I do not want to forgive my girlfriend, but at the same time I do not want to lose her. She has asked for forgiveness. I am now “faking it” with her. I have told her that I forgive her and that all is well, even though it is not. Do you think I truly can “fake” forgiveness?
I find it interesting that in your last sentence you use the words “truly” and “fake.” These are contradictions. I truly think that you cannot fake forgiveness. Your girlfriend will see this in your behavior, which may include some annoyance or even disrespect. You obviously have your eye on the theme of forgiving. Why not give it an actual try?
