  • I think it depends on the circumstance and how remorseful the person really is

  • To forgive is not to say what they did was ok, that you will just forget it ever happened, or that you can trust them next time but forgiveness is saying that you are putting the situation in the hands of the One who can handle it with perfection. Peace comes with knowing that you don't have to fight your own battles but that there is One who is looking out for you.

  • Absolutely! The only unforgivable sin is the one you don't ask Jesus forgiveness for. It's important to do as the Bible recommends. "Confess your sins to one another, and pray for each other that you may be healed" - James 5:16. "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." - 1 John 1:9. As a practical matter, there will be footwork to do, making amends and such, which God will reciprocally provide for. And the person(s) your stole from should be given the opportunity to forgive you (for their sake, clinging to unforgiveness is a terrible burden, but they might choose not to forgive). But amends are a separate matter from forgiveness which is freely offered by Jesus.
