I seem to be a magnet that people come to for advice and solace. I have succeeded in business. After retirement I began to paint (a wonderful exercise to soothe the soul). I went to university when I was 60 (to keep the gray matter healthy) and earned my associate degree in theology. I have always been an overachiever. Sometimes it is a good thing and sometimes not so much. Lastly, and I think most importantly, is the ability to love and be kind to those who come into my life.

“I often ask myself is how on earth is it that we empaths can survive under the domination of a narcissist? How is it that we do not become bitter and cruel as adults, with the role models
we survived under? How is it that being an empath stays with us and cannot be beaten down? We always get up again and keep on going, being an empath still. I also wonder, if I had not been so tightly wrapped up in my mother’s web and she had let me fly instead, what kind of person would I have been, then?”
Donna G. Bourgeois, Life with Ollie: The story of an only child of a single narcissistic parent

“Life has not been able to break me and it will not break you. Stand tall for you are loved, you are enough, you are able, and in the end we will survive.”
Donna G. Bourgeois, Life with Ollie: The story of an only child of a single narcissistic parent

“Empaths have to be careful not to internalize others’ feelings, as this can cause them to feel anxious, sad, or even depressed. It can leave the empath feeling drained or exhausted. They must learn to set boundaries so as not to let toxic people drain them dry.”
Donna G. Bourgeois, Life with Ollie: The story of an only child of a single narcissistic parent

“We cannot change the past, but we can change our attitude toward it. Uproot guilt and plant forgiveness. Tear out arrogance and seed humility. Exchange love for hate—thereby, making the present comfortable and the future promising.
—Maya Angelou”

“Turn on Your Inner Light and Illuminate the World”
Lali A. Love, Heart of a Warrior Angel

“Love makes us wake up in the morning with a sense of purpose and a flow of creative ideas. Love floods our nervous system with positive energy, making us far more attractive to prospective employers, clients, and creative partners. Love fills us with powerful charisma, enabling us to produce new ideas and new projects, even within circumstances that seem to be limited. Love leads us to atone for our errors and clean up the mess when we've made mistakes. Love leads us to act with impeccability, integrity, and excellence. Love leads us to serve, to forgive, and to hope. Those things are the opposite of a poverty consciousness; they're the stuff of spiritual wealth creation.”
Marianne Williamson, The Law of Divine Compensation: On Work, Money, and Miracles

“Empaths have to be careful not to internalize others’ feelings, as this can cause them to feel anxious, sad, or even depressed. It can leave the empath feeling drained or exhausted. They must learn to set boundaries so as not to let toxic people drain them dry.”
