I really disagree with your last post about forgiveness. I think that if you forgive people all of the time, they take advantage of you. I’m not a very religious person anymore but I can’t imagine a God who would want his children to be weak. Plus, how does this even work?
It’s one thing to forgive someone for eating your food or for missing an important event, but what about the big stuff? What about the guy who promises he’ll love you FOREVER and so you sleep with him, you introduce him to your family, you tell him all of your secrets and then BAM you find out he’s been with some other chick for the past 6 months?
What good does it do me to forgive him? What I chose to do instead was cut him out of my life, and that brings me a lot of peace. I don’t see anything wrong with that. I’m not saying that you’re necessarily wrong, I’m just saying that I know I’m not wrong.
How can we both be right?
I “forgive” in my own way
