What things could you never forgive?
Whether or not you are religious, are you the type to always forgive anything, or do you have an idea of things that you doubt that you would forgive?
Somebody intentionally doing something that would hurt my children in one way or another. It doesn't have to be a physical assault - just someone's knowing that their actions would hurt my kids and doing it anyway. OR, someone's unintentionally hurting my kids, discovering that they have, and not doing anything to make it right and/or apologize to them.
I used to think that i would be really mad when I find out someone lied to me..but now I don't anymore..so there is nothing I cannot forgive..Actually I do not blame anyone for anything anymore so there is nothing to forgive, really...
My internal coping mechanism allows me to forgive anything; it's just a matter of how long I'm going to be able to shake it off and forget about it. That might take a while, depending on what the offense is.
Our expectations lead to our disappointments hence never forgiving ourselves for giving them an opportunity to let me down.
I can't expect people to react to a situation as I would. I forgive everyone for being who they are. I expect nothing less.
My judgment is who lets me down on occasions
Cruellkindness (Subliminally Thoughtless).
May you forgive yourself, too, cruelkindness, for forgiveness is a door to transformation.
I forgive myself all the time only because i forget why i was angry. Until I do it again.
Cruelkindness (Subliminally Thoughtless)
I will never forgive murder. It is inhumane and vice, worse than the other petty crimes.
A person who disobeys his parents and make their life hell. I hate these type of people, as in Hindu Mythology it is said that on earth parents represent God, so if someone disrespect parents then they are disrespecting the God.
Deliberate child abuse of any description.
Torture and murder in cold blood because of religious or political beliefs.
Multi-national companies that worship their profit margin at the expense of life.
I uphold compassion and love as the highest psychological human achievements but I don't believe in universal, unconditional forgiveness.
I don't think that cancerous cells should be allowed as much right to grow in my body as healthy ones and I think that certain things that people knowingly do render them cancerous to society.
I know it's a strong opinion but it is how I honestly feel and it's what I honestly think.
Either anything goes or the line must be drawn. You can't have your cake and eat it. Ethics demand tough decisions to be made.
I find the idea of universal, unconditional forgiveness deeply immoral and a betrayal of the innocent and the victimized.
There is nothing I could never forgive, but reaching that place has taken forty years of intensive inner work. I grew up very angry. When I learned my anger came from love - I got angry at those who hurt the ones I loved - I saw that made no sense. So I've spent a long time learning to love those who hurt the ones I love.
There is nothing that I do not want to forgive. Sometimes I begin to get angry about negative incidents in my marriage (now ended). I pray the anger away, and replace the negative thoughts because I know that I have forgiven even the things that I won't forget.
There are so many things that I would have trouble forgiving....i.e. the kidnapping, rape and murder of children; lying and betryal from someone I love and whom I thought/think loved me; to deliberately destroy another person emotionally, etc. There are many act that I can move pass very easily because I have learn to not take anything personally. But things like I just mentioned, I believe, are deliberate act by people who need help and will not seek it.
Since forgiveness is for the person forgiving and not for the person being forgiven I would have to work to get there, but I would so that I can move forward
It is not a good idea not to forgive because it will only make you sick. Did you ever experience to quarrel with your brother or sister then later on make friends, how do you feel?
Unforgiving can drained out your energy.
Vengeance darkens the soul.
I would strive to forgive anyone and everyone. I have had some incredibly hateful and nasty people in my life. My primary feeling towards them is pity, because their hatred and animosity are making them bitter people. By choosing to hold onto their hate and refusing to forgive, they harden their hearts. It is sad to see people I care about be ruined in this way. My efforts to forgive and even to be reconciled require me to pray for my enemies. This is good for me, because it reminds me that I have faults as well, and I would certainly want to be forgiven.
If I were not a Christian, I don't know how I would be able to forgive all of these people. It is only by knowing that I have been loved and forgiven so much that I want to love and forgive others.
I could never forgive somebody for killing a loved one, aslong as it was straight up homicide. I could probably forgive somebody if it was a car accident and the person were texting or something, but it would still take a long time for me to forgive even that. I think i could forgive anybody for anything else,
so many thing i never forgive but main is my insult by anybody
Although it would be nice to say that I could forgive anything, I am wise enough to know that the realities of modern life are not all nice, nor are all people. Murder is one thing that I could not forgive, certain betrayals, and crimes against people that can't defend themselves (victims of any age or ability) are things that I could not forgive.
While it might be thought of as good to forgive and forget, I believe that you are not able to protect yourself (or loved ones) from any future problems if you completely forget the major past offenses. As for forgiveness, that is something for yourself, sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.

Should I Forgive Anyboby? This is an interesting and common question in our daily life. You might been hurted so bad that you did swear never to forgive as long as you're alive seeing that person. When people hurt us, we have a tendency to become bitter but I've strongly observed the negative...
