Do you easily forgive?

I do. And i just did!. No matter what my partner did wrong, i still manage to forgive him especially when i look into his eyes and see his smile and see beyond his eyes that he truly didn't mean any wrong doings he had made and was willing to do anything to be forgiven. So i did. I was even planning on calling it off with him, but i didn't and it didn't even cross my mind when i confronted him about it. Am i stupid to be fooled by love? Or is it just righteous and noble to forgive the one you love despite everything he has done? --Share your thoughts--(^^,)

I forgive very easily.. Even though i do remember grudges, but i dun remember them puposely.. They just etch in my mind automatically after the thing happened.. BUt still i will forgive them easily and wun let the grudge affect anything.. NO matter it's my partner, family members or frenz, i will always forgive them no matter wat wrong they have done to me..

You're a very forgiving person! Same here! Are we that easy to give in to? Or they are just so precious that any mistakes they made is much more worth than losing them and not forgiving them. LOL. Thanks for responding!(^^,)

I think that it's us, that are easy to give in to.. Because i think that, ple will always have a time and things whereby they are unhappy about and make mistakes in life too.. ANd as long as they admit or learn form the mistakes, so we ought to forgive them and give them another chance too ^_^ hehe

I guess you're right. As long as they know they are mistaken and have the decency to admit to their fault. They are worth giving a chance again. (^^,)

Are you the kind of person that never forgets any past mistakes your partner had made? It would be really hard to forgive if the pain is still there you know. How do you deal with it?(^^,)

I can say, i'm kinda one :) I have been hurt too many times in the past, but, that is still fresh from me.. I actually do not know how to deal with them. To keep our relationship, i tried so hard not to bring up the past when we are talking heart to heart.. :) but, i am just human, i get easily hurt. When i'm hurt, i get back or talk back and sometimes, i can't help but bring the past back :)

Well, we are all human and we have flaws, and we get hurt. That's a fact that we have to deal with. (^^,)

you do easily forgive to the one whom you are in love with, yet depends on the extend of wrong what we are talking about. As forgiveness is the gift of GOD, we shall tend of forgive and forget the wrong doings and appreciate and remember the right ones. Love doesn't make you fool, rather it makes you blind. Everything and anything about the loved one seems right and our judgement becomes biased. what do you say?

It can make you blind, but it can also make you see beyond his/her wrongdoings and understand why he/she did so. Kind of contraindicating but true. We have the power to forgive. But it depends on us if we are ready to be hurt again. What do ou think? Thanks for responding!(^^,)

I guess falling in love is a confirmation that you are ready to get hurt, but from the one you love. And it is sweet in a way till you can handle it right. haha ... I feel i sound funny.

The first time I do, but it gets a little tougher the second and I wouldn't hold my breath for a third time if I were you, it may take awhile.

It really depends on what they have done against me. Generally, I find it easy to forgive. It is actually the "forgetting" phase that I am having troubles with. With regards to what happened to you, if your partner did something wrong and it's the first time and he promises not to do it again, I do not find any reason why you should not forgive him. Of course, if he has done something really bad and he keeps doing it, I think you already have to think about where your relationship is headed.

You've got a point there. It's really the forgetting part that's so hard. Thanks for the response!(^^,)

Forgiveness to me comes at certain degree depending on the degree of the offense, but I really had a hard time as to make a move or reconcile with someone to whom I had offended with, most often it come with a silence in between. Often I let time pass our hurts and differences. In this area I felt Im quite not soo good and that doesnt mean I am proud of it or something. Anyway, good for you vermillion that you have a heart to forgive easily few people doesnt have that kind of heart. You did a good thing ! Way to go :)

To forgive someone is not a big deal specially when they deserve it. but always remember to limit yourself in forgiving others. if he commits mistakes and you think he wont do that again then its ok. but if the same thing happen again and he says his sorry and asking for yor forgiveness then you have to ask yourself why his being foolish to you...

Good point! He/she might not learn anything from always being forgiven, in fact he/she might take advantage of it. Thanks for responding!(^^,)

To forgive?? Hmmm they say it is good to forgive and let live. But sometime I wonder if it is really good to forgive. Well we can forgive for small mistakes such as small errors in couples but I can't forgive my ex girlfriend for what she did. There is a difference between forget and forgive for me. I have already forgotten my bloddy ex girlfriend! But whenever i see her again i do know that I have not forgive her! Well thats my personal opinion. I never forgive people who REALLY hurt me. Well but I forgive my cute little dog when she hurt my hand the other day with its chain LOL :-)

LOL. Well i guess it all depends on what mistakes were committed. Eventually wounds will heal. What matters most is NOW. Thanks for responding and good luck with your love life!(^^,)
