    As put forward in the thread title- I just walked a long, tiring and heavy 10.4 ******* miles with a 5kg bag on my hench back.

    The reason being: a family member that I trusted gave me a faulty oyster card on purpose. Perhaps to test my patience.....

    My question- what are your limits/boundaries to forgiving someone?

    In essence, how far would you go to forgive another human being?

    Imagine how the people that walk the same distance, or even greater, to travel to school, work and so on, in third world countries feel...

    Nonetheless, sorry! Plus, forgive and forget. There is little point in carrying burdens such as resentment and anger in life.

    You think that's bad. When i was working at M&S i had to walk there at 3am (4miles walk) do a 14 hour shift and walk back (4miles). While i was there i had to unload the trolleys and make sure every little thing was working perfectly :/

    I used to walk further when I missed my school bus and my dad wouldn't pick me up. Nothing like getting home from school at 7:30-8 ¬__¬

    James has to walk 10 miles everyday because of his abusive family members. Don't sit back idly and let this happen. Donate to the JamesNeedHelp Foundation and help 1000's of abused children just like him today. We all can make change happen.

    My father told me that back when he was a kid in Africa, around 50 years ago. He used to walk around 9 miles there and back just for education and work. Walking is good. Its healthy and gives you a nice rest from sitting around. I like walking in decent distances to have fresh air when I got nothing better to do.

    It was a one off thing tbh.
    I pay for my fare everyday. Trusting this 'family member' was the mistake I made :/

    It is more about the principle of trusting another human being rather than the distance.

    My question- what are your limits/boundaries to forgiving someone?

    In essence, how far would you go to forgive another human being?
    3-4 hour walk.

    =/

    For the first 2 hours, I'd be swearing and muttering to myself about how this family member is an idiot
    For the remaining 2 hours, I'd just be annoyed as I'd have run out bad things to say
    heh

    I have no idea why you got negged :/

    I agree to a certain extent. There is little point in carrying resentment and anger- yes..but using a third world country to try and downplay/brush off/justify the situation at hand is well mind boggling.

    So what are your limits/boundaries in forgiving another human being?
