How do you go about forgiving someone...whatever the offense...

That's actually good question.

I don't know if you can actually force yourself to forgive soemthing. You can only control how you act about it.

They must sacrifice 2,000 liters of goat blood to me. Only then will I think of forgiveness.

What do you do with all that blood? Go for a swim?

I remove myself from those people, most of the time. Sometimes it is a short period of time, an hour or less, and sometimes it is years.

When I can forgive them, I do.... but I do not always let them into my life again.

Sometimes you can forgive, and still protect yourself from how they will treat you.

For a guy move forward buy a drink talk about sports and women conflict forgotten
For a female flowers always a good step with a note if your still waiting to grow a pair

This. If I'm angry at someone, I avoid them until I'm not. Depending on why I'm angry, that might take a while. If they approach me to apologize, I'll probably hear them out, but I'll never demand an apology; apologies that have to be asked for aren't genuine.

Whether I still want to be around them once I've forgiven them banks on what it is they did, and whether or not I think it's likely they'll do it again. If I don't have a long-term problem with them in this way, I'll simply stop avoiding them once my spite wears off, and the incident probably won't be mentioned again unless I feel like cheekily cajoling them about it sometime.

Assuming someone is sorry for a bad thing they did to me? I don't know, really. It depends on the severity of the fault.

If it is something inconspicuous, I shrug it off and forgive the person. More dire matters would require dire measures - I'm awfully good at holding grudges.

Think about how anime characters pull off beautiful feats of forgiveness.

Sigh, this is a difficult one. It depends how big the wound is, but overall it's best to not hold grudges for too long because it will ruin the person you can be.
