Don’t wait for years for anyone who hurt you to “make it up to you”.

Don’t wait for years for anyone who hurt you to “make it up to you” and keep your old wounds from healing. Waiting for them to change is not the answer. They may never change. Inner peace is found by changing yourself, not the people who hurt you. And you change yourself for yourself, for your joy, your serenity, your peace of mind, understanding, compassion, laughter, and your bright future that you will get.

  3. If you’ve already waited for years for someone “to make it up to you”, then they may never make it up to you. You just have to accept that no matter what you do or say to them, they won’t change themselves, if they are too stubborn to change. However, even though they will not change, it doesn’t mean that you can’t change yourself. Sometimes you need to change yourself by not being around people that don’t have your best interests at heart. You shouldn’t just let other people drain you by taking your happiness, joy, and self-esteem away. If you continue to just let them completely
    drain you, then they will , because they know that they’re getting away with it by you not standing
    up for yourself…I learned this the hard way…

  4. Virginia Detroyer I agree with u…. One have to take stand for oneself if repeatedly hurted by someone, don’t let them do it again, just move on stop talking to dem……………….give them silent treatment..but on ths same time keeping ur mind cool, just let them do wat dey want, just sit back n watch. never ever react.

  5. It doesn’t work. these are just beautiful words intelligently arranged to make a paragraph. If this was the only truth then why when some one following it doesn’t find peace of mind. Like ever human being is unique so are the problems & their solutions……… my view.

  6. I wish this was true …but I am evidence of real pain & hurt & can’t move on …I’m desperate God knows but I can’t …It is so easy to say .harder to do .especially when your controlled & scared….dont judge …
