  • Nope I think its human nature to hold onto the past and the issues of the past. There are some things in life that are harder for others to get over and it's natural for them to bother you from time to time or be reoccuring thoughts. When it comes to the cheating that is why there is a saying "I can forgive you but I can't forget"

    I feel like an elephant sometimes I DONT FORGET NOTHING!
    and... it sucks sometimes.... but i will give you my own advice even though I cant take it.... we have to stop seeing the world as a half empty glass of water and see it has half full. BE POSITIVE! Dont always think negative it will drag you down forever :(

  • as they say to err is human, to forgive is divine. It is hard to do. I agree with bubblycute, you can forgive, but you do not have to forget. I also agree with JNS25, you need to think positive. What you think of is what your life produces for you. (garbage in, garbage out).

    If you concentrate on the good things you want in your life, they will start to materalize. Any time you think of something bad, have a mood shifter. A mood shifter is a favorite thought, pet, baby anything that brings a smile to your face. You have now stopped the negative thoughts and are telling the universe to send you good thoughts in the future. Try really hard to do this consistenly over the next 30 days, and you will be surprised as to how many less negative thoughts you will start to have.

    Good Luck
