Thats not how forgiveness works

Its funny how people think they can fuck up and all is automatically supposed to be forgiven because THEY are over it.

My friend, thats not how it works o! If you want to be forgiven, you need to give the person(s) a reason to forgive you. And no, playing nice/acting like nothing happened is not a reason.

I thought that was pretty common sense. But then again, common sense aint that common.

  1. Thank you jare! There's also this difficult thing about forgiving - if you don't then you're hurting yourself and the person can walk with a free mind. So annoying! You don't get to offend me and get me to still feel guilty about it. :(

    1. I feel like if the person CAN walk with a free mind knowing they caused me pain/irritation/whatever, then I don't have a reason to be hurt over not forgiving them lol. They joined the "blanked from my mind" list.

  2. I had a debate on another blog post just the other day in which I argued that forgiveness doesn't equal to reinstatement. If you do wrong by me, I can forgive you but that doesn't mean we go back to what we were before. Forgiveness is necessary for my well-being (per sisi yemmie). Reinstating you is not. Some people are better off taking my forgiveness, taking road and making dust. #bye. That's all.
