I Don't Believe In Fixing Any One

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 49 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 Hate Them Too....

    The ones who think pretending to like you will be their ticket into "heaven". But I -will- attempt to help someone I actually care about. Usually these are people who I think make a better world... If you are in the circle, then it's a really decent bet that I actually really...

    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.
