    Thats Just How I Am

    I am a VERY forgiving person and I feel that people sometimes take my kindness for weakness. When a person hurts me or lets me down I will be upset for a while but I will forgive them in a heartbeat. Its not because I am weak that I forgive, its because I am strong enough to know...

    It's so easy to stay angry,

    but to forgive is truly divine. Always find it in your heart to forgive because just as others may have wronged you, you have also wrong them. Most of the times we are so concerned about how others have wounded us that we become so blinded of how we've wounded them along the way...

    I Guess

    It's not such a big deal for me. I've been taught to be forgiving. People who aren't forgiving tend to think that nothing bad ever happens to those who are, but that's just not true. It's quite the opposite, in fact. The bad things that happen to me just give me more practice at...

    If you ever succeed in hurting me and you do something to make up for it, you're forgiven. And it doesn't even have to be an apology. You could just simply do a really kind action for someone else and it makes me see you in a new light. Or you could just treat me differently in a...

    I hate getting annoyed with people, and fighting with them. I could have a huge argument with somebody, then forgive them when they apologize. Well, actually, I forgive them straight after the argument. I can't help it, due to my personality, I forgive and forget pretty easily.

    When I turn a blind eye upon a mistake you made

    this doesn't mean that I want you to repeat it again, it rather means that I'm giving you an opportunity to consider what you did an' make sure not to repeat it again! Self-correction is far better than that done by your betters!
