Hi All, New to the site but have been reading for yeras

Wish this could go under Rants or another topic but I am restricted restricted. This is something I will never understand.

So why are we as people so hard to forgive others? Of course I know this is not the case with everyone including myself but so many people including those close to my heart just cant seem to truly forgive others for wrongs commited against them whether real or perceived. I relaize there are many things that are unforgiveable even for those of us who are forgiving and I am not speaking of horrible acts such as abuse but so many people can not seem to get over less signifcant slights against them. Life is too short to be bitter about things that happened to you years ago that maybe are not all that significant. I cant imagine carrying around all of that negative resintment my whole life for things that at least for me might be upsetting at first but then i relaize they are minor in the big picture. The only thing worse than someone not being able to forgive is someone who likes to continously recall those events and throw them in your face at the most opportune time.

I truly question whether these types of people will ever have peace in their life? I also feel sorry for those who cannot easily forgive.

thanks, I guess I missed the point of the intro. just had been thinking for a while about my topic and based on the large variety of people on ATS and the many different responses I have seen in the past i though it would be a good place to post the question.

Revenge is one of the fuels humans have, however bad it maybe.

Once taken revenge, the relief is not what you expected.

It's ok, we like our members to get their feet wet with posting in existing threads, before they start their own.

There are a lot of community norms here on ATS that you won't find on other forums and it can be a bit overwhelming.

Let me know if you need anything.

Many slights in life can be forgiven just not forgotten.....there is a huge difference between the two.

Just my 2 cents.
