Depends on what the other have or have not done.... not everything is 'Forgivable'....

In life we face many challenges, some hurt you so deeply that you will be never forget. But can you forgive?

Forgiveness needs some love on the part of the forgiver. The one who accepts that he is forgiven and have the realisation that he needs to be forgiven, in turn actually receives part of this love.

To me love is defined as an intense fondness. I don't know if forgive has anything to do with it really. I mean who would want to love someone or something that one has to forgive all of the time. That implies some sort of dysfunctional thing.

Not really. You can forgive and love both only if it's equal feelings from both sides. That's what I believe.

Yes I agree. Do you continue to forgive when you are always at the receiving ends? You cannot be forever forgiving and when you are hurt.

It has to end somewhere.

If you are always at the receiving end and don't do anything about it I would suspect some sort of masochistic tendencies.
I can forgive once if I see the right attitude at the other side, but not a second time. After that it's gone case and I remove such people from my life.

I come from a 'Christian' school.

My principal used to say

'If someone slaps you on one cheek, offer the other cheek also. If someone demands your coat, offer your shirt also.'
