Nigerian musician Joeboy, reveals that it takes him a while to forgive people who offend him, because he struggles with forgiving.
The singer revealed this while appearing as a guest on ‘The Zero Condition’ podcast where he spoke on his musical opinions and life.
when the topic of forgiveness came up, the singer stated that forgiving people who wronged him was very difficult for him.
He noted that he takes it very personal when someone wrong him because he tries his best to always do right by people.
“It’s hard for me to forgive and forget, I can’t lie. I’m sorry but I’m trying though. I can hold a grudge because one thing I like to do when it comes to relationships with people is to make sure I do everything right. So when someone acts funny with me I take it personally because I’d never do that to you, why are you doing that to me? That’s why I take it personally” He said.
He also stated that, when he eventually forgives anyone who wronged him, he can’t let the person into his space again.
“I might even forgive but it would take a while though, but I’d forgive, It’d be very difficult to give the person access again,” he stated.
Joeboy concluded by sharing an advice that a friend once gave to him, he said, reducing one’s expectations of other people helps a lot.
