I Forgive Easily

    Only When It Comes To Me.

    Generally, I can forgive people shockingly easily for things they've done to me, yet not so much for things they've done to my friends and family. I've often asked myself why that is but I still don't know. Either way, my mortal enemy when I was younger is now my long-term...

    Somedays I feel like I forgive too easily.

    If people tell me "I'm sorry" I usually forgive them right on the spot. Sometimes I hate that because people abuse my willingness to forgive.

    Yes, I Hurt, But It's Okay; Really.

    Very recently, I got a boyfriend for the first time. It seemed like heaven on earth; I didn't low how I could've been so lucky. I was happy. I was very much in love with my boyfriend and he said he was in love with me. Then several weeks ago, during a rough patch in our...

    No matter what the situation is,

    i still forgive because that's my nature. Sure they might have done something horrible but still everyone deserves to be forgiven.

    I'm human. I've made

    so many awful choices in my life I wish I could take so many of them back. I won't ever hold it against someone if they have too. If you're open to it id love to hear some of the mistakes you've made. I'll tell you some of mine. Don't be embarrassed. We all have things we...

    Wether it's physical,

    mental, or emotional....I never fail to forgive those who have wronged me. There is no point in holding grudges or wanting karma against that person. That would just make you like your perpetrator...️anyways with that mindset I believe forgiveness is a virtue and a true gift...

    Give Me A Few Days

    I think it all depends on how angry or hurt someone gets me that determines how long it takes before I can forgive them. It's never really very long though, the longest I think has been a week before I forgave someone. I just can't stay angry at someone for very long, eventually...

    I forgive people way too easily.

    I always see the good in people, which results in me getting hurt.

    Being Used

    I too forgive to easily. There are times when someone really ****** me off and I vow that I will never forgive that person, and yet I do. It might take only a hour or at the most 2 days. Sometimes I hate myself for forgiving the person because I know that they will only...

    I Try.

    Holding a grudge takes too much energy. Lack of forgiveness also gives power to the unforgiven. That person has power over me and my emotions until I forgive them and that provides incentive for me. Forgiveness doesn't let someone off the hook, so to speak. It doesn't negate the...

    I really don't get how our heart can forgive

    so easily.. Even after all the pain and anger someone can put you thru.. How is it so easy to forget and forgive?? Knowing they're going to hurt you over and over again.

    Sometimes I Think I'm Bipolar.

     It's weird, I could be screaming and cussing someone out because they pissed me off and then not talk to them but then that afternoon or the next day I act like nothing happened. I do it even faster when they say they are sorry.

    I Cant Help It... I Love Him.

    We got a room and some party favors one weekend. It was the most wonderful two days of my life. Suddenly he told me he had to go pick up his son. He said he would be right back. But he never showed. I sat alone and scared in the room all night. I texted begging him to respond. I...
