"Forgive and Forget " Can this be done in reality? How many of us follow this? As for me i can do it to a certain extent. What do you have to say about this?

Yes but it take sometimes to have forgiveness and forget. Both of these words are hard to do. But forgiveness can easily be given while forgetting is hard to do. But it depends on the individual if he or she is open to this options. i believe that having these two can also be a burden to the person who is harboring this.

I can forgive easily since the Lord Jesus has instructed us to do so, forgetting takes some time, but I don't have any bitter thoughts for the person who has wronged me, I leave it in God's hand and forgive.

In the Holy Bible, God commands us to forgive so that the Father in heaven will also forgive us. God also said that vengeance is for Him and so whatever bad thing people do to us, we should forgive them and let God do the revenge. But forgetting is a different thing. We may forgive but it does not follow that we forget because we have the mind to remember things. But also, it doesn't mean that we are not forgiving if we couldn't forget.

Forgiving is one thing and forgetting is quite another thing. Even though one can get to the point of forgiving, which is difficult of itself, forgetting is something that is close to impossible to do. I am not sure that we are supposed to forget. Remembering helps protect us from it happening again.

i can forget a person for his/her mistakes a few times but if the thing continues i wont forgive and wont forget that he/she has misused by forgiveness and repeated the sam ething again.

i don't think any of us really "forgive and forget".i always say i will forgive but i will not forget.i know that's not the right attitude but its really hard to live by that phrase.
