Everyone realizes that the people around them are not perfect and that sometimes people need to forgive and forget to move on with life. In some cases forgiving and getting are an option, but in others it may not. Depending on the circumstances what a person says now may be the last thing someone hears in their life because no one is promised tomorrow. Mistakes happen but people need to be careful with what they do. Life changes everyday and people wish they had one more chance to fix things that went wrong but sometimes you cannot go back in time. Everyone makes mistakes, it is not uncommon for people to make multiple mistakes a day. Mistakes are something that happens in the most casual way, it could just be running into someone walking. People make mistakes and people give forgiveness, but sometimes if the mistake was impactful, forgiveness may be hard to gain. Everyone wishes for a one more chance at fixing a mistake, but once the action is done or the words have been said people cannot take it back as easy as they think. …show more content…
People wish for one more chance to just see their loved one one more time. Death is a hard thing to cope with and people hope for one more chance to get to see and talk to their loved one. One more chance to seeing their glowing smile. One more chance to talk to them and tell them you love them. Just one more chance to give that person that was so dear in a life, just one more hug. People who have been through death realize that the want and need of one more chance to see them because they are gone form the word. The person they held so close to them is gone and there is no getting the loved one back. 'The end of life, as we know it, should be and is the beginning of your life without that person," she explains. "It won't be the same, but it will still be life. You must make the adjustment without the physical presence of that loved one on a regular basis." (Christian
Personally, I make mistakes every single day. For example, over this past winter break, my Mom bought our entire family tickets to the Seattle Boys Choir for the night I got home. Instead of going to the concert with my family I ditched them to go to a party at my high school friends house. My Mom was really hurt by my lack of recognition of her hard work to create a special memory for my family and I. All she wanted to do was spend time with me and I blew her off for something pointless. When I do something I regret, I hope that whoever afflicted would find it in their heart to see that I was sorry, and that they see that given the chance to re-do the situation, I would choose to change my actions. To be clear, I am not in the slightest defending or validating the actions of the Nazi regime during the time of the Holocaust. But as a person who has regretted certain actions or decisions I’ve made, I can understand the root of his need for forgiveness. The Nazi’s plea for forgiveness points toward his recognition of fault. Many Nazi’s were operating on the mindset that the atrocities they were committing were actually in the right. This Nazi, seeing the error in his actions, shows that he realizes what he did was wrong. For some people, the request for forgiveness isn’t enough to justify the act of giving it. In my opinion, if the person who is requesting the forgiveness is genuine in their motives, then they deserve
Death is sometimes considered unthinkable. People do not wish to think of loved ones dying. When someone close to us dies we are over come with sadness. We wish we had more time with them. Their death shows us the importance of that person’s role in our lives. We begin to think of how we will live our lives without them. We think of all the moments we shared with them, they live again in our memories. Perhaps death is considered unthinkable because we fe...
There are so many choice that we need to make in our lives. It is a great blessing to have agency for us to make our own choices and to be accountable of them. A lot of the choices we made today can and will influence the rest of our lives. Why not make our lives easier to forgive others and do something more meaningful? In fact, who are we to judge others when we are imperfect? Everyone make mistakes. We need to be like Jesus and forgive others no matter what they have done to you. It is hard but if you have faith in God, he will guide you and help you whenever you need
Death is a concept that people find hard to accept. You keep asking yourself “what if” as if it’s going to make your loved one come back. “What if I had been there? What if someone had talked him out of it? What if…?” You always ask yourself these questions, but never get an answer. I find myself still asking these questions even though I know they will never be answered. Death takes the ones we love the most too soon. Unfortunately, I know this feeling all too well.
Some of their actions may not have been wrong, but they weren’t right either, and a person’s guilt isn’t assuaged just because everyone else is a worse asshole than they are. Our modern society is in a spilling point, where most everyone is doing wrong, and the only barometer to measure today is not who’s truly right, but who’s less wrong. This kind of social ...
In Bill Clinton’s speech “I have sinned” showed that Clinton realized the mistakes he has done to others and ask them if he can ever be forgiven and not committing the same mistakes again. Clinton is sorry for the bad errors he had done and he has repented for what he has done and promises to make a better nation. In life, we all do bad things, but we tend to realize the mistakes we have done and we repent of what we had committed, so we could be a better person and the others around us would still have trust in us. Before we ask to forgive others we should actually forgive ourselves because what we have done not only affected the others but affected us emotionally because you feel guilty for the bad actions you caused to others. Usually it is us who
Everyone messes up, and it’s important to think of that when you are angry because someone’s mess affects you. For instance, if a husband accidentally breaks a glass while washing the dishes, then the wife should forgive him. If we do not forgive others, that means we are holding grudges. A husband not forgiving his wife could lead to them arguing, then not talking to each other, and then eventually drinking, adultery, depression, and divorce. If a wife is out driving and gets a flat tire, the husband should forgive her because it was not her fault. No matter how much someone messes up, we should forgive them because Jesus forgave all of us for all of our sins. “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you” (Matthew
However as cited by Hedtke (2002) “Death does not have to be a solitary act of futility without benefit to those around us. As they face their own deaths or their loved ones’ deaths, many people…find these ideas uplifting and encouraging” (P. 292). Grief and dying can be a growth process and complete “when the bereaved persons are able to recall the loss of the loved one without the painful agony that they may have experienced in the early stages of their grief” (Farrell, 1898, p. 40). As for the person who died, it is the knowledge “that they will not be forgotten is a source of peace for the dying as well as for the living. The significance of a person’s life continues even if the person is not around to remind people. Questioning people whenever possible about how they wish to be remember” (Hedtke, 2002, p.
Death is part of the circle of life and it's the end of your time on earth; the end of your time with your family and loved ones. Nobody wants to die, leaving their family and missing the good times your loved ones will have once you pass on. In the Mercury Reader, Elisabeth Kübler-Ross “On the Fear of Death” and Joan Didion “Afterlife” from The Year of Magical Thinking” both share common theses on death and grieving. Didion and Kübler-Ross both explain grieving and dealing with death. Steve Jobs commencement speech for Stanford’s graduation ceremony and through personal experience jumps further into death and how I feel about it. Your time is on earth is limited one day you will die and there are many ways of grieving at the death of a loved one. I believe that the fear of death and the death of a loved one will hold you back from living your own life and the fear of your own death is selfish.
After experiencing this phenomenon, the near death survivor often reports a non-fear of death. They may experience feelings that death is not the end, but a new beginning in which one lives in euphoria and reunites with loved ones for eternity. Others may also have a different outlook on the experience. Where they focus more on how precious life is and, how they will not take for granted the time they have left on this earth. For example, instead of feelings of a new beginning after life, they believe that their near death experience was an awakening for their present life.
Everyone makes mistakes, we are all human, however, through the mistakes we do a lesson usually comes out of it. This lesson educates us on life and helps us live more efficiently. In my life, I have learned several lessons, however; there is one important time that stands out to me. It is one that my mother taught me! I remember sitting on the stoop of my front porch, which was frayed from over the years. I had just came home from school and my cheeks were tear-stained with regrets of what happened earlier. My friends had ditched me because I was different. I vividly remember my mothers red van pulling up around the driveway. She came out and took my hand in hers and immediately knew what was going on. She spoke softly and said, “True friends
It is one thing to let someone know that you messed up but complete healing comes from knowing that you are forgiven. Vice versa, instead of letting bitterness and anger towards others eat away at us, the best way to move on is to forgive. In some instances, our natural reaction is to exact revenge and that might provide temporary relief but it is a fact the forgiveness provides far greater healing and relief. The Sacrament of Reconciliation allows one to experience the fullness of forgiveness. This sacrament not only calls one to forgive others but to ask Christ for forgiveness, the most powerful forgiveness we can receive. It involves not only receiving the forgiveness but accepting it in our heart and allowing ourselves to be healed by the Holy
Being forgiving of other people’s mistakes is one thing we should never forget. When online it is easy to make mistakes. There is usually so much going on around us that it can become difficult to focus solely on what we are doing online. Thus, leading to mistakes. Everybody makes mistakes sometimes, so we all need to be understanding and forgiving of this (Shea, 2011).
