95 Entries for “compensate”

  1. He couldn’t compensate for the lack of her skills. They needed her here, or this mission wouldn’t be successful. X ran out the door after her, already planning the usual come-back-we-need-you-don’t-do-this speech in his head. Already ready to drag her back by force if he had to.

  2. Compensate is when you give up something you like for someone else, even though you like what you like, and they like something else. It’s a cute concept, especially when in love with someone.

  3. You say that whatever I do will compensate for all the time you’ve spent on me. That it’ll be worth it. That you don’t need anything in return. Don’t you realize though that it’s not for you? It’s for me. I can’t live knowing that I haven’t done anything in return.

  4. I wondered if the success would compensate the years I worked and sacrificed. It’s so easy to lose sight in what matters… But I guess that’s what happens when you want to change the world and leave an impact on those that follow you. With a world full of so many shadow people, we need some to step out in the light to lead the way.

  5. Compensate for my will to appreciate, if I’ve lost it
    Compensate for the direction I appeal to reason and when my heart fails to recognize itself,
    tell it so
    Compensate for my lack of ability to determine how much ability I have
    Compensate for freedom of speech when silence is all that is needed
    Compensate for the losing benefits of desiring something that is not yet to be,
    and losing sight of reality

  6. The woman had learned to compensate for the weaknesses in her life. Not all of them, of course, were of her own doing. Her husband’s weaknesses — or weakness (If only he’d quit drinking) — had cost her so very much. Time. True happiness. Companionship. Opportunity to flourish in her community. So she had compensated by applying her time and energy to her profession. She spent copious amounts of time and energy at work. She enjoyed it. It was a place and a situation in which she could succeed. Her colleagues at work only knew the positive side of her life. And she continuously strove to polish that until it shined.

  7. “You will be compensated for your services,”
    Tamsin blinked, nonplussed. “Money’s not really the problem here, honey. The whole ‘asking me to murder someone’ thing, now, THAT’S a problem area,”
    She frowned. “I don’t understand; I was told you-”
    “Wait, wait, TOLD?” she asked, crossing to the window and peeking through the shades. “You said you wanted to kill someone and they sent you HERE? Who?”

  8. I used to sit in drivers ed, ready to learn all about safety and with rapt attention.
    Then I met my teacher. Scott was lazy, racist, perverted, and overall nauseating. He hated his job, hated teenagers, and hated his life. He used to call monster trucks “compensation vehicles,” and laugh with that chocking cough.
    He taught me more than any other drivers ed teacher could.

  10. Things don’t compensate.
    Okay, maybe a little, they do. But never fully, and the best thing to do is just to let go, because nothing can ever compensate for a thing the way that thing would.
    But if the thing was there, there would be no need to compensate, and life would be alright.
    Or just simply boring.

  12. If you compensate

    enough to inflate
    your mental to the top

    to Love
    L as in Lisa,
    L as in Love.

    empty laughter and lazy circles.

So she followed her mother meekly out of the room, but all the while her fingers pinched her palms, plotting murder.

No need to compensate for anything!

  34. Seemingly charmed, George had to work hard to compensate his family for his absence. The influx of gifts was constant. They cleared spaces for more flowers, jewellery, toys and games. In April they arrived home one day to find a golden labrador puppy pooping on the doormat. In August the dog was joined by an Andalusian pony who outgrew the back yard within weeks. George sent things he thought would make them happy, but he no longer knew them. He didn’t know if his boy could structure a sentence or throw a curve ball, and he never knew that his baby girl prayed to God very night for Daddy to come home.
