The Paradoxes of Our Lives - We Hurt Others, When We Are Hurt

It is a known principle that we are victims of victims.

Those who hurt us then, are those who have suffered even more hurt. To hurt another, one must be suffering so much that one cannot look beyond assuaging their own hurt somehow.

Those who hurt pathologically of course need help. But even those are suffering from deep hurt.

Knowing this, we can choose not to get hurt by someone else. We are better off sympathising. Or even as the wise do, help where we can and break the cycle.
