Really, it wasn’t an apology. It was an admission of guilt written through a filter of PRglish (I wonder if it was a recommendation from legal counsel but whatever). All its done is confirm my validity to be angry with him. Beyond that, what’s done is done. And at this point anything more involving myself, my friends and him are personal and involve our own histories.
I won’t blame anyone for wanting nothing to do with him nor should anyone feel obligated to. At this point, all I would want is to remind everyone that while the public space is more or less done with Nick, there are a lot of us who still have a bit of history with him. For some its intensely negative, and for others its become confusing and frustrating now, and I want to remind folk that those affected will need a lot of time to process and decide how they handle things.
With that in mind, please remember to be kind and supportive to those who are going to need that time to sort things out, and respect that it may take a lot time on how they want to handle it, if only for the sake of their mental and emotional health.
