Interesting point..You seem to think you need to "forgive" someone or else you would "be insane" right now. This isn't a mindset that I have. I don't sit around thinking about these people - but they have by no means been "forgiven" for their unacceptable actions - nor will they be
I'm wondering now if I'm actually doing the same thing, but calling it "forgiveness" because that's the 'politically correct' thing to do or what my Eastern religious beliefs teach me to do.
Reason I say that is cause when I think about it -- never forgetting and vowing to never associate with them again, IF I truly forgave them, would I be feeling that way? Probably not.
Instead, I would have truly let it go and forgotten about it, allowed them to remain in my life, isn't that what forgiveness is?
As in what @Chuck Taylor posted?
"In Colossians 3, we're taught to 'forgive as the Lord forgave you.' "
I may have to re-think this, it's possible I have not forgiven them at all.
