Let’s say someone did you wrong! Lied to you, cheated on you, took money from you and never return it, etc.
Would you forgive and forget what they did?
Forgiving and forgetting are different. We forgive with our heart but we forget with our brain.
Can you forgive someone who took money from you and never gave them back? Who cheated on you? Lied to you?
Yes of course we can. It might take time and depends on what happened and what they did but it is doable.
However, can you forget what they did? If they ask you again for money will you give them? If they cheated will you take them back?
The answer is definitely a No!
I forgive you for what you did but trust me I will never forget.
Always forgive people when they do you wrong but never forget what they did. You forgive for yourself, for your emotional well being but never ever forget what they did.
If they done it once they will do it twice.
Fool me once shame on you! Fool me twice shame on me!
