Have you ever had to forgive someone?


It's not always easy to get to the place where you are willing or able to forgive someone. If you have ever forgiven someone, how did you go about it? Does it still hurt to remember what the person did to you?

    It makes sense, Good Guy. Letting go, releasing or whatever we call it is important for our peace of mind. Thanks for your comment.

    Thank you, tsmog. Forgiving is not condoning, neither does it mean forgetting. You'reight, it is hard to work out the difference.

    And thank you for replying, faithreaper. There's so much truth and wisdom in what you said. I too have experienced that peace and compassion after I have forgiven someone, but trust is another thing entirely.

    Oh, it is not up to them to ask, but for us to forgive them no matter what, as it is really for our own sake. Harboring unforgiveness in our heart is harmful to our health. You do not have to trust that person or even have them in your life.

    Wow, I've never heard it expressed like that. I'm sure we can all relate to the analogy with the bank. Thanks for your excellent comment.
