    Yes Absolutely !

    I can forgive you yes indeed! But I will never forget, and I doubt you will ever again in your or my life time ever get the chance to hurt me again and definitely not my trust!

    I could probably win medals for holding a grudge; my family laughs at me about it, but I really should learn to let go. It doesn't hurt anyone except me in the long run.
