Forgiveness

What does Forgiveness mean to you, and do you think that someone should always forgive?

What the hell is up with the thought provoking and srs bzn threads here lately?

Depends on the severity of what was done to me. There are people I can never forgive.

I think it's important for the wronged party to forgive, not for the sake of those who wronged them....eff them. They should forgive and let go for their own sake and sanity.

I believe forgiveness should be unconditional, but not in the sense of subverting justice (for e.g. pardoning a lawbreaker's punishment where punishment is due)

But rather, in the sense of not making an idol out of life's circumstances by believing someone has ruined your life.

Forgive nobody. Eat your transgressors.

Depends on the person and severity of what he/she has done. I’m willing to forgive most people but I never forget. One should move on anyway without telling them at least to avoid living in the past.

Depends on what I should forgive them for.

Besides, for me forgiveness equals understanding, because, if you can understand where people come from, then you can forgive them, IMO.

If I can't understand why they did what they did, then there will be no forgiveness from me.

If it's family/friend, someone I'm personally connected to, I can forgive them, sooner or later if not immediately, depends on type of offense. A stranger however, if it's verbal, I can brush it off and forget, if it's physical, unless and until they pay for it, probably not, & until they do pay, I would put it as a side issue and move on with my life, but remember it and who they are, so that I know to stay away from them or be on my guard in case they try anything else to me or anyone else.

I don't think people are obliged to forgive, what if it was something awful? that's up to them but I do agree on Plaston's point about the person who was wronged doing it for their own peace and not for the person who wronged them.

Depends who on who, what and why.

What if someone out of your family done something to you, that its very hard to forgive?
Like being responsible for death of someone who you love?
