Well, yes! One of the most thorniest and greatest thing you can ever do in your life is forgiving the Unforgivable and to do this one needs a noble heart and that is not enough - only a real valiant human can do this! We might have read a number of stories where people [legends] responded to evil with mere kindness! Is this possible in the current state of humans? According to me, no . Actually, if you forgive your worst enemy , it is the greatest deed you can do !

Ya , I agree what you say.One should be great to forgive their enemies. But I don't want to be great.I won't forgive my enemies.I will punish them or I will forget them.But I won't forgive and say come lets have dinner together..This is my opinion..

Yes I agree with this one that the best deed you can do is to forgive his worst enemy. It will be easier to forgive if the sins is not that big or severe. And if the person is not part of your family. To forgive the one who hurt you in the past is enough to make your life a peaceful one. It's like letting go of of and excess baggage. But what if somebody killed one of your family love ones, what it somebody raped your sister or your girlfriend and kill them afterward. Can you still forgive that person who did this heinous crime. If it happen to me I might not be able to forgive.

Dear kar, what you say is true, but it is such a difficult thing to do it,, i don't have many enemies, may be not enemy at all in the true sense of the word, but it was due to difference of opinion only.. Sorry for late response.. Thanks for sharing. Welcome always. Cheers. Prof

You are very right in this statement. I am the kind of person that tries not to hold grudges in my life. Yes, there are some people that I dislike for whatever reason, but there is no one that I would say that I hate. There was a time that I had a worst enemy, but I found it was too hard to maintain the anger that I had for that person. Now, I don't think about them very often and when I do think about them it is with distaste, but it definitely isn't with hate toward that person.

I am not that kind and do not tend to forgive peoples damaging our society. For me terrorists are modern devil and I can not forgive a single terrorist. I understand kindness is possible but for the people who deserve that, these are peoples who have done mistakes and nothing intentional, can be forgiven. I will forgive everyone but not terrorists.

That is one of the hardest things for us to do. In our religion, we believe that we cannot forgive our enemies through our own efforts alone. We need the grace of God to do so. So is the saying" To err is human. To forgive is divine". I've learned through a recent healing session these prayer, "In the name of God, For the love of God, I forgive you". Forgiving is a decision and is not just a feeling. In the same way that Love is also a decision and not a mere feeling.

What is the exact definition of enemy?If someone has done bad things,he must have a reason,then try to understand him.If we can't understand,just ignore it.It isn't worth hurting ourselves by other's bad behaviors.

its quite difficult to forgive someone who has done very wrong things to you. but if you forgive that guy knowing that its this chance to all you revenge and not taking advantage of that chance makes you superior to him in front of God. He loves the one who forgive his enemies. though its difficult, just like taking first step is difficult but when its taken rest goes quite smoothly.

You are right, kar. It´s difficult to forgive. But you can learn not to have worst enemies.. There are lots of nice people in the world. Why get near the worst? I have lots of friends and some of them are as they were part of my family. When I meet someone with which I have no chemistry at all, I listen to my body and run if I can. Take care!

If someone would murder my family, then I would probably take revenge by making his life as hard as hell. I could NEVER forgive him... If someone would get my family killed by accidentally driving into their car, then I could maybe forgive him... Depends on the person's personage.

we can forgive our biggest enemy by thinking that us can conduct the same mistakes as our enemy do to us. that sometimes we conduct mistakes without us realize, so also our enemy. this is hard to do but it is worth.

I don't have any worst enemies, so it's hard to forgive what hasn't been done. But when someone does something that offends and says I'm sorry, I'm pretty fast at forgiving. Now, forgetting? It takes me longer to forget.

It's just like in the movie, your greatest enemy is yourself or like what Shakespere said you are the only enemy you have.

Ok what is the proof that I have forgiven somebody? :) Now - as a mark of forgivenss would you expect Jews to invite some Nazis to their place for dinner? Or would you expect the forgiveness means ignore the person. Exactly what do you mean by forgiving.
