    Well, I forgave once and got kicked hard in the butt soon after. It is sad how some can be so cruel. Anyway, gone and forgotten. I do pry for ones who have done that.

    yes that does happen, unfortunately. Stay far away. Trust has to be earned.

    I know everyone is tired of me making references to my recent debacle, but I sincerely hope I've been forgiven by those I've hurt. If not, it's understandable. I hope this is the last time I will feel compelled to bring up this sordid subject. I'd like to close the chapter and start anew ~Chan

    I've been taught that forgiveness is important, regardless of whether or not the other person asks for forgiveness. I have a very hard time with this (as I'm sure many do). It is not easy to forgive someone who doesn't even care if they hurt you. But we forgive for ourselves, not for them. It doesn't mean you'll ever trust them again, but it means letting go of the anger. I have recently had this experience. I finally forgave someone who hurt me deeply, and I guess it does truly does "warm the heart and cool the sting". To be honest, I don't think I could have done it without God's help, I prayed a lot first :)

    Bless you Rebecca. If anything it makes you feel good and frees your soul. God does help in those situations. I have forgiven also, but will stay far away from such persons.
