Forgive, but don't forget.
Posted 10/17/15
Depends what you did wrong.

If it's about a small thing, I just forgive and move on.
If it's a big thing, I hold grudges, I won't forget what you did, and eventually, I will forgive.

I forgive people after a nights rest, since all my anger just disappears when I go to bed funnily enough. I'm not the type to cease friendships with anyone. I also like others don't demand an apology, I just think of terrible things I've done in my life and how I'm no better.

I think for a long time and usually come up with "If I can't forgive then I can't move on and this will affect me for the rest of my life."

I'm not a forgiving person but I try my best not to hold grudges. Fool me once...

I think it's better to forgive, life's too short to hold a grudge. Like the Buddhist saying, holding onto hate is like holding onto a burning piece of coal, you're the one who gets burned.

For the most part, people do what they think was best in any given situation. You can't ignore the circumstances that led into whatever it is they did... They are people, too. When you hurt somebody, do you intend to hurt them and hope the wound will fester? Most likely, no.

So I accept that people make mistakes, and that I am no better than them.

Simple.

I don't forgive. Anyone. Ever.

If someone does something to hurt me, and sincerely apologizes later, I'll usually forgive them but watch my back around them. If someone does something to hurt the people I care about, I will never forgive them sincere or otherwise. Am I wrong? Maybe, but that won't change how I feel or react.

Depends on the severity of the offense.

If someone stole my last piece of cake, I'm not going to do anything. But I've met people who turns molehills into mountains, and those fussy people annoy me so much. Especially fussy men...

If someone rapes me for example, I would want to inflict the same pain on the perpetrator... I think that's the only way I can move forward with my life.

True that.
If someone's evil enough to do something unforgivable then chances are they'll shrug it off like it's nothing while you deal with their actions.

it just takes time, sometimes just few hours, sometimes few months until I forget about it and just move on lol. the person doesn't even have to ask forgiveness, I just tend to forget about it sometimes. this is actually one of my problems, I trust easily, I forgive easily, so I get hurt really easy haha o-o

Just have them put in prison, and you will have done that, many times over.

That's why you throw that burning chunk of hate at their face.
