Do you think it is possible to forgive and FORGET?

I have been told that I don't forgive and forget. I feel like I forgive but it would be stupid to forget things and let it happen again. I don't even thing I can just forget things. What do you think?

  • Unless you have alzheimers, of course you can't completely forget, right? lol
    Forgiving is finding a way of not feeling angry about something anymore even when you are thinking about the past. Forgiving is the hard part.Forgetting is impossible.
    Thats why we have history classes...so we don't let generations forget the past so it doesnt repeat itself.

  • It depends on what you are talking about. It is very possible and often time intelligent to forgive and forget a person.

  • Personally, I am the type of person who can forgive in time depending on what was done, but I can NEVER and will NEVER forget!

  • Right now....I am doing neither. My sister stole my identity and parents/siblings covered it up.

  • I don't know that it's possible to actually forget a wrong some one has done to you. Especially if that person is still in your life. I have a hard enough time forgiving and no luck at all forgetting.

  • I do the same as you... It's like they say
    Happens once Shame on you
