Forgive?  Always.  Forget?  Not often.  There are too many lessons to be learned from others errors or mistreatments - I remember them to avoid bad situations in the future

Forgive and forget - if something bothers me, it lasts about 5 minutes and then I am on to something else.  Its like breakfast - I cant even remember what I had.  If I let everything bother me, I would have had a stroke by now :)

I was just thinking about those ''second, third'' chances. I think, if someone betrayed or lied to you, took advantage of your trust, etc., they will do it again. People do not change. I do remember and try not to get 'deja vu'' with that person.

Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me!

Forgive and forget.  Not doing so only hurts and inhibits me.  The other person cannot feel that.

Depends on what I need to forgive.

I just had an AR agent try to cheat me out of a $19, 208 referral fee.

Forgive?  Not a chance.

Forget?   Not a chance.

Depends upon the situation.  I can totally forgive, but certain types of errors will be kept in back burner, so that future encounters with same agent I am aware of the way they handled past deals.  If someone was chronic liar, for example, I can forgive the lie, but I would question any further info from them.
