I Don't Believe In Fixing Any One

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 46 People

    I find people who think it's their duty in life

    to "fix" other people extremely annoying and self righteous. I suppose some people never learn, or have to learn the hard way all their lives, that no one can be fixed. I don't think there's anyone out there (no sane person at least) that's looking for someone to "fix" them or...

    I Do Believe That Now.....

    However, I used to try to fix. I would see something inside them wanting to get out and I would try to fix that, only to lose myself and forget about fixing myself. All we can do is give them the encouragement and they have to do the rest either by not changing or changing...

    Just Their Soul

    I can't fix a person because I am not a doctor and do not have any inclination to spend my time working on organic matter that will be dust one day anyways. I mean someone has to do it, but I fix souls or at least make a conscious effort to try.

    He Was Not My Responsibility

    When I was in my previous relationship, I was so convinced that I could "fix" my boyfriend. I really believed that I could change him and make him stop treating me so badly. When he became depressed, I believed it was up to me to make all of his problems go away. When he killed...
