When you say the right thing...it is overwhelming.
Well after figuratively strangling them with my mind, I move to the next step which is pretending they never existed & so far it is working rather well. I am happy as can be.
I have always been known for being the one to forgive over & over but sometimes I finally run out of forgiveness because people come to a point where they realize they can keep screwing up & it is okay. Well the forgiveness train has finally derailed & ain't gonna be repaired anytime soon.
Forgiveness isn't always a two way street. If they want to hang on to whatever, then that is their choice. As for me, I choose to forgive and move on with my life.
You are forgetting the second part of "Forgive and Forget".

Ha! I thought I was going to get something like Matthews 1:1.3
Should know me better. :)
I so want one of those
It would be a handy thing to have...
If I have been hurt, I need to heal sufficiently from the harm inflicted on me before I can meaningfully forgive. If you have been harmed, you have lost something. If you have lost something, recovery requires time to grieve. Don't forgive too quickly.
Good advice tomjackson.
