Being Forgiving Does Not Mean Be A DoormatI think Forgiving someone does not automatically exclude you from saying No, I am done. Saying no and saying you are forgiven can go hand in hand. It simply says, yes i will forgive you, but i will not allow you to hurt me again.
I think that forgiving someone, and allowing them a second chance is fine, but when it is now a second, third and more chances, then they have abused my good will. Being taken advantage of, time and again, and forgiving them again and again, does make you a pretty well used door mat. And so that cycle needs to be put to an end.
