    I can forgive to an extent,

    but I won't forget. Ever. And from that point on you will never have my respect again. If I learned one thing from my father's suicide, it's that forgiveness becomes a much easier thing to do afterwards. No one can ever hurt me as bad as my dad did. And no one can ever make me...

    I Believe In Forgiveness!!!

    I believe if you truly forgive a person and tell them in person that no matter what they did to you; that you truly forgive them. Then that gives you power over their glory of how terribly bad they hurt, abused, mistreated. Once you have done this you can watch that once gloating...

    Sometimes its best to let go of past by learning to forgive. Otherwise, you'll continue to manifest the same problem dynamics in other relationships.
