  • I have regretted it repeatedly. That is why I believe that forgiveness is earned and not given. If they are worthy of my forgiveness then they will have earned it. They can even earn my forgiveness ahead of time. What is important is that they show the effort that they deserve to be forgiven.

    So often we are taught to just forgive, because that is the right think to do. That is horrible advice meant to make things easier on everyone else, but not the person that was wronged.

  • I'm generally a very forgiving person. I can overlook most things and forgive people very easily. I'm not a pushover though, so those who know me , know that I'd never forgive them for the same mistake twice. I have boundaries, and I won't allow anyone to cross them.

    The only thing I'd never forgive is any kind of betrayal or intentional deceit. So I can't say I've regretted forgiving anyone.

  • Worse, in a way. They were utterly in the wrong, and I didn't forgive them... I acted as if I were in the wrong, and prostrated myself before them begging for an apology.

    When you have very few friends, and one person has been in your life for over 20 years, you will do a lot to try to stop that friendship from ending.
    They didn't feel the same. After things got progressively worse, and I continued to apologize and try to make things better, they decided to just cut me off. Friends for 26 years, and in the end, it meant nothing to them.

  • Forgiveness is for yourself not for them. Anger and resentment is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. I just stop giving them my time and attention.

  • Never. God demands it of us. Though, forgiving someone never includes a free pass to disrespect me.

  • Yes, I think there is one person that comes to mind that I forgave for acting the way she did. She was fine for a while, but then went right back to her old ways. Oh well.

    • If you truly forgave them, it often gives them another opportunity to hurt you again. If they hurt you again, then you can regret it.

  • No I can always take it back 😄
