Is it easy for you to forgive others?

Before answering think of someone you really had a hard time with and ask yourself if you really ever forgave them and explore how difficult it was to do so. I am not asking if you can ignore slights from others who are complete strangers.

  • Yes and No!

    I forgive people easily and let them make mistakes over and over again. The average person would not forgive someone after they make the same mistake three or so times but I forgive them even if they make it like 20, 30 if not like 50 times but after that I make it so hard to forgive. I guess because I give them more opportunities to make mistakes then others so once it hits the limit then it's incredibly hard to forgive. I'm more than happy to get them out of my life.

    Don't know if that made sense. It was kinda hard to explain

  • Yes, for the most part. I think I'm a fairly forgiving person. I don't hold grudges and I'm usually able to get over things pretty quickly. That doesn't mean I forget though if someone hurts me, it just means I am willing to move on and forgive them because I don't want to hold onto bad feelings.

  • Forgiveness is required only when painful events occurs. Humans learn best by negative reinforcement, specifically to avoid repeatable events.

    Which makes forgiveness or a re-establishment of trust considerably difficult when the person has already been subconscious/consciously identified as a risk/threat.

    Relationships are similar, which makes true forgiveness difficult. Complicated issues like forgiveness are as simple as a fork in a socket.

    I don't think it is forgiving which is so difficult, I think it is what happens next, accepting.

  • I can forgive, but I never forget. I forgive because I don't have it in my heart to hold so much hatred. I'm just not good at staying mad for long periods of time. I break down after a while. I never forget what a person has done though and I certainly keep it on record in case they screw up again.

  • I guess it depends on what they did. Overall I'm a very forgiving person. There's certain things that I will never forget. If they hurt me for example. I'm the type of person that can forgive but will never forget.

  • Sometimes I think that I should not forgive those who hurt me emotionally or financially, but everytime I forget to keep it in mind. So forgiveness on my part has become regular and normal.

  • My early life was filled with dysfunction, so my choices were learn forgiveness or spontaneously combust with rage. It can be very difficult, though, and take plenty of time.

    Though forgiveness isn't the same as forgetting and being the exact same as if an incident didn't happen. Especially if the person is still a danger to you physically or emotionally.
