That depends on. If hse did a very heavy offense to me then it takes longer for me to forgive her. If ever i can give a forgiveness to her, i can;t assure that i can forget what she done to me. And my turst is not like before. Happy posting.

It is not impossible for me. Life is too short to hold grudges. I do need to talk about things in order to let them go completely. I do like closure on things. But I have learned that holding anger, a grudge, bitterness, whatever, is worse for the person holding on to it. It can even make you sick. I don't want to give another person that much power in my life.,

i can easily forgive someone but it depends upon the situation though. when i'm angry, i am really angry but once i have express my anger or once i poured it out already everything would be okay. once someone did hurt me so deep it is hard to forget though i try to forget but there is a time it would come back.

Forgiving is easy but forgetting is difficult. Well there are so many times when i have been hurt by someone and i feel at that moment that i can never forgive that person. But with time one tends to let that thread go and move on with life.I even talk to those people again.But it takes me a lot of time rather 2-3 years or more to get over it and reconect with the person.But i never forget what has been done,coz it is a learing step for me about people.

I think although sometimes hard...forgiveness is possible but forgetting is not. After all if you were able to forget a wrongdoing how would you ever learn from it. Our inability to forget is how we learn not to repeat things.
