Sometimes in our life, we're met with different situations and problems and some of these involve mistakes or pains created by people we love.. and it is never easy to forget.. Somehow, we can forgive but it is really hard to forget and retain the relationship as good as before.. have you experience this way also?

yes thats true. through time we can easily forgive someone coz we admit that we are only human and even us also commit mistakes. but we cant forget the pain we have from them. its already create a scar in our heart that always be there. thats why people say that if people make mistakes no one forget, but if people make good things, no one remember. as for as once theres a stain already then the stain will stay there no matter how we clean it.

.. you have a point.. sometimes or most of the times, people only remembers the pain but forgets the right and good things done.. that's a very painful reality..

I really agree with that. It's easy to forgive someone but it doesn't that you forgot what they did. The best thing to do is just prove that person that you've change and that your sincere about it. In time maybe that person could learn to forget everything.

That's true! i have my friend long time ago but as time goes by we have small quarrel that got me irritated and make a big problem. This person that i've trusted most, loved most and entertain well but things turn different now that we are not good friends anymore like before. Even though she is sorry of what she had done but it seems time had made changes, although i forgive her faults but still what she done wrong to me will not be forgotten.

It's so easy for me to forgive someone who have wronged me. Yes, because I don't want to think ill of others, I don't want to have grudge with anybody whatever is the cause. But I do find it hard to forget...everytime I see the person , I can't help it but remember the pain he have caused me. I don't know, maybe in time I will forget.

I can't forgive, I can't forget neither. I can try to forgive, but if someone had hurt me bad, I just can't.

Yes and it depends on the offense. If it involves trust its really hard to bounce back and just say "ok i will trust you again". You may start to act normally as before but you know deep inside your very cautious now and eveready on the defense mode. Just as how it takes time to built trust, it takes double time now to gain it again. But u forgave and you try not to think of the pain again but still you are very very cautious now.
