Could you forgive a Backstabber?

Lets say a person you trust insults you or talks badly behind your back, or cuts you off for no valid reason etc... Could you forgive that person if they came back?

Could you forgive a Backstabber?

Just curious how to handle backstabbers and traitorous "buddies".

Cya!

  • This is so surprising.. I was actually thinking about posting a question about backstabbers few minutes ago and then I came across your question.

    I was a very forgiving person when I was younger but after experiencing back to back cheating and betrayals, I've learnt one thing and that is to NEVER give a chance to backstabbers. They're just like cheats. Once a cheater, always a cheater. Once a backstabber, always a backstabber. They'll stab you in the back the moment you turn around if you give forgive them and give them another chance.

    So, I don't forgive those kind of people anymore. I've had some backstabber friends and relatives with whom I no longer talk to. I just cut off all the contact. There is a guy on gag whom I used to trust a lot as a friend and respect a lot, but he turned out to be a rat.
    Could you forgive a Backstabber?

    Do I regret not forgiving him? No, because he backstabbed not just me but also my friends. So, I say Good Riddance!

    • Thats surprising and cool, great minds think alike 😄

      Thank you for sharing, that’s probably how I’d react aswell. But some friends I’m so close with that I’d probably forgive them even if the chances of them hurting me again are high.

      I think I know the guy you’re talking about and I agree that a rat resembles him best 😂

    • Show All
    • I think I dont know him then, I mean the guy that got demoted :D
      But that guy sounds awful aswell, definetly not the kind of guy I´d be friends with haha

      Thank you so much, I hope you get spared from being backstabbed too :)

    • Hehe. I knew you were thinking about him 😁

      LMAO! Yeah, good call! 😂

      You're most welcome and thank you. You're awesome :)

  • Yes, absolutely... Forgiveness is for my benefit, not
    there’s. To harbor disdain in one’s heart deteriorates
    you and eats you from within. I’m not giving anyone
    that much control over my mind.

    But that doesn’t mean I have to deal with or trust
    that individual again.

  • I wouldn't care about forgiving but I wouldn't forget that person (if he/she had nothing else to do other than backstabbing me lol). Even if I get to forgiving them, it would be like forgiving more than half of the people I know 😂 and yet, many I don't know in person.

  • If they cut me off and I discovered it was because they were suffering with depression at the time, or they were going through a bad time in their life, I'd overlook what they did and forgive them.

    If they betrayed my trust in someway , like talking shit behind my back... I'd cut all ties with them for good. Once my trust is broken it can never be rebuilt or regained.

  • I don’t know because I don’t think I’ve ever been or will ever be in such situation. I guess it would depend on if they even asked for forgiveness. If they do then I guess I would but the relationship would be much different to the point where there wouldn’t be a purpose for it. If they don’t then I would probably just tell them some mean things and say we’re even, then never talk to them again.

  • Yes. I think forgiveness is very important. But I’d only ever forgive someone if their apology was sincere and I knew they were being genuine about it. I’d probably not associate myself with them as often but I’d be polite if they said hello or tried to talk to me

  • Depends how bad.

    If it's just trash talk i couldn't give a shit cause i probably do that aswell. And if i think all real friends do this.

    But if they did something to try and hurt me on purpose. Well i am gonna hurt them or ingnore them forever.

  • Well personally I am the kind of person that once backstabbed I don't forget or forgive... I may act mature enough to be polite and say hello, good morning but I will not trust that person ever again...

  • If they want to get on my bad side and insult me, do it to my face. At least I will respect you as a nemesis. But do it behind my back and you worse than scum for me.

  • There is a difference between forgiving, and letting that person back in your life, where they may do the same thing, or worse, again.

  • Yes. You can forgive anybody for anything if you set your mind to it.

    Withholding forgiveness from others will cause God not to forgive you. Remember that when your life review begins.

  • No. If they are willing to abuse your trust once. There's nothing stopping them from doing again, only this time more adeptly.

  • Nope. But I do thank them.

    Because they prepared me to trust people on level in which I can very well predict them back stabbing me, so I have a counter for the possibility.
