I have this outrageous need to be "at peace" with people and will often try to forgive before I'm really ready to and then get angry again later. It's surprising and frustrating to everyone, including me.
I generally do not actively harbor resentment or anger toward anyone.<br><br>
However, if you've burned me, then that will affect how I interact with you (level of trust, interest in actually hanging out, etc.).
I try to be forgiving. But no, I don't forgive everything. And I don't forget much, either.<br><br>
I am the kind of person who is loyal to a fault, and usually will find a way to forgive you for f*cking me over once or twice. Maybe even three times. But somewhere along the line I stop being forgiving. And then you might continue to exist. And I might forgive you for what you've done so that I can let it go. But I'm not interested in having you in my life anymore, no matter what.<br><br>
There have been a few people I've tried to forgive and maintain relationships with beyond that point, and it just doesn't work. At that point, I'm just done. And I won't bother with it again. I don't really consider that a grudge though. I just consider it learning that some people aren't going to be a part of my life, no matter what.
