How easily do you forgive or ask for forgiveness?

 I was reading a newstory about a man who apologized on Facebook to another man he mugged in New York 35 years ago. Apparentely they were both on the same facebook page of a bagel shop in NYC when the mugger recoginized the name of the person he mugged in the comments section. He then went on to publicly apologize in that same comment section. The man who had been mugged accepted his forgiveness.

It had me thinking a lot about my own life and wondering about other people as well.

If someone does wrong to you or yours, are you easy to forgive? Does it matter if there is an apology or not?

If you have wronged someone, have you asked for their forgiveness?

Or do you hold a grudge?

I usually forgive easily BUT I don't forget and then I am leery of that person going forth.

I forgive pretty easy. But if I'm constantly forgiving the same thing for you. I have trouble trusting. Like if you lie.

I don't forgive or forget and I've never asked for forgiveness, never once even crossed my mind.

I forgive, but it doesn't come easy because I don't forget.  I think one could say I hold a grudge, but I call it protecting myself.  I have asked forgiveness from a few that I'm close to.  I think sometimes it is a perpetual thing, forgiving again and again until you can really move forward with that person.

And I'm not all lovey dovey with my forgiveness either, I don't just dole it out.  I need to know you are remorseful.

I'm the same way.

I'm not the forgive and forget type but it depends on the circumstances. I don't hold a grudge for little silly stuff.

If a person truly hurts me there will always be payback in the back of my mind.
