Is it easy for you to accept others' apology?

Some people may do a wrong thing that will hurt you to a certain extent emotionally or physically. You are supposed to punish him or her! But if they apologize, will you forgive them so easily? It is time to say it's not okay or it is not Ok!

I suppose it depends.I will accept the apology easily if the hurt is insignificant,but maybe it will take me a long time to recover if the hurt is too deeply, so I will accept it. I will consider the matter and communicate with him or her friendly.

Sure, my head pains since some nerdy classmate just kept me talking on the phone for hours! So, my response is not making sense now!

It depends on what they have done to me if it still on normal limit, yeah i will forget all their fault and forgive when they trully apologize. Or when they hurt me accidently, i will forgive easily. But if they hurted me a lot and so deep, of course i will forgive them also, but i need a little bit time and ask them not to do it again.

Hey hiddenwing! I think that it would depend on what the person did. Sometimes an apology just isn't enough! Some things just can't be forgiven. I think that as they say "let the punishment fit the crime"! There are just times when someone hurts you or has taken something to far and there just is no going back and therefore an apology is just not going to be acceptable no matter what.

Well, I am so softhearted I even forgive someone's unreasonable behavior once they appologize! This is the reason that I try to learn to be sort of hardhearted! Have a great day, Ms Opal26!

Hi there , It's best always to be apolegitic from our side and we should forgive the fault that they had done , than be in revenge for the entire life against that person .But we should make sure that we are not pardoning that person blindly,because there are many who later take the advantage of it and start making bigger faults and later casually will ask an apology for it , which just makes apology ,a mere excuse . SO the next time we forgive sommeone(which we should do more oftenly) we should make sure that we make that person understand that its not a mere getaway from punishment, but a safe warning from a bigger punishment in the future . Cheers!!!

Always easy. I am a soft-heart guy, sometimes other people hurt me very much but I can't help forgiving it if they give me apology. Maybe this is my foible.

I guess so! Let's learn to deal with it! We can't be always like that! Someone may take advantage of it!

It really depends on the crime. But generally yes.

Crime? Oh, is it a metaphor? Ok, I think there are so many things that I am ignorant of!

Well I am a very soft person at heart and believe me the moment one apolizes then I do forgive and start afresh. But the persons should not repeat the same behaviour again and again, then I forgive but forget the person as well.

There is a saying! Even the world will change, the person won't change! The fox may grow grey, but never good. But sometimes there may be a miracle!

It is easy for me to accept others' apology when they are sincere and it also depends on the gravity of the offense.

Hi there hiddenwing If someone has upset me then I become a bit withdrawn from them and don't converse with them much. Once they have asked me what's the matter and have appologised to me then all is good and forgotten but I might bare a grudge for a while if they don't.

I would have to know that the apology was sincere. Some people think they can get away with anything as long as they say sorry, even if they don't mean it. I don't forgive esily, I know I should, and even if I accept an apology the relationship would not be the same for a long time.

When we say, "that's OK", we usually mean that they are forgiven, not that we were not hurt. It isn't hard to forgive, if I'm sure the person is truly repentant. However, I have a hard time with those who deliberately do something to hurt, give a casual "sorry", and expect that to make it right.
