It depends on the gravity of the crime... If it's only a misdemeanor with extenuating circumstances, what the hell! If it's serious, they'd better have a flawless pleading otherwise no possibility of appealing!
Actually, who forgives others lives more happy.
Feel free to read my hub about forgiving & forgetting.
It's not always about forgiving others or hoping for others forgiveness. Eventually, you have to learn to forgive yourself. But, on your question, yes, I do forgive others easily.
For the most part yes. And it isn't really a benevolent act - it is more about my own well-being. Staying angry and upset with someone is toxic to our well-being. So if at all possible I try to forgive - but being human, it is not always easy.
It's easy for me to forgive,everyone makes mistakes.The repercussions of their action would definitely change the tone of the relationship,if there still a relationship at all.
In most relationships there is respect and trust,once these are violated and lost,it's all impossible to regain.
No trust or respect=no relationship.
To forgive some one is not at all an easy work. But when we forgive some one we feel a great pleasure and inner satisfaction which we can not describe in words.
I used to forgive people because the pleasure and happiness I get after forgiving some one I can not describe here in words. One can only feel it.
I have learnt to forgive once I have realized that by forgiving and moving on I 'set myself free'....
A lot of my friends say I do. I believe that everybody needs a second chance. But of course, we can't avoid the people who actually take that and just play with it.
In general, yes. And I agree whole-heartedly with previous answers that point out how it is the forgiver, not the forgiven, who is the primary beneficiary of forgiveness.
However, I have to admit that there are a couple of cases in which I am still struggling to attain those benefits. . .
With great bitter resentment by the betrayal becomes an ... unmerciful enemy, destruction of cattle and crop, robbery of all possessions ... revenge.
Nope - doesn't look like I do......
it depends on what and who. If the person keeps on repeating and doesn't care, I do forgive but not forget and avoid putting myself in a position to repeat the act or word.
A mistake, misunderstanding or bad temper can be through around coffee and cigarettes maybe...
Yes. The bible says we are to forgive others so we to can be forgiven.
Overall, I think I can forgive people fairly easily unless the offense is aggregious...then it's a little more difficult for me to do so. I like to see the positive in people and give them the benefit of the doubt. We all have bad days from time to time.
If there's an apology, i forgive the first time, the second time and sometimes the third..., but the same 'mistakes' repeated are hard to repeatedly forgive. I forgive my husband for atleast one thing each day. Accidents are much easier to forgive than intentional pain caused.
No, I do not...It is one of my many shortcomings,
at least in a truly hurtful or
trepassing charge. Taking my sited parking place-----it just does not rule my day.
Betraying a confidence---a serious charge.
Publicly making fun of my shared fear........a major trespass.
Giving me the wrong gift........impossible, I accept all gifts in the spirit they were given.
It is hard to let me down, or to hurt my feelings, in fact you need to know me very well to do either..........you should know enough , not to do them!
I do not give my trust away easily, and it is not easy to rebuild a broken trust.
My life is busy and active.....I just do not have the energy to pursue those who have proven themselves to be disloyal. I just don't.
It depends on the offense.
there are some things in my life that have taken my over 20 years to forgive (I'm only 28.) But that thing I've actually forgiven for.
There are things I want to forgive, but am still having a hard time with, and then there are things I forgive easily!

Why do many Christians say that others will face their judgment day?I have been torn by the word forgiveness and judgment. If you where to stroll over to my profile you will see that I write a lot of Christian "stuff" however I cannot figure out why many hard core believers love to say...

If you were God, and had the power to forgive or condemn whomever you chose, would you let people go to Hell? Would there be a single person you would not forgive?If your answer is yes, then who would that be? and why?

How hard or ease is it for you to forgive someone who has done you wrong?I am not perfect by any sense of the word,but for me forgiving others comes ease. And I don't stay angry very long. I would hope that others would find it ease to forgive me if I had wronged them.
