Real World Scenarios
Repairing our relationships is important and rewarding. It's getting to that point that can be challenging. At our most recent Lunch & Learn at LeoDaniels, we explored the practical halachic details of trying to make amends.
Questions discussed include:
If you know the person forgave you in their heart, do you still need to ask?
If you said something negative about someone but they are unaware, do you have to tell them about it to ask forgiveness?
If you feel someone is upset at you for no reason, do you have to appease them?
If someone says they forgive you but you know they don’t mean it, does that count?
If someone rejects your appeasement, what should you do?
How should you respond when someone asks you for forgiveness?
Are there times where you are not required to forgive someone?
