I Need Advice On A Question I'm Debating
January 23, 2009 3:38am CST
I'm a person who is very loving and always forgiving people who hurt me and am a sucker for anyone saying I'M SORRY. But truly am fed up of forgiving and after a period of time, I get hurt again. So am wondering if I should just drop a person the first time they hurt me because none have ever not done it again. I was so angry at a friend who I had forgiven, that I just walked out on her in a Metro Store when she insulted me. It was not the first time. What do MyLotters think? Should one forgive continously or just drop a person when they repeat the same actions

Forgive, but don't forget. Forgiveness should be unconditional because people are going to constantly fall short of your expectations buuuuttt make it very clear to her that you won't take any more crap from her. If she continues to disrespect you, drop her, but it should be because you need to get out of unhealthy relationships, not because you have a grudge against her. So you can forgive her, but not be a doormat. Sorry if I don't make any sense. D:

You make very good sense and I have taken everyone's advice and I have dropped her as she will do it again. She loses everyone and has no friends at all. I was the only one..left. But there is a limit to what one can endure..that is not friendship to always have to endure the other. Thank you very much..
