    Granting Forgiveness
    I think its harder to forgive someone who has lied to or hurt you than it is to simply ask someone to forgive since if you're truly regretful you'll really yearn for forgiveness and asking won't be as hard.

    For this requires a person to humble themselves. Yet also granting forgiveness can also be a humbling experience. Both require a person to also look at themselves and realize they too are only human....

    Actually neither is. Not putting yourself in either position is...

    They are both equally hard. The thing most people don't understand, if you don't do something that need to be forgiven, then you won't need to do either.

    I have no problem with either. If I've hurt someone or offended them then I will ask for forgiveness! If someone has hurt me, then it depends on what has happened. But I'm a very forgiving person and I will forgive them. But if they hurt me again, then that's it.

    Fortunately, I've never been badly hurt by anyone that I couldn't forgive....sometimes it's hard to forget though.

    Granting it with me is particularly hard, If I'm wrong i have no problem with admitting it.

    I'm not very good at letting things go.

    Asking is like begging, granting is pious, in my opinion.

    Asking for Forgiveness

    I can admit when I am wrong and I also forgive what others do to me. Jesus said if you don't forgive others, I won't forgive you of your sins

    Forgiving others is far easier and more rewarding

    Asking for forgiveness even through I can admit when I am wrong, we all have some level of pride but we just have to suck it up and admit we were wrong

    Hey, cool. I'm the tie breaker. It's easy to apoligize but to ask for forgiveness is much harder than it should be.

    SO far nobody has asked me to grant forgiveness, so I'd say it's harder...

    For me it's asking. why you ask, well because like most humans i'm inherently selfish. Although most won't admit it. Asking for forgiveness puts us in a passive vulnerable position already, then you must ask someone to say they forgive what you/I did, they might say go screw yourself.Rejection on top of guilt is not good for the human psyche. Better yet let's try not to f-up in the first place

    Granting forgiveness, in some cases,can be almost impossible! Sometimes we have to ask God to do it.

    I'm pretty level-headed so i can easily forgive so asking is harder
  • Granting Forgiveness
    I find there are some I just can't forgive. For what was done was too damnable to forgive! If they had asked for forgiveness, and admitted to the wrongs they committed, I could forgive. But to never have asked for forgiveness, nor to even at least admit those wrongs, (they know who they are, and they know what they did) is in, and of itself, unforgivable. They are no longer worth wasting another moments worth of my time on. In the scheme of things in life, they mean nothing to me.

    Granting it, its easy to say I forgive but not so easy to really forgive.

    I hate questions with only two choices. I have no trouble with either, other than feeling bad that I have to ask.

    Never really upset anyone, but if I did I would ask for forgiveness.

    Both are hard but asking for forgiveness means you are in the subservient position. With granting forgiveness, you are in the position of power.

    It's easy for me to forgive just about anything if I believe the person is sincere.
  • Rohit 2013/02/06 11:30:37

    Because the one who needs to forgive is the one who goes through more trouble.

    Sometimes it feels like kissing up.
