    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 believe it's important to forgive, even if they don't deserve it. Holding on to anger takes so much effort and it's not worth it. Save the energy for something worth doing. :3
