Forgive Now!

I Choose To Forgive!

Many a time, almost each of us encounter a scenario amidst our daily acts and deeds, wherein we fall into the trap of anger, hatred and grudge for someone close or distant, and for reasons, rational or irrational.

My husband has a hard time telling the truth, but he makes it look like I’m the one who is messed up. He likes to be the nice guy and funny guy at all times. He tends to make me look ridiculous and sometimes even talks about me to people. He told me he’s going to quit smoking but he doesn’t, and when I told somebody that he acted like I was completely nuts, he did not agree to that. How can I deal with something like that?

Many times, it is people’s lack of confidence in their own self that makes them behave like this. As you said, he likes to be the nice and funny guy and pretends to be something else in front of people when he’s actually not that. He should be doing so out of his insecurities and […]

Hi, further to your article on building trust, I wanted to know if it is really practical that somebody who has broken someone’s trust will admit it and are the relations strong now-a-days that somebody actually does it. I don’t want the one who has broken my trust to say sorry or admit his/her mistake. I want my relations with him/her to be so trustworthy that the person can freely tell me about the fact and make me understand the situation.

Coming upon the first point; of admitting after breaking someone’s trust; here all I can say is, that it solely depends on that person whether he/she wants to come ahead and confess it or not. That again depends on the ideology and the viewpoint of that person. Someone who is really truthful with his conscience […]
