You can forgive the person and not forgive the act. If the person hurt you it is possible to forgive but be smart enough to know that you should be afraid of allowing them to get close enough to hurt you again. Fear is probably a defense mechanism in such a case and not an indication that you were unable to forgive.
Both fear and unforgiveness come from weakness, while weakness comes from ignorance. Hence, knowledge is considered as power.
No, that is completely backwards. You can't forgive someone that you fear.
A wise man once said "we have nothing to fear but fear itself" (or something like that).
No it means your intelligent and the person you fear hasn't given you any reason to trust them again...It has nothing to do with not forgiving.....<br />
I have forgiven my childhood abusers,but I wouldn't leave my kids with them.....
Yup! Your screwed. That's why I forgive everyone in my heart to earn my inner peace and walk the **** away from them. Try it!
I woudlne say this is a question of fear but trust. Even though you have forgiven soemone it will take time for them to regain your trust
