    I just read a story about forgiveness.  It said that if a person has been rude, it is easier to forgive if you accept that this was just their nature, that it had nothing to do with you. We accept this about animals...if a dog barks or digs that is his nature.  If a...

    How to forgive the people

    who have wronged you? Good values teach us to forgive the people who hurt us. Forgive and forget. But can we really? I think that as humans, forgetting hurtful experiences are difficult and perhaps, close to impossible. In fact, the hurtful memories replay in our minds when we...

    I can hold a grudge with the best of them.

    It's not a trait of mine I particularly like, but it's often justified.

    My rule to live by has always been "no second chances". I'm trying hard to change that. I have since learned to forgive. But if I tell someone to get out of my life, that old song by Story of The Year still applies: "When I give you the finger, you're already dead to me. And to...

    I don't necessarily hold grudges.

    I just don't forget things. I can't forget them. Forgiving is only difficult if someone really let me down.

    Forgive & Forget

    If anyone causes me pain, I don't forgive and forget easily.  I need my time which I have every right being angry and feeling it.  If a person apologizes and are honests about it, then I MAY forgive.

    if I want everything to go back to normal again. Especially if the other person is putting in alot of effort. Nothing comes out of me being stubborn in this situation. If I still want the person to be in my life, then it's best for me to give them another chance.
