. I wanted to actually hug her and tell her it will be okay, but let's not push it. I'm an eMpath but I still got my boundaries after all. More on this and many of my experiences with my narc, who I finally escaped from after over 20 years of covert abuse, soon come. But for now, we are here.

I started out this excerpt by saying "I'm nobody special," but you know what, that couldn't be farther from the truth. I AM somebody special. I am a survivor of narcissistic abuse. I survived said abuse by educating myself on narcissists, empaths, and every other term in between, and I came out on top! I've found a freedom that I cannot even explain, and I want you and any other person who is experiencing, or has experienced this same type of abuse to know that things WILL get better. Education is liberating. My motto: I once was lost, but now I'm EDUCATED. And with that, #educatedempathsunite #itsanewday
