I’ve been thinking a lot about the idea of forgiveness. Raising Christian, the concept of forgiving others is not new to me. And I like to think that I have been pretty forgiving with the people in my life who have ‘wronged’ me. But here’s the thing, I may choose to move past the wrong-doing. We may ‘still be friends’ and all that jazz. But it’s not that I have /forgotten/. Forgetting about it and letting it go just seems… too risky and in complete opposition to another life lesson: Live and Learn.
The idea behind ‘live and learn’ is that we will make mistakes; it’s part of life. However, we are meant to learn from these mistakes to avoid repeating them again. So if you /forget/ about the wrong-doing of someone in your life, are you learning from your mistake?
How do you balance? Do you need to forget in order to truly forgive them? Just wondering…
