Men vs Women and Forgiveness
We all know that men and women are both emotional beings that happens to express their emotions quite different from one another. One of the major problems is that it's often stated that men are more logical while women are more emotional which then says the correspondent lacks logic or lacks emotions. This causes men to prove this lack of emotional part but also causes them to conceal what they really feel. Yea they can brush off things to an audience but deep down they are hurting. This hurt lasts longer then normal because they do not get the proper release.
Men do not forgive. They do not forgive because they try to hide that they were ever hurt in the first place. Even though they brush it off, they are angry and will have unpredictable outbursts. Sometimes they can hold a grudge so tough that it will prevent them from having a healthy relationship.
For men, you have to let them sort this out on their own. Begging them, trying to make them forgive you will only fuel the pain. You have to step away for awhile and let him deal with the issues he has with you.
Women are more compassionate. They care about how you feel. If they see that you're are also hurt from whatever mistake you made, she will work toward forgiving you if she doesn't forgive you at that moment. Women are expressive. They vent often so there's not alot of emotional build up to allow them to hold a grudge. The only thing is, women typically wants you to be there emotionally for them. If she has a sudden outburst of tears, she wants you to comfort her not tell her it's not that serious or walk out the room. If you do not be there emotionally for her, she may think you don't care or you are not as sorry as you said which will question her forgiveness.
This is not to say all men are unforgiving or all women forgive because that isn't always the case. This is a general observation.
