“If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks you heart, forgive them. For they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to who you open your heart to.”

I read the above quote somewhere and I thought how lovely but can we as human beings be so forgiving?

I know that I have been hurt many times in the past and usually I can forgive and forget but surely there is a limit to what extent one can forgive? if someone hurts you beyond a limit can you really forgive them?? I know I would love to but in reality I just cut my self off from that person and walk out of their life.

When we are hurt we become vulnerable, automatically we put an imaginary barrier around us I guess that’s mother natures way of protecting us?? …..  The power of intuitive understanding that protect us from harm, hurt, damage and despair.

  1. Very well put . No matter how forgiving you try to be, there’s always That one or more persons who simply don’t deserve to be forgiven … Like u said, it’s better to cut your losses and walk out of their lives with the lesson learned.

    Besides, with hurt, the best thing is to forgive ( for yourself more than anyone else) but do not forget what’s happened.


  2. Yeah..
    you are right..about the barrier..
    the point is…i never got any points from I thought..No matter what Iam gonna put myself into it.
    i kinda grew immune..but it made me more aware, made me look into details which I would otherwise have missed, made me get the truth from the voice of people, the smile, the look, the stare.
    Its good to get hurt..we learn a lot Planning to write Hurtopedia..

  3. i think the idea of that quote is to not allow ourself to be affected in any way from the person who hurts you…

  4. while reading your post i got too involved that some incidents of mine life just flash backed.

    quite rightly said there is a limit to what extend a person can forgive, after that the right thing is to walk out of their lives.

    One good thing about this is that we Learn a lot from such incidents & it makes us more mature as a person.


  5. Forgiveness, You now why this concept Of forgiveness must be tried to follow, if we forgive a sinner, then we ineffect show that we believe in GOD & hence believe that He will make right right whatever wrong anyone did to us.
    it is hard to follow but forgiveness provides relief, happiness.
    Revenge,or payback only provide the person again an open heart to hurt us.

    take care…..

  6. hi…

    if u r interested leave me a comment..

  7. Great thought expressed in simple language…keep up the good work!

  8. arrey yaar…just today fought with our research sister…but she’s taught me so much and have learnt loads from her…some how usse monday jaake sorry bolneka hain man…i guess it depends on the degree of attachment and trust associated and the strength of the bond which is broken, number of times, which makes all the difference…

    ultmately neither we nor the one who hurt shallnt be together the whole life…so … 🙂

    and ultimately…

    The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.

    cool man…ur blogs are evoking so many responses 🙂

  9. Exactly…There does rise an imaginary barrier…The level of trust never touches the previous limits…Inspite of having forgiven or wanting to forgive, we humans cannot simply forget everything!! Has happened with me, so I can assure!
