Forgive and Forget

Written in response to

  1. Have you made mistakes in life, things that you regret? Yes, I have made mistakes, mostly when I have said what is in my head, and saying things I shouldn’t have said. I didn’t mean to hurt that person, and it is partly to do with me not having confidence in myself.
  2. Have these mistakes hurt others? If so, did they forgive you? Have you forgiven yourself? I would hope I have been forgiven, but I do tend to not forgive myself as easily.
  3. Are mistakes simply a learning experience, or are they a result of poor judgement? They happen, we are not perfect, no human is. We just learn from our mistakes, and don’t do that thing again.
  4. Does it bother you knowing someone cannot or will not forgive you for something? It doesn’t bother me, I cannot change their point of view.
  5. Is it easier to forgive others than it is to forgive yourself?? Yes, I think the only thing I haven’t been able to forgive are the boys, who bullied me what I was a child. They had a choice, could see how upset I was, yet still carried on. Perhaps there was a reason at home for the way they acted, but two years of my life was affected by them. I find forgiving myself more difficult, I think I hold myself to a higher standard than those around me.
