Many people think that some actions can be forgiven and while others think it cannot. Forgiveness helps everybody feel light and get rid of hard feelings that haunt everybody. Forgiveness creates positive feeling in one’s mind. People who are close, hurt or betray an individual is difficult to forgive. This is prevalent in the story where in Amir and Hassan were best
There is a way to be good again In Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner, two types of forgiveness can be found. Characters forgive each other or themselves, both pursuing happiness. However, it is questionable whether their forgiveness is true. In this essay, several situations and characters in The Kite Runner will be discussed, but first of all, the two types of forgiveness will be examined. Firstly, there is a rather self-evident kind of forgiveness: the situation in which a victim forgives a culprit for his mistakes.
This is seen to be true in The Kite Runner when Amir learns about remorse and absolution through his life experiences. Over the course of the novel, Amir is presented as a morally ambiguous character because of the two traits, guilt and self-forgiveness, he is presented with. This moral ambiguity comes into play when Amir commits a hurtful act, but is not seen as totally corrupt. The reason for this is, “we can relate to [morally ambiguous characters]...” (Zafar, Paragraph 1). People can relate to Amir’s character because many have gone through similar situations in which they had to overcome remorse for their actions.
He becomes angry, but I think that he needed to work through his anger to find that calming feeling of acceptance through his struggles.

You can either deal with it and become stronger from it, or you can be a bum and let it destroy you. Even though a broken heart may seem painful at the moment when you first experience it, learn to treat yourself respectfully and to always keep loving yourself. Don’t let anger and grief bring you down. Always surround yourself with people who love and care about you. “Always choose love because even though there is pain, to suffer in love is not to suffer in vain; it takes you to higher levels of consciousness.” When you learn to love yourself, this is when you initially mend your broken
In the book, Morrie also said, “Forgive yourself before you die. Then forgive others” because you don’t know when you will see them for the last time (Albom 164). Morrie has an interesting viewpoint when it comes to forgiveness. I agree that it is important to forgive people, even though you are allowed to take your time with it. There have been instances where I found it difficult to forgive people that hurt me for a while, but I worked continuously towards pardoning them.
He was overwhelmed of the security and respect shown by the community. Moreover Okonkwo visualized his acceptance in the community and he determined to impress the villagers.

The Day of Atonement is very significant in the people’s life. Humans have a tendency to make mistakes but what matters is that a person realises all his wrongdoings and then chooses a path that would lead him to repentance. So, a quality by which it can be said that Amir was a good soul is that he accepted his offences and also decided to walk towards the right direction. Everyone must redeem all offences done on the Day of Atonement for the sake of peace and relaxation from the
