When I was in college I was really good at forgiving people. In fact, my good friends from college would probably tell you that I forgave certain people much too easily. Sometimes that led to unpleasant situations, but nonetheless it was a quality that I really liked about myself. I was able to love and care about people almost independently of how they treated me. That's not as true any more. I have noticed lately that I am more likely to hold on to things, and to continue to feel hurt by them over time. I haven't yet gotten bitter, but still I don't really want to evolve in that direction. Learning forgiveness is a hard thing though. And the really problem is, it has never been something that I have had to work for before. So while I know that forgiveness is something that you can work towards, I don't know how to do it if it doesn't just come naturally to me. I guess that is something to try to figure out...
