How much do you forgive a person? Is there a limit or point where you stop forgiving?

I don't believe I have a line of forgiveness, that's my Lord & Savoior job. "The only people whom you should try to get even, are those who have helped you" (May Maloo) I may forgive all, but I don't always forget! ....(Great Question)

i always forgive a person. some took a long time in forgiving them. i have never passed the limit wherein i stop forgiving a person. fortunately, no one has done me a grave thing yet. and i hope it wont happen.

To me it all depends on what the person did and how it affects me! Every situation is different... I guess time heals most pains, but sometimes it takes too long to forgive and forget... if you have to live with the consequences of whatever someone else did to harm you, it's not easy to forgive, much less to forget!

Forgive all people who have done you wrong!!!Just never let them know that...that way they dont repeat their mistakes

I think it depends on the situation and the people involved. Personally, there really isn't anything that I wouldn't forgive someone for eventually. I think the saying "time heals all wounds" is true and that if you put enough distance between yourself and the person that hurt you, eventually you will be able to let go and forgive.

forgiving is the tendency to make person to commit mistakes also to make a person to recover from there problematic life and situations..it depends upon the situation and the person to whom we should think about forgiveness.
