About This Quote

If you spend your time hoping someone will suffer the consequences for what they did to your heart, then you’re allowing them to hurt you a second time in your mind. This quote is one of those quotes that say a lot about a lot. It speaks to the fact that we often do things because we hope other people will suffer as a result, rather than taking responsibility for our own actions. It also speaks to the fact that there are certain things that we simply cannot let happen--and it's important to be willing to stand up for what is right even if that means standing alone.
