Saturday In House Gists -Forgiveness

Hmmmmm.... This is a touchy one!






Have you ever forgiven someone who did you something really terrible without confronting them?
Do you think it is possible to forgive and heal without confronting the other party?

Do you think finding closure is easier when there is a confrontation or is it just better to walk away and ghost the person.

Do you have a story on forgiveness?Or is it so bad you cant forget or forgive?

My friend says she cannot forgive her ex becos he caused her lots of abortions and now he is happily married with kids and she wants to confront him....I told her aborting was her choice,she could have said NO.....Forgiving is also a choice she has no choice but to choose!

Should forgiving someone be selective?One crime greater than another?

This should be interesting!

  1. It's very easy for me to forgive, but I'm not too daft to forget.
    I pray I don't meet someone that will offend me to the point I won't be able to forgive

  6. If the perpetrator is remorseful why not ? But if they're not it's very hard to forgive. Such people can go on to commit more atrocities if you give them the opportunity

      No leles.

      There are people who wrong you and rub it in your face, sometimes they make sure they sit real close to you at events so you boil more. What next?

    1. Even if you curse her it won't work. The same way you have your problem to solve,she also has her's.
      You don't expect everyone to die just so you can live. You should be asking her to forgive you not otherwise.

    2. Painful but there's no basis to curse her 3 girls o. She went too far but you also Dont know what she's going through. Pele,no vex again u hear

    3. Anon 16:02 Yur head de dere jare, do you know if this woman collected the goods on credit to pay back when she sells dem, yu sef come collect on credit, now yu wan curse her, you shouldn't v resigned when yu know yu were yet to pay off your debts.

      Delete
    4. You are a wicked somebody. How much gain is in provisions that you owed her 5k for months? #10 and #50 gains. And you wanted to curse her 3 girls she came to shout in your house? Is she the one doing you? Thank your stars you didn't, it would have gone back to you in ten folds. This is why I don't sell credit. Ungrateful lot.

    5. Your guts sha. Na wa. You wan curse person children untop her own money? Thank your starts you didn't. Your daughter would have been carrying triple curses now.

    6. She probably embarrassed you because of what debtors did to her. She is a business woman with bills to pay. You should not blame her much.

    7. You are wicked sha. Na ur type dey run down people's business and still claim victim.

      The woman struggling to make ends meet to feed her children should now be cursed cos she took extreme measures to get her money from her debtor???

    8. Your sense of entitlement irks me!
      Smh...
      You've got nothing to forgive so get over yourself. Do you know people get killed or maimed for a lesser amount? A whole 5k? They say he who comes to equity must come with clean hands, you were freaking owing her. "You wanted to curse her girls", well, you should have. Let the curse stick with you like Uhu bond or whatever it's called. Radarada!

    9. You are a foolish human being. You want to curse someone’s innocent children because you are a debtor. Do you know how much she needed that money that made her come for you like that?
      Abebe shift far, the elements won’t even honor the curses. Curse till tomorrow nothing will happen to them.

    10. Smh! The average Nigerian mentality. Curse a person's innocent children say Na them be the reason why you no get money?

  8. I've realized that forgiveness is a lesser load to carry when compare to unforgivenes which is like a fire that consumes the carrier. I made up my mind long time ago to forgive all my offenders but I will never forget those things done to me and I promised myself to pay them back with my success. Yes,success is the best revenge in life. I know I will be so successful in life that all the people that let me down in my past will still come back and beg me for forgiveness.

  9. Someone opened her legs and collected penis and babies
    Carried her legs to the doctor/quack to murder the babies
    Then she said she was "forced" to abort?

  10. Forget fire! This morning I said I was angry.
    A friend gave birth, when she was due her husband was holed up at work, she called me, I call drop which took her to d clinic, she got discharged, a week later I went to see her, her gateman said 'madam say make I no let u enter' my people, stunned was an understatement, I was shooked! I kept tearing up as I left, I sent an sms 'bitch', she didn't reply, last night he texted, she didn't know it was me, is she ok? Me no go near her house again, Laiye! I will forgive o, but not now cos I dunno if I offended her in any way.

  11. #Forgiveness ...is a willingness to get over what you think should have happened and an acceptance of the reality of what actually happened.

    And forgiveness is not a one-time-only event. It is a process*

    ReplyDelete
  12. I don't get offended easily, things don't get to me easily but when you offend me, I find it hard to forgive, I am very strong hearted, I would see you dying and ignore if you hurt me.
    I also notice that if someone offends me and I hold it in my heart, if I'm angry at the person and refuse to forgive, no good will come out of the person. Progress will be far from him/ her. Their lives will remain stagnant or become worse.
    Even my husband, when he offends me and I'm bitter at him, he doesn't progress, everything will remain standstill for him and he knows now. So he avoids offending me. They always tell him to make me happy always and see how he will progress. He also notices it.
    That is why on this blog, I don't allow mean comments get to me, I wave them off cos if I hold it against the bv, the same thing will happen to him/her. Don't tell me it is internet, this life is deep.

    1. Continuation
      One man took advantage of me back then when I was still very young, he gave me STD too. I was very bitter and sad, this man had an accident shortly after and broke his legs. He was home for over a year and was laid off at work. He became jobless and useless as his legs never healed. Another one too that took advantage of my jobless state back then and used me promising me job placement that never happened. he was also fired at work., lost his wife, his house caught fire, so many things. He called me years later to beg for forgiveness. Another lady that hurt me so bad never got married, she was broke and childless too, one man wanted to even marry her but asked that she took in first, she tried and tried all means, no belle, he dumped her. She was over 40 when I left the state. I don't hear anything about her now. Many others like that.
      So, my forgiveness is very crucial to offenders.

    6. I totally understand this. My elder sis is like that, it is not like they wished the offender evil but somehow events just turns. If my elder sis is hurt by anybody, in less than two months the person's life is turned upside down. they said it started when she was a child. And she doesn't like it either, you should see her trying to wave off hurt, she will be crying from hurt and be blessing the person same time, it is funny but I understand why she does it.
      Last week we were talking, her hubby hit her 3wks ago and has not sold a pin in his business place for the past 3wks, not one person has bought anything from him, his business is upside down and she has forgiven him but still somehowbhurt and has been battlig with herself to erase the hurt.
      So,yes it is real, some people are weird like that.
      Becareful how you hurt people.

  13. Never forgive? Umm I don’t have anyone like that. I have a habit of forgiving people,probably because I don’t want to ruin my inner peace.

    Every single person whom we meet in life has something to teach us- be it good or bad. Some may come as a blessing, motivate us, stay by our side and build us up. Some may teach us lessons in a harsh way by tearing us down. I would thank both, because I learnt a lot from them. I forgive and take that as a lesson. I won't give them the same importance I gave before. I just stay away from them. No revenge, No hatred. I gift them my silence(kindness).

  14. It is better to forgive and move on. The truth is that d more you hold on to the grudge, the more unhappy you are. Forgetting is really a big deal, it is not so easy. A very good friend offended me and my family and I was very hurt. I confronted her because she nearly messed up my wedding but she kept giving excuses. Eventually she apologized after being forced to and I forgave her. Although I forgave her, I was over with the friendship. There are sometimes you forgive and u can not just accept the person bcz you keep remembering the experience.... Just let go and everyone can move on.

    1. Why would your hubby use it against you when you took in immediately you married and gave birth to a healthy child? You are just lucky. If you had stayed up to 6 months trying to conceive or had miscarriages, you would have seen chomtin

    3. But how did you enter university and the first thing you thought about was boyfriend? I went to this same unical.... I was 16+ when I got into school. I didn't start dating till I turned 18, even if guys were doing the usual jambite rush. So you had a part to play.... think about it. Everytime someone offends you, think about the part you had to play in the ordeal and you won't feel as hurt.

      Thankfully you're in a better place now.

  18. "To err is human, forgiveness is divine" as it were. It is really a big burden to move around with hatred
    for someone, when your best bet is to forgive and make light your burden. I have wronged a lot of people and a lot of people have wronged me. I find peace in forgiving people and praying to God to forgive me too. I found out long ago that forgiveness comes to me easily and I am able to overcome.. .

  19. I forgive easily but just that we can't be close like before. I remember when I was in secondary school a friend of mine lied o stole his phone, which I did he later found out the person who stole his phone... Well I forgave him and that was the end of the friendship

  20. Some girls sha!
    This one stole someone's contact from my phone and started chatting him up on whatsapp. Foolish girl didn't know he'll tell me
    I confronted her and she lied she didn't know how the number got to her phone then I remembered seeing her fondling my phone when I got outta the shower the previous day
    I just decided to cut her off
    Not sure I'll forgive her cos betrayal is the height for me

  21. The ability to forgive is based on ones personality and maturity. Am a conservative type.
    for me its d guy who impregnated my elder sister, caused us pain as a family, denied it and accepted it wen my parents threatened to sue.
    Lied about his age and education background imagine leta it was discovered she is older than him by Far. today she's not married based on having a child before ish.
    why I can't forgive I never liked him from day one, never greeted self. and he left my sister life like this. don't say it's my sister fault it's a long explanation.
    I av forgiven but can't forget d guy who made my father cry.

  28. Well I cannot forgive my mum. Not everyone is a mother. I grew up with my granny, I was a lonely child. My mum abandoned me there. I see her like once in a term. And I usually dread her visits. She hates me and she doesn't hide it. I did not Celebrate my birthday even once till pry 5, and that was because I confided in my dad that they abandoned me while my other siblings live them.
    That birthday was my 10th birthday, my mum brought cake.she didn't bring any new cloths. I only have hand me down oversized clothing's from relatives. But she didn't care. On the morning while going to school,I wore one of those filty skirts and a shirt.
    To say I was laughed at is an understatement instead of being celebrated.
    I am the only one with tribal marks. History has it that I was an ogbanje. In other to save me, I was taken to an herbalist to resuscitate me. He gave me those deep cuts on my faces with a how.
    She will tell her friends even in my presence that I am the ugliest out of her children. She will tell them am from the village.
    I am.married now,but she has ruined me. Her lack of love for me pushed me into the arms of another manipulator. And she mocks me that I can't amount to nothing that her other children will conveniently take care of her.
    Only my granny who is 84 has been there for me and God.
    I know God will still help me financially, He has surprised me with NY daughter already. No one believes am her mum. People gawk and glorify God at her beauty. He doubled what I didn't have on her. Madam korkus , I can't type, I have written chronicles aboutbit before, I healed for a while but I know God will make he whole again. I repeat not everyone should give birth

    1. My dear you are not alone. As a child, my mum and siblings, or relatives never ever celebrated birthday for me.
      Now as an almost 50 years old and very succeful woman, although happily single and loving every minute of it, they are bombarding me on my every birthday with their "fake" greetings, from so many so called relatives that I have chosen to forget and delete from my life.

      Not every woman is a mother and not every man is a father, not every child is dependant, and not every sibling is a brother or sister, and not every blood relative is a friend to you!

  29. I don't forgive anybody!
    I just delete and forget them!
    People chose purposely to hurt someone or betray them. What they forget is that their expected intentions may not work out as planned, and the same person you hurt today or harmed can RISE ABOVE THE WRONG YOU DID THEM & MOVE ON INTO SUCCESS & BLESSINGS THAT YOU NEVER IMAGINED. So for that, I live any wrong doing by someone against me for God to judge.
    I am not in a power to forgive wrong doings.
    And BTW: does forgiveness means acting again as if nothing ever happened or that we can be cool again after those actions of wickedness and now pretend "trustworthy" to one another? Hell No!!!!!!!!!!
