Does forgiveness come easy for you...

these days? Honestly, I use to be kinder, thoughtful, and more giving and forgiving others for wronging me...just didn't seem so hard. I was very open to forgiveness. These days I find it harder and harder, I think that I'm a little cold from all the hurt that I have been through in my life and I notice it changed me...still sweet, but not so quick to forgive others.This isn't a post about catholic or Christians etc.....just about you and your heart. What about you?

  • I forgive easily. The only difference now is that I am not dumb enough to stay in relationships with toxic or abusive people. I used to try to reconcile and it took alot of burns to realize that I was just setting myself up for another go around.

  • When it comes to people doing things that hurt me, I am very forgiving, and open to second (sometimes 3rd, 4th, 5th, etc) chances. However if anyone ever hurts my daughter, that's it. It takes a long time for me to get over that.

  • It does come easy for me, there is only one thing I refuse to forgive and that would be my husbands infidelity, that one is a deal breaker!

  • No, I got tired of being back stabbed and screwed over again and again.

  • Yeah, I forgive and forgive and forgive. I can't think of anyone I haven't forgiven and that includes my abusive ex.

  • It depends on the wrong that was done to me. I can usually forgive, but sometimes not so easily. But I never forget so I don't get burned more than once!

  • I can forgive but not forget

  • I can't forgive or forget. That is probably why I don't have friends. I just seem to pick the wrong ones.

  • I forgive very easily...but I don't forget a thing.
