Default RE: What would you have done?



ORIGINAL: tmproff

Forgiveness teaches responsibility.
I could not disagree much more on this. Forgiveness CAN teach compassion, but doesnt always. Responsibilty is learned by having to accept the consequences of our actions. Let them walk all over you and forgive them, and see if they dont turn right around and do it again.

Reacting with anger will only teach them to be angry....
Im not talking about beating someone up, or putting them in jail, but there has to be a cost. The kind of person who would do something like that for fun wont stop because you explain "forgiveness" to them, they just laugh at you behind your back. If a stupid stunt is fun to them, and costs them nothing, WHY would they ever stop?
