Sometimes people who wrong us are in positions of power and we have no recourse. Other times the person who wrongs us doesn't know or care. There is no way to get through to them. I don't have answers for those situations.

Yes, that's why it's a case-by-case thing.

I cleanse my heart (and the other energy centres) with the Middle Pillar Exercise. Not always easy and takes time but it's an experience of inner cleanliness that defies description.

Perhaps luckily but I don't often get into a situation where forgiveness is necessary nowadays.

It's easier to stay out than get out.

everyone likes it clean, but sometimes living with the fact you've got a mess is best.

As far as the idea that one should 'withhold' forgiveness either for retribution or for the idea that the other person should somehow learn something from not being forgiven, I'm not sure I would agree. Who made ME the sole arbiter of what other's lives should be like? So there has got to be more to any decision to forgive or not to forgive than that.

Unfortunately I don't think there is a formula for this... our idea that there is is just to make our own lives easier, or sometimes to keep us from having to face the consequences of our choices.

I think too good. There's a difference between forgiving someone that legitimately changes vs. continually letting people walk over you constantly brushing it off. At least that's my experience.

I cannot say that I have Christian patience and the ability to forgive (in the canonical version). I try to hold back my initial reactions but ... I believe in the principle of boomerang and karma. You get what you give sooner or later.
