30 Days of Truth: Day 4

Day 04: Something you have to forgive someone for.

I admit, I hold grudges.  I can hold them for years.  Actively? Not really.  Most of the time, I do not see the person for years.  Some of the people I need to forgive are people I may never see again.  How can I forgive a person if they are not around to hear it and acknowledge it? How can I forgive a person if they do not acknowledge how they wronged me? How can I forgive a person knowing that person may very well turn around and do the same thing again? I am sorry, but if someone has not apologized sincerely for what they did to me, it is very difficult for me to forgive them for that action.  I feel like I am setting myself up again.

Anyway, I need to forgive family members for some of the stuff they have done to hurt me, other family members, or friends over the years.  I need to forgive a couple former friends for turning their backs on me without telling me why.  I need to forgive former classmates for the years of bullying and harassment I endured at their hands.  Oh there is quite a list I could write up about all the people I need to forgive.  Question is, do they really believe they have done anything wrong?
