Radio question of the day: 10/30/06

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Are you a harborer of resentment or do you forgive easily?
post #2 of 25
It really dpends on the situation. I still hate my ex with a passion and I feel the anger inside myself when I see him. But he hurt me deeply and I guess those wounds havent heeled yet. For the most part I will forgive but Idon't forget easily.

I may forgive, but I never forget.

I know it's a bad thing, but I don't forgive easily

I've learned to forgive rather than harbor. It makes my life easier not stressing about other people's issues.

I have a hard time forgiving too.........and I hate that about myself.

I forgive easily, it just depends on the situation for me. like if someone hurt an animal, they are not getting any forgiveness from me, whatsoever. I do believe in second chances, but hurting an animal is a little too far for them to get any forgiveness or respect out of me. the same thing goes for if someone hurts a child or a person. I know life is way too short to hold grudges, but there are some things I hold grudges as for what I listed above. I hope I am not coming across as too harsh to anyone.

It depends on the situation- I am usually very nice and I usually forgive very easily....but there are some things (and it takes a lot to really upset me ) that take me a while to forgive and that I stay upset over for a while. That rarely happens with me though. It just depends on the situation I suppose. I always try to be fair and forgive though- after all, I would want others to extend an offer of forgiveness to me should I need it you know.

I can forgive but I really don't forget. So does that mean I really don't forgive? hhhhmmmm

I really don't think it is in our human ability to forgive. I think we can forget, but I think forgiveness is divine.

I do try not to stew over things, I try and deal with them as they happen and move on.

I can easily hold one; unless I tell myself to "forget it." It is over and done and holding a grudge will not change things.

It does depend on the situation for me. Mostly I do forgive, maybe not easily, and sometimes it takes a while for me to work through the issue to the point where I can forgive, but in most cases, I do get there.

That's me 100%. Even though I've "forgiven" someone, its always in the back of my mind. Not one of my best qualities.

I forgive everybody else pretty easily. I can hold a grudge against myself indefinitely, though.

Same here.
post #20 of 25
I harbor...Unfortunately I tend to resent a little.
post #21 of 25
I am not a big grudge holder, But I can hold a big grudge need it be, I am the kind of person that alway's tries to understand things. I don't speak before thinking, and I say what I mean and I mean what I say

I can't forget but I can forgive - forgiveness is good for the soul and makes you a better person!
post #23 of 25
I never forget and I can harbor a grudge for a LONG time.
Especially if it involves an animal. Then you better never bother trying to get on my good side, because if you hurt an animal in any way, there is no forgiving or forgetting. And you'll never be welcome in my home.

it does depend on the situation...believe me I can hold a grudge forever...
post #25 of 25
I bear grudges terrible, and it could take me years to forgive, if that persons lucky enough.

As my late husband used to say " Susan can be the best friend you can have, but get on the wrong side of her and she can be your worst enemy ".
