Is it easy for you to forgive people or is it hard for you to forgive and forget? For me it all depends on what that person has done. If it was something really mean and hurtful in such away where others might not forgive that person. It might take me a while to get there to forgive and forget. Other things like little things like accidentally doing something that they didn't mean to do. I can forgive really easily and move on from it like it never happened.

Oh no I think it's not easy on anyone, we can't forgive because it was something really ugly and serious, but it's the right thing to do and we must, not for them by forgiving we are not letting the enemy go without judgment, but we are freeing ourselves, we suffer when we don't forgive a brother. jesus Christ already said we must forgive 77 times 7

I don't care what Jesus says really ever. I think it can be easy for someone to forgive any one for something. It really just depends on what and something are not forgivable at all. Someone rapping you, you won't ever forgive that or its done to someone that you love so dear your not going to forgive that isn't something that can be forgiven. Not forgiving someone isn't going to do anything to do your them. They hurt you and weather they no it or not Karma will take care of it.

I find it easy to forgive someone if they apologize. If they don't think they have done anything wrong then I can feel I am giving them approval for more of the same if I don't react. Forgiveness can be for ourselves though and so it is a good thing to do.

Well some times when someone apologizes they do not mean it. So if I feel they don't mean it then I will never forgive them. Some things in life is so every un forgivable.

It is never easy easy for me to forgive and forget. Like it does not even depend on the situation because I hold grudges no matter what. I will probably give a lip service and say "OH it's OK" but it's not. I think that is one characteristic of mine that I want to change.

Oh that isn't good. Yeah that kind of part of someone personality isn't always a good one holding grudges. I use to be that way as a child but I grew out of it because I can't stay mad forever at someone because I know its not fair to them if they truly didn't mean to hurt me or offend me. Yes there are certain things I think that are just unforgivable.

For me it just really depends on what they have done and if they are really truly sorry about what they did. I know some people can say they sorry and not mean it at all.

It depends on what they done to me. If it's nothing big then I can just overlook it and forgive & forget. If it's something that is going to break my trust, or anything that's a big deal then it would be hard to forgive & forget.

Yeah I'm with you on that one. Some things are just easy to forgive and other things are just so hard to forgive because of what ever they did or done. I know there are some things my husband little sister has done that I just can't forgive at all. I just don't bring it up around anyone because it'll start a fight.

I used to not easy in forgiving. Not anymore now. We all commit mistakes anyway and we are not perfect. We have to forgive and forget.
