hi friend, i think he meant that by doing wrong you damage yourself and will have great wrongs done to you , on the other hand by suffering wrongs you have right on your side and have the moral high ground

I agree with what you said. Doing wrong you don't just hurt the person you wronged, you hurt yourself and those around you. Suffering a wrong done to you, you can get over it and move on, while if you wrong someone you live with that fact that you harmed someone.

I think he meant that a person who suffers will be consoled while a wrong-doer will have to live with the evil he has done, and for him there is no consolation.
