How many times are we to forgive? I get hurt emotionally by a family member often. They never think they did anything wrong and never apologize. I'm not talking to them now but feel guilty because if something should happen to them I would really feel bad. How many times can someone forgive just to be hurt again and again?

It's a pretty difficult situation, usually you could forgive them for not knowing better or not being able to controle themself, but if you can't get away from them the only solution is dealing with it different, if talking doesn't help.

Forgiveness doesn't help them. It helps you, by freeing you from anger. You can forgive them without telling them so or inviting them back into the picture. So never stop forgiving.
