Forgive the offender for he didn’t know what he was doing. Forgive yourself for exposing your heart to damage. Forgive the past, let go of its shadow, and eventually you’ll forget the devastation it brought you.
I know how difficult it is to forget the wrong deed committed to you. But when I finally decided to forgive, I realized it isn’t necessarily about forgetting the act itself. In my case, I’ve forgotten how exactly it felt when I was hurt. I forgot the pain and my anger towards the person – by God’s grace. I guess that’s the first step to totally moving on.
