When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That’s the message he is sending.

Thich Nhat Hanh (via hermionejg)

There are people who suffer who do not make other people suffer. 

It is not my responsibility to be anyone’s savior, especially not if they make me suffer.

That said anyone who reaches out after lashing out deserves my sympthay and patience. Been there done that, made and kept great friendships 🙂
