There was a period if time when Bridget did move to Colorado Springs to train. My daughter had just started skating at Skating Club of Wilmington and at one of the club events I spoke to her mother who mentioned the move. Being new to the skating world, it really surprised me and was even more strange to me that her parents would allow her to go alone and stay with another family. Her mom said “this is her dream and we want to do everything possible to help her”. Mom also said that she was going to fly out every two weeks to visit Bridget. I don’t recall how long Bridget stayed in CO or who her coach was while she was there.
… and Coughlin ruined her dream and much more. Oh, I wish for Bridget to get back her inner freedom and spark of life, and confidence...to flourish, to be...
Coughlin's case... certainly it is/was a pathology. A normal man- to more or less extent- do feel remorse after doing something hurtful or wrong to the other human being. He even did not write any note of " I am sorry" for the victims or his own family. Neither he said Ashley sorry those many years ago. A normal individual ( psychologically normal) is willing to change oneself and is able to see what he is doing wrong; a pathological man neither can see his wrong doings or want to change anything.
But they can easily manipulate people around them and left everyone in good impression.
