Easier to forgive than forget.

I have a hate in my heart. It is killing me from inside. I never had this hate before when I was in high school. I could love anyone and everyone and overlook their faults to such a degree that I feel I could forgive someone as horrible is Fidel Castro, Saddam Hussein or even Hitler. I was not the type of hippie loving person who loved everyone. In the back of my mind I knew people had thier faults but I usually overlooked them because everyone has faults and you should forgive them thier faults.

Nowadays if someone makes a mistake, I remember the mistake and replay it in my mind until I end up hating the person. Its a lot easier to say forgive and forget. I wish sometimes I could just forget all the stupid things people have done to me so that I can get on with my life.

I'm the same way...unfortunately, I've always been this way. It's extremely hard for me to forget something that you have done, whether it's to me or not.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting, I hope you'll return!
Oh, and about your post, yeah forgiving and forgetting is easier said than done, but I've learned to choose my battles and as I get older, I realize that hatred and not being able to forgive is really the greatest hinderence to myself, no one else is loosing sleep over it at night, so as I get older, letting go isn't easy, but it gets easier. Everything happens for a reason.

I love quotes and these are some I try and live by daily:

“It's not the strongest of the species that survives, nor most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”

"Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option."

"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and still expecting different results."

"There comes a point in your life when you realize:
Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore..
And who always will. So, don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future."

"LIFE is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So, LOVE the people who treat you RIGHT, FORGET about the ones who DON'T and believe that everything HAPPENS for a REASON. If you GET a chance, TAKE it. If it CHANGES your life, LET it. NOBODY said that it'd be EASY, they just PROMISED it would be WORTH it."

"It is what it is."

I think it's easier to forgive than to forget but, then again I hold grudges like they're going out of style. This makes a GREAT writing prompt, might blog about it later this season!
