I've got the first part down but I honestly need help on the second.
I just can't do it. I know the scriptures. I know. I just can't. How do you wipe out a memory? And then my personality is such that when the thought comes back to mind, I can't help but feel the pain or anger all over again.
I can forgive, why not forget? I forget everything else. As Msfitzita brought out I'm a prime candidate for Alzheimer's. I just wish I had selective memory.
How do you open your heart completely and have unconditional love for someone when you can't forget what they've done?
Maybe I haven't actually forgiven. I thought I had. I wish I could.
Life would be so much easier if I could just forget.
