Personally there are things that can be forgiven, it comes down to what they did, and if they are truly sorry and have the motivation to fix their problems and become a better person out of it.
Not everyone is perfect, and some people do things out of fear, or insecurities. Not saying what they did is right, depending what they did, but not everyone has the same reasons for what they did.
There are things however I cannot forgive, like if someone cheats on me with someone else, that to be is one of the ultimate in betrayals.
I'm a very forgiving and understanding person, but there are things I do not forgive.3
