    Apologies...

    When people wrong you, does an apology from them suffice? And when I say wrong you... I mean big time... like steal money, rape you, physically abuse you, sleep with your man/woman etc etc...
    Does an apology from them really cut it for you or does it mean nothing at all?

    I ask because I was reading on another site few days ago about this woman whose abuser (he sexually molested her when she was a child) was seriously ill/potentially dying... and her mother expected her to go see the man and forgive him... clear the air etc...
    I sorry... but I woulda just go by his bedside and wish him a speedy journey to hell after spitting in his face.

    I think that if someone apoligizes that I can forgive them but not forget. An apology just shows remorse. I cannot say that I will no longer harbor hate, but I will not act out on my feelings in anyway.

    Arrow

    Where is the Reparations option

    What is the name of the site you were reading

    I selected option 3

    I forgive easily but at times my memory is like that of an elephant

    I sometimes love NY

    If you're a Christian you're SUPPOSE to forgive.

    Vengeance is the Lord's the Bible say.

    Perhaps you should ask yourself that question.

    You clearly have a very LOOSE definition of the term "preach."

    I made a simple statement.

    I apologize if I stepped on your toes.
