How good are you at forgiving those who have wronged you? Do you feel that the ability to forgive is a valuable and necessary trait? Have you ever desired forgiveness and was denied it? If so, how did that make you feel?

I can forgive people easily if the thing they did to me can be shrugged off easily.

I've forgiven every single person who has ever wronged me. I feel this is a flaw in my character, but I do find that forgiveness is a valuable and necessary trait. A trait much more pure than resentment and grudges like other people I know hold over people. Though, when used in excess, it's something that - again, is flawed.

I'm generally unforgiving towards others, though I do have to unwillingly forgive others (only explicitly) when I have to. I always look down on people who do something wrong to me, and dislike them even more when they try to console me. It comes across me as a "pathetic excuse for being lame." IMO It's one of my glaring weaknesses as a person. Trait that I need to fix somehow. (You should've seen how mad I was when I lost PC easter egg contest by 1 EGG)

I'm very forgiving. It's probably because I've made so many mistakes myself that I'd feel like a hypocrite to hold anything against anyone else. Everyone makes mistakes and as long as someone doesn't continue to hold hatred or resentment for me I have no reason not to forgive them.

I'm forgiving, but it depends. Most of the time I am.

I can sometimes forgiving people easy and sometimes I hold grudges.

Since i'm quite hard to offend in the first place if you do something that is worth forgiving then i probably wont forgive you. But its not always 100% so if you do end up being forgiven it means you mean a lot to me :3

I'm really, really, reallyreallyreallyreallyreally bad at forgiving others. If someone has done anything wrong to me, I shun them out of my life and never speak to that person for months, or even years. Yeah, it sounds a bit harsh, but that's how I was for a long time. :/
It is rare for me to find it in my heart to forgive a person after a bad thing.

I'm incredibly forgiving. Sometimes when someone has upset me I milk it a little bit, but I always make sure it works out in the end. I just ask that as I'm so forgiving toward others, they show me the same courtesy.

Depends, if what they did was big or small and if it was on purpose or not. If it was small and not on purpose, I'll forgive them, if not I won't.

If I do not like the person, then I will never forgive them. If I am neutral with the person, it would take a long time for me to forgive them and if I like the person, it would take a while for me to forgive them

I'm way too forgiving for my own good. Most of the time, it's completely justified; those few instances where it's not have the effect of making me look ridiculously week. It's an aspect of my personality that's probably not going to change, so I might as well get used to it.

I Don't forget people unless I feel they've learned their lesson. So to answer the question I ain't every forgetting

I'm forgiving, but it depends on what they did .
August 10th, 2011, 01:16 PM
I cant help but be forgiving. I can not stay mad at people unless they have done something to me that i can not possibly forgive.

I'm not one to hold a grudge so I can forgive someone in about 10 kinutes.

If it's something minor, I can forgive easily. If it's something that involves personal attacks or theft or something major, it's much harder for me to forgive... I still hold major grudges against people fromm Sppf for insulting, negative things they said to me over three years ago.
My IRL friends I can forgive pretty easily. My parents, not so much, though...
