    I try to forgive people, but only once.  I usually end up regretting it and wishing I would have walked away.

    Unfortunately my nice nature prevents me from learning my lesson!

    I've always been a very forgiving person and I have been walked all over. Recently I walked away and have decided that it was the right thing to do. It depends on the situation really and how people have treated you.

    thats an interesting question, forgiveness is something that doesn't come easy to many people, its not always easy, but no matter how tough it is you have to let go and walk away. I had trouble with this, for many years i was angry with a person that was so close to my heart, and swore that i will hurt that person. then one day i felt that this had a hold on me, and was affecting me, so i said a prayer and forgave, it was such a relief, In two day after that strange event i met that person, and he made the first move for reconcilation and ask me to forgive him, from then on we have had a good relationship.

    I'd walk away if at the moment I'm not really ready to forgive smile
    to forgive is not like giving away something, it takes time for the process to be completed

    Depends on the circumstance. If I recognize that someone is malicious in their intentions then I would walk away. No need to have their bad karma follow me through any other life.

    Some great comments here.

    Personally, I believe to walk away is the easy way. It is much harder to forgive someone, but I do think every situation is different, and sometimes walking away is the only way.

    We are not meant to be doormats or to be taken advantage of, however I believe you can forgive someone, while you walk away.

    This is an interesting question because so much depends on the situation.  Was it infidelity, was it a loan not repaid--each situation is different and holds different weight.  But, having said that, generally speaking, I think it is better for our hearts to forgive but not forget--because if we forget, it could happen again.

    Say, in a situation of infidelity, eventually you can forgive, but it can be done while walking away--one does not have to stay and act as if it never happened.  Forgive for your own heart, but walk away for your own sanity and well-being.  One is not mutually exclusive of the other.

    In most circumstances, I feel that everyone deserves the opportunity to make things right.  At the same time, I feel that it is possible to forgive AND walk away.  In a past relationship, my significant other cheated on me a couple times, and while I can honestly say I have forgiven him and we have remained cordial and stayed in touch, I have moved on to bigger and better things in terms of romantic relationships.
