Could we really bear to forgive?

Concerned about how many mistakes we have made. Some of them might had an great impact or influence in somebody's life , yet we might had been influenced by our mistakes. How the situations are after one had made a great mistake such as betrayal? Do we have the power of forgiveness? The real forgiveness , that forgiveness which you are really able to forgive and forget...to continue in that same life situation with the same feelings for that person as there were before..
On the other hand when we do make mistakes, do we really bear to look other eye by eye? ...to look him in that way that we would be able to continue our lives with him as there were before...
In both occasions..do we just pretend to?
Honestly..what forgiveness is..I
Is it a feeling that we can handle of it ? or Is it a power of an upper God?

I feel that I must put your words in a piece of paper and tack it on my wall! ( so as I can do practice every day!:) I live in Athens but in the summer i am going to Kalamata periodically( it is near to Pylos!) :)

      I do that too, when I discover something that resonates with me....tack it up all over the house as a reminder!

      I have been to Kalamata to get DELICIOUS olives! Even though my friends family have a pretty big olive grove in Pylos, we travel to Kalamate to get more olives...LOL:>)
