I Don't Believe In Fixing Any One

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 47 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I don't believe in evolution, it is a theory full of holes, but more importantly, it can't explain who started it all, and it does not give credit to the creator.
