Forgive and Forget

I've heard this so many times - you just need to forget about it. You need to forgive him. The Bible says you have to forgive. The nicest response I can muster up is a big eye roll and a sarcastic "whatever." I saw a quote today - I like it -

We are told to forgive and forget. But I couldn't forgive and I couldn't forget.
Then I realized. I have a right to remember and I leave the forgiving to a higher being.

People can always find a way to forgive - but, our minds will never forget things that were done to us.

It is certainly okay to remember - after all, what has happened to us in our past is always going to be a part of us. It shapes who we are.
