Not sure if this is a controversial topic but I feel that I would like to hear from fellow Episodians if they would ever forgive a bully?
Would I ever forgive a bully? I doubt it because I tend to remember the horrible things they have done to me in the past and they don’t deserve to come back into my life. Sometimes I believe in second chances, but that depends on the situation. Especially when my soul is so dark that it is thirsty for revenge.
P.S. Sorry if I’m exaggerating here, I have a habit of that
That’s a really good question. It’d depend on a person and their morals, but personally, I’d encourage myself to forgive that person. I’ve had my fair share of terrible people that I’ve had to deal with throughout my life. I feel like its okay to be angry at someone for a long time for putting you through pain, but at some point in your life, you need to be able to forgive that person to move on for yourself, not to make them feel better about themselves.
This paragraph sums up very well how I feel about this situation.
Psychologists generally define forgiveness as a conscious, deliberate decision to release feelings of resentment or vengeance toward a person or group who has harmed you, regardless of whether they actually deserve your forgiveness.
Just as important as defining what forgiveness is , though, is understanding what forgiveness is not . Experts who study or teach forgiveness make clear that when you forgive, you do not gloss over or deny the seriousness of an offense against you. Forgiveness does not mean forgetting, nor does it mean condoning or excusing offenses. Though forgiveness can help repair a damaged relationship, it doesn’t obligate you to reconcile with the person who harmed you, or release them from legal accountability.
Instead, forgiveness brings the forgiver peace of mind and frees him or her from corrosive anger. While there is some debate over whether true forgiveness requires positive feelings toward the offender, experts agree that it at least involves letting go of deeply held negative feelings. In that way, it empowers you to recognize the pain you suffered without letting that pain define you, enabling you to heal and move on with your life.

I’d consider myself more on the modest side because there are times that I tend to stay quiet because sometimes I say that talking can get me in trouble. Like there are times that I am very talkative and people are like “shut up, you’re so annoying” and when I’m quiet, they have the audacity to ask me, “what’s wrong?”
