what does it takes to forgive someone who was made you fool and hurt you for nothing but makes your life miserable and to face a difficult life(loss Job)and your spiritual life had already gone down and lost to God because of the person had done to you?

What it takes to forgive someone is acceptance I think. I mean, if you accept the things that happened in your life which includes all the pain and hurt that you felt when someone hurts you, made your life miserable and all. Then the next thing that I think you should do is to forgive. Though not all can forget, its not necessary anyway. Forgiveness is. The negative things that happen in your life happens for a reason. Its what makes you stronger. It makes you learn things in life. It makes you a better person. So if someone did hurt you, you should just accept the fact that he/she did. You can't take it back. You can't turn back time. But in time, wounds will heal. Things will change. And you'll move on, move forward and forgive. It really is also a matter of will. If you're willing to forgive, then its easy. Just say he/she is forgiven. But learn from your mistakes so that that person won't hurt and ruin your life again.. ever. God bless. Best of luck
