Forgiving somebody means that you no longer hold anger or resentment toward a person who has offended or wronged you. Once you do this, you should resume the normal relationship you had with that person before the event occurred. Forgetting is, of course, when you no longer remember what happened. This is the act of “letting it go” or “moving on.” When you finally forget, you no longer associate the person with the offense.

Forgiving a person and forgetting that person did to you is the only way you can resume a normal relationship with that person. Being able to do this is also a way to build personal character. Nobody is perfect, after all, and there will eventually come a time when you wrong somebody else. You’ll want that person to forgive you and forget what you did when that time comes.

Forgiving and forgetting is important in most religions as well. For example, Christianity teaches that God will not forgive you for your sins if you cannot forgive people when they hurt you.

You may not forget that you were wounded, but not focusing on the wound can allow you to forget that the real wound is healing without you even realizing it.

The next time you look up you may recognize that INDEED you do have a SCAR to show that “it did happen” but it will no longer be an issue……… ( MATURITY ) ……it takes time but can be done.
