I initially started this blog as a vehicle for healing myself from a recent interaction with a narcissist. Since narcissists don’t have relationships, I was not in a relationship, even though I believed I was.
My journey toward healing has taken me down many roads and to many blogs where I have read some truly uplifting posts, sound advice and received emotional encouragement. I have linked to many of those blogs, and still have more that I need to add to my blogroll.
This blog is not meant to be a paean to my pain and/or healing. It started as a vehicle for my own healing but during my journey I have encountered, through the writings of others, many ideas and thoughts that have given me pause; things that have caused me to step back and think about myself, my own behaviors and the consequences to others of my choices and actions.
As a result, I have begun writing about my thoughts with regard to the lessons I have learned from the writings of others. I have learned more than I thought I knew about love, compassion, kindness and selflessness. I have interacted with some truly spiritual people (thank you Allison!) and learned much from their writings.
My initial goal with this blog has shifted. It is not about me. It is about helping those who I can help. If anything I write here helps even one other person, then my efforts are not in vain.
I have constructed this blog to be a safe place for anyone to vent, to present their own thoughts, comment, and agree or disagree with my own writings.
