I have problem when it comes to forgiveness, i like forgiveness and I do forgive easily especially if there is family feud. My siblings always take me for granted since they know that I can easily forgive. Though, i have received lots of gifts and blessings from friends and family members for my forgiveness, actually, it is not easy to forgive. Do you forgive easily? Has anybody offended you?

I forgive those who sinned lightly against me. But those who have hurt me too much- I can never forgive such people because they do not deserve any forgiveness. I myself have never hurt anybody so I expect others not to hurt me. And if anybody hurts me, I am not forgiven.

Forgiveness is not an easy thing to do, because most people find it so hard to forget the pain they passed through. Some forgive, but when they remember the humiliation they went through, they tend to get upset again. But I view forgiveness in divers ways. I must (permit me to use the word "must"), because God asked us not only to forgive our enemies or whoever hurts us, to pray for them as well and that made me to accept the fact that, it is a must for us to forgive and also, if I don't forgive someone, it will do me no good, rather I will be deceiving and hurting myself on the contrary. There are so many points I can give here, but time will not permit me. Thanks and have a blissful season

actually forgiveness is not easy but there is gain in it. No pain no gain! We have to pray for God's grace and enablement.

hello,Wusman! It is good for forgiving somebody who commit gross mistake or do any sort of harm to you.If you don't forgive and forget it will always hunt your mind and put you in embarrassing position.all people are not gifted with kind heart so that everybody will forgive all.It is God's gift.You are very fortunate that you possess this gift of God.However maintain this attitude in life and derive immense pleasure.I forgive everybody and forget soon the episode because I don't like to be tensed.thanx.

Forgiving is allowing another person to be human for faults, mistakes, or misdeeds. when you don't forgive someone, it can "eat you up.It's not healthy to keep resentment bottled up inside of you. at first,i never used to forgive.now my doctor has advised me not to keep any bitterness inside,for me to remain healthy.

Hello, okwusman1! I cannot say that I forgive everybody easily. In the end, I always do forgive. But the speed of the forgiveness will depend on what the person did. If the person really is regretting what he/she has done to me, then I will forgive it easily and quickly. Now, if the person is not caring too much, then it will take a while for me to accept it and then I forgive. But not too long either. And in the end, I always forgive others. No matter what they have done. Respectfully, Munhozmib.

i forgive to those who made any mistakes from me and it is easily to forgive if they are sincere. i try to be more patient to any body and i am not sure if they are not offended to the words have come out in my mouth for they never said to me the mistakes that i have done to them. most of the time my husband told me that i do more talking and i get hurts to some people and i feel so sorry to them for it is the emotion that i could not control. it happened last november at the burial of my father and i am shouting to the people who are attending the burial and they are attending to make their new record so that they will be elected on the next election because some of the guest speaker are government official and they are giving a sweet words to my late father. but for me it is not good to here because they are giving words to my father and my father can not hear any good words because he was on the coffin and not breathing. I am sick of hearing their sweet words about my father and i am very emotional about it. my husband stopped me from shouting.
