I will forgive lots of things meaning I won’t hold a grudge over it, but I would still distance myself from people or cut them off completely if the offenses reveal them to be a generally toxic people that will do the same shit over and over again.[/quote]
It’s an interesting question. I think short of murdering, maiming, or molesting one of my loved ones there are not too many things I couldn’t forgive. This isn’t to say that I’ll forgive and forget and we’ll be chums but rather forgive in the sense that it allows me to move on from the offense. In this sense I am seeing forgiveness being not for the offender but the offended.[/quote]
Okay… But is that really forgiving them?
I guess, we’d have to define what forgiveness really means before we can tackle the original question, no?
I hear what you guys are saying, and have heard it before, but it doesn’t make a ton of sense to me.
