    I have always agreed that each of us can choose how we react to negative events in our lives, but I have never thought that even the “bad” things that happen to us could be a reflection of ourselves. The next time I feel that I am wronged in some way I will think about how forgiving myself will get rid of the need for any other forgiveness to take place.

    I think forgiveness is letting go of the need for revenge and releasing negative thoughts of bitterness and resentment. It is a conscious, deliberate inner response to release feelings of resentment or vengeance toward a person. The hard part is learning to control this feeling. You can forgive them, but you will never forget what they did to you. How is it that we can forgive everyone that does something to us? Why would I want to forgive somebody who crashed into me while driving creating an accident? This incident creates more stress in my life and I would have been better off not having to deal with this extra incident. Yes, I will need to accept that it happened and continue on with the correct actions to get it all fixed, but I do not understand how or why I should forgive the person who caused the accident. I would treat somebody the way I would want to be treated. With that being said, if I had caused the accident, I would apologize and hope all persons involved would be polite, but I would not expect them to forgive me. A car accident is not a positive thing so how can you justify everything happens for a reason? It would be tragic to say oh my family died in a car accident, but it is okay because everything happens for a reason.

    This is very interesting idea that the environment is made by us rather than people are shaped by the environment. However, for some times, people barely had choice to choose their environment but to accept it. Also, it depends how to define the scope of the environment. I would like to say the environment and ourselves are mutual interactive all the time rather one affect the other in one direction. This idea is mankind-oriendted, which mean we consider ourselves as the center of everything that we think. This may strict our mind to explore the real issues in our lives. So we may automatically choose the environment around us, but we also are affected but he environment that we are in and we can be changed by that.
