I can't. No matter how much i want to forgive them and forget it..
I just can't. It'll be something that'll stick with me for a long time.

Easier said than done. Not everything can be easily forgiven and forgotten (although i'm not saying people should hold grudges for every single little mistake)

All that can be said is that it's not that difficult to forgive someone (time does help in healing process sometimes,) but it's difficult to forget what they might have done, esp in cases like betrayal

I think it depends on what the person or persons have done to you .
maybe once i could forgive if it was not harming some one...

I just let time pass and if i met that person who did something wrong to me and still I feel the angry and the urge of retaliation... it's payback time..

I guess the saying is true that the best medicine for the emotional wound is time... but if time can't heal it... it is really indeed payback time.

i read an article...it says:
"our minds do not function like computers with their convenient "delete" function. We DO remember the bad things others have done to us. The central issue is not that i forget, but what i do when i remember how the person has wronged me."

Gregory Jones says: " It is largely a mistake to say,"forgive and forget." Rather, the judgment of grace enables us, through the power of the Holy Spirit,to remember well. When God promises to "blot out (Israel's)trangessions" and "not remember (Israel's) sins", God is not simply letting bygones be bygones. Rather, God is testifying to God's own gracious faithfulness."

"So when God says that He does not remember our sin,it means that He does not remember them against us, that He does not treat us on the basis of our sins."

and i think thats what true forgiveness is all about.

yes....

it's because you don't forgive someone if you didn't forget what he or she had done on you..
