“You can always forgive, but you just can’t really forget” Brian Littrell

Chinese symbol for forgiveness


“When you forgive, you in no way change the past – but you sure do change the future”

Bernard Meltzer

Is this quote 100% correct?

Forget about the future!

People are willing to forgive. But the bitterness is still present and continues in the future!

Forgiving is one thing and totally forgetting is another thing.

But in general, rarely do people forget.

Simply it means that in case you don’t forget, yourself telling that, you have forgiven is a lie.

“A person can apologize, and we can forgive them, but sometimes we just can’t forget the pain that they put us through” Unknown

My point is simple if you don’t forget then don’t claim that you have forgiven them.

My advice -ignore it and just move on…

This is the best solution.

What are your thoughts, my friend?

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  1. Forgiveness is easier than forgetting the hurt. And I think we should not forget it completely as we then expose ourselves to further betrayal from those same people. So don’t bear a grudge, but be careful in future

    1. Thank you, Ashley.
      The word ‘forget’ can be a good excuse to move on in life.
      Nobody can be Almighty to be generous.
      One can always forgive but can’t forget because certain wounds can never heal.
      Forgetting is only possible in cases of memory loss.
      Human life is nothing but a series of experiences where an opportunity is created to learn things by being exposed to hurts or mistakes.
      These experiences can make humans better people.
