I may forgive but I don't forget! Trusting that person again would be unlikely.

There's nothing like sweet revenge.

I don't always forgive, but I do forget. I don't let others control my emotions.

Neither. I don't forgive and forget, I plot revenge but never go through with it. It really depends on what it is. With my abusive ex I would love to get revenge, but he'll just come find me and beat me more...

Forgive but don't forget. Life is too short to hold grudges or to waste time with people who hurt you.

That is what I do. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

I used to be an angry person. I was very good at revenge. forgive and forget 100%.

Depends on the offense. Usually forgive, most of the time really, but...when it's called for, and deserved, it's on..

He pulls a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue

F/F - actually neither, I stew then move on... I wish I understood the whole "forgiveness is about you and not the person you are angry at" perhaps then I could get on with it easier

I held on to my anger at my best friend for 15 years (although I didn't see him for most of that time so that isn't quite as bad as it sounds). I eventually dropped it, suddenly & totally, & realized I'd only been hurting myself by

keeping the anger simmering all that time. Fifteen YEARS.

I haven't forgotten, & what he had done was still a major piece of assholery, but I mo longer am hurting myself by not forgiving him. (The truly injured party forgave years before I did.)

Thoughts of revenge never cross my mind. I don't think that way.

I don't think I've ever done anything out of revenge.

Revenge "is" sweet

Revenge might make a person feel good for a little while, but it's not justice. Not forgiving is toxic to one's self; forgiving removes the toxin. Some things should be forgotten, maybe not others, but forgiveness heals.

Revenge is a poison you mix for someone else that ends up killing you.

I try to forgive and forget I know a lot of people who are two faced with me and I usually let it go, but I'm human so every once in a while I do get my revenge.

Depends on the situation.

Hurt my sister or anyone in my family or pretty much anyone close to me? Revenge.

Hurt me? I can forgive. I can forget.
