I Forgive Quickly

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 360 People

    People Make Mistakes...

    I forgive most things quickly. People screw up, are selfish or don't think about consequences. Just sincerely being sorry is all it takes to get my forgiveness. My biological father for leaving before my birth and my schoolmate for raping me at 9 are exceptions, as you can...

    I forgive easily, but I never forget.

    I can't hold grudges. I just push everything far away into the back of my mind. Some say it's unhealthy, but I'm happier that way.

    . Ive been lied to and betrayed so many times yet I forgive so easily its just in my nature. I just cant hold on a grudge on someone for too long cause its like what if (God forbid) something ever happened to that person and I didnt get a chance to tell them how I really felt...

    I've Always Been That Way...

    When I was younger I used to forgive people easily all the time. They could've done the worst thing possible to me and I would still forgive them as quick as possible. I guess it's just a part of my faith.

    Forgive and . . . Er, Forget.

    Forgiving is not a problem for me. I let things go too easily, and I know it. But even with big problems, it's easy for me to forgive - the hard part is to forget. I'm not sure whether it's better to forget or not, but sometimes I wish I would just leave it all behind. I hold...

    Over Time, I've Learned

     I used to hold grudges and hate on the world and everybody in it but now, I feel that by holding grudges, I am just wasting my time, effort,and feelings towards stupid things.   Things happen in life. Let go because we all die in the end. It is a difficult journey...

    To Err Is Human, To Forgive Divine

    I like that quote. It takes a lot to get me angry or upset, I tend to be able to put up with a lot. I tend to get over things rather quickly. People aren't perfect and they will make mistakes, I wish people were more accepting and understanding of others but we all...

    This Is a New Concept For Me ...

    I am learning, and just as anything that is new, it takes practice. I spent much of my adult life, and all of my married life, holding onto old resentments. It takes too much of my energy to do this. For me - forgiving is something that I WANT and HAVE to...

    I always forgive quickly. Some have told me too quickly. Almost as soon as the slight or argument are done ... I've forgiven. I don't hold grudges, times too short for that. I can't say this for those around me, it's definetly not their way. For what it's worth ... I already...

    With Fault

    I don't know what it is but I've never been one to hold a grudge or remain angry at anyone longer than a few minutes. It's like the moment I get angry I feel like maybe I was wrong- so I forgive. I was told as a child "Don't go to bed angry at anyone" the solid fact of the...

    I forgive easily and I forgive fast too, but the consequences affect me for a long time. I forgive, and I keep no hard feelings, but that does not mean that things go normal again as they were. It takes me long or i wonder if i can just overlook it, but then knowing me I will...

    Forgive What?

    In my entire life, there has been a small handful of people I've never forgiven.  It takes a force of nature to get me to that point.  Alas, some people have driven me that far.  I can only think of three right now, and two of them were from my secondary school...

    Any one that hurts me I forgive very quickly

    people tell me it's bad but I just can't stand the pain on heart of not forgiving someone for hurting me even if they did the worse thing possible I forgive them because everyone deserves a second chance or at lease to me they do
