Have you forgiven your friends/family for any mistake on their part?
I always feel (and have experienced it too) that forgiving your friends/family for wrong-doing leaves them to regret their folly and prevent them from repeating it. Especially when it is your enemy that you forgive, they are put to shame and it is highly likely that the enemy turns into a friend too. What do you think?
Sorry , till date , no such occasion popped up in my life .
Yes. I have and it took a long time. The other person did not acknowledge that they had done anything 'wrong' so it made it difficult to move on. However, I found that by allowing this to go unforgiven, it was causing a stumbling block in my life.
Forgiving is not something someone else can tell you to do, either. I can go on and on telling someone how cathartic it is but unless one is ready to forgive, all of my words fall on deaf ears. It must be a personal decision of when and under what circumstances for it to be a true feeling of forgiveness.
I agree that sometimes the individuals become friends after the forgiveness occurs but that did not happen in this case. And I am fine with it as I was able to move on and so were they. That to me was the important element for both of us.
nope and i never will. i don't hold it against them in the sense that i hate them but i never forgive people who do me wrong.
Yes! I have and it brought me peace and comfort.
Forgiveness brings healing to wounds that we can't see. It is hard to forgive at times but if you ask God to help you and you have it done you will see the peace this will bring to your mind and your heart. Unforgiveness brings added stress and cause different ailment to consume your body.

what do you say to friends/family who insist on reminding you of all your past mistakes..though you have turned your life around many years ago and are not that person any longer? This also applies to an ex wife or girlfriend - or husband/boyfriend for the ladies

Do you ever choose to spend time with on-line "friends & family", while shunning your real people?It seems as if the Internet addiction fullfills the need of many lonely people. Our real friends and families know us, our imperfections and idiosyncracies. Our on-line lifestyle seems so...

Lately I've witnessed several of my friends have confrontations with their friends and family, these confrontations have resulted in the relationships either forever changed...or forever severed.

This question was pulled as a question, so I'm submitting it in the forum instead:If, with his dying breath, Hitler had asked Jesus for forgiveness, could he have been admitted to Heaven?

On arriving in heaven, which friends / family members do you think will be waiting for you?(The logical "flip" side to Peggy W's question about who YOU want to see first.)
