    For me, I find that the opposite is true.  No, I'm not going to lie and say I forgive everything that has been done to me through the mistakes of others - of course, there are some things I still hold onto and can't quite forgive.  But personally, in general it is far, far easier to forgive others than it s to forgive myself.

    I'd have to agree with Devanni...other people are relatively easy to forgive, and even the worst things they've done are forgiven much faster than I'm able to forgive myself. There are times I end up holding on to things for years and beating myself over the head with them and can't seem to let them go. I can always come up with reasons that excuse other people's behavior, but if I apply them to myself they just sound like excuses.

    I would like to add Mahatma Gandhi's quote here, "The weak can never forgive, forgiveness is the attribute of the strong."
