Forgive, Okay But Do I Have To Forget?


Okay so I can hold a grudge. Most of the things that I hold on to are because I am overly sensitive about what people think of me. I generally take it personally even if it isn’t meant that way. Anyway there’s nothing so comfy as a good grudge. In the spirit of moving forward I have blogged about the concept of forgiving. To move in the right direction, we have to let go and forgive. I like the idea, talk a good game and recently I think I’ve let some stuff go finally, but I haven’t forgotten. So my question is have I truly forgiven? Does the perceived offense have to disappear from memory or can it surface occasionally? I would like to shake some of this stuff forever because I believe it takes up space that I need for other thoughts. So what do you think? All or nothing?
