To forgive and forget is not always easy. Some people forgive but do not forget, others do both and still others forget until they remember and refuse to forgive. For example, in any relationship, marriage, and even friendship, one person may do something to the other person. They may cheat on him or her, lie, or even gossip that somehow returns to the other person. Many couples try to work their differences out particularly if they have children. There are also the men and women who go out of their way to strip their partners of everything seeking revenge. If a teenager wrecks the family car and the insurance rates increase, the parents are more likely to forgive but will definitely not forget for a very long time. Forgiving is not a simple matter for most people. For example, a son or daughter may hurt a parent because they are angry. They may even hold a grudge. Yet the parents for the most part do forgive even though the child will not. This is also true in the workplace. A co-worker may steal your idea and present it as their own. You may work at solving the issue to receive credit but in the end you may not. Will you forgive and forget? Chances are absolutely not. In an old “Perry Mason” a daughter became devastated when her mother passed away. A man appeared claiming to be her long lost father who had abandoned her and her mother sixteen years ago. The mother’s brother went out of his way to never forgive and forget by paying a man to pretend to be her father and had him arrested in a small town years ago so that if the real dad returned he would have no claim. Of course Perry figured it out. It was an intricate plot. Most of the time when people hurt others they cannot forgive and forget. They even seek retaliation. How do you feel about that?
