some of us tend to frogive easily. especially if the mistakes done by others are just not that big. but what if a person asks for your forgiveness for having stolen your prized posession or read your diary or do something you really do not like to be treated? he might have taken the money you saved for 5months so you can buy something really important. and you wil just hear him say that he took it because he feels like eating at an expensive restaurant. and you feel like pulling his hair out... can you forgive him immediately at that very moment??

No I couldnt forgive him at that very moment but in time I would forgive him. Years ago I wouldnt forgive people that had done wrong to me. But I have learned to forgive them in time and get on with our lives because life is too sort.

that's good to hear.. it really is hard to hold grudges on somebody. it seems to stop you from moving on in life..

Sometimes people say they are sorry because they really are sorry. Other times they say it just because they are sorry they got caught. I try to keep forgiveness in my heart for people who really are sorry. it's especially good for my own peace of mind, so I don't have so many grudges to carry around.
