I heard this statement the other day, tell me what you think. Thanks in advance for your responses.

People who are hurt seek healing from others.
People who are offended, seek to hurt others.

  • Makes a lot of sense to me. Maybe not in all situations, but I've seen it enough,and no I don't mean on here, I mean in real life to know that it is in fact, very true at times.

  • It sounds like something coming from a selectively rational person, I never seek to hurt anyone, for any reason, and when I am hurt I only seek healing from within myself not others......

  • I do not agree at all. I hate statements like that which clump all people together.

  • I disagree. Because I don't think most people ever "seek" to hurt others. I do however believe that our unresolved anger and hurt does sometimes cause us to hurt others although I don't believe it's something we enjoy or intend.

  • Well that is interesting. I'm sure it happens sometimes but not always. I don't think that every bigot out there was badly hurt by someone else in their life.

  • I can see how it might ring true in some cases and false in others. There are those who hurt because they are hurt and by hurting others they make themselves feel better temporarily, and there are those who when offended merely turn the other cheek and let it roll, as they often figure those who offended tehm have been hurt by others.

  • Well it's not true for me, but I guess it could be true for other people.

  • Sounds like it's someone trying to rationalize why it's ok when they're upset but not ok when other people are upset.
