Deeply Engrained Habit
Maybe one of the reasons the Amish are better prepared to forgive others is that they don’t expect life to be fair. The habit of forgiveness is so deeply engrained in how the Amish view the world—so much a part of who they are—that when things do go wrong, they’re already in a forgiving mode, so the problem doesn’t have a chance of growing into a story of resentment.
