Negatively, dreaming of forgiving may be a sign that you are absolving people who may keep repeating the bad things they’ve done to after you do. Allowing emotions to overpower your judgement making you forgive too easily. Letting your guard down too easily or not respecting yourself as much as you reserve to. Reestablishing bad relationships or bad habits because you are not thinking objectively. Forgiving yourself for something dishonest or evil. Absolving yourself of harm caused to others because it simply doesn’t feel good being guilty. Letting go of guilt for things you are not guilty of because you take on too much responsibility for others actions.
