I'm Not Always Willing to Forgive

I'm actually a super forgiving person IF I get an apology. I've forgiven things most people would never because of heartfelt apologies. It's because I understand to be human is to be flawed and make mistakes. We learn from our experiences and sometimes we need to do some shitty things to realize that is not the kind of person we want to be. I have done terrible things and have needed forgiveness. How can I accept that but not accept that others can be good people who have done bad things, too?


However.


If you aren't going to apologize to me then you might as well leave me tf alone forever because I will hold a grudge to the grave and beyond. Don't dare talk to me all friendly when you did me dirty. I might even smile at you, but I swear I will deck you first chance I get and you will realize that smile is just me holding back my snarls. 😂😂😂


I have tried so many times to have grace and forgive without proper apologies, but in my experience the kinds of people who wrong others and don't make amends are not the kind of people I want around me anyway. 🤷‍♀️ If someone hurts me once and gets away with it, what's to stop them from doing it again if they have no remorse? 🤔
