^Speaking of which... if someone hurts an ISFJ, do they remain closed up?
I shouldn't even ask this...
I can't speak for all ISFJ's but I used to struggle with forgiveness but very recently I have learned the value of it due to having been unforgiven myself by my loved ones and now I understand others need for it and am much more forgiving of others when they make mistakes. I'm still trying to learn how to balance it though because that is necessary. It's just as unattractive to be a doormat as it is to be too unyielding and unforgiving.
OK thanks. I wouldn't say I'm unforgiven... but given the most killer silent treatment, and it may as well be unforgiveness. I didn't do anything "generally" bad..she still thinks I'm a good person.. it's just one of those things.. clash of personality that came to a boiling point, and no way to fix it.
