Forgiving is not easy as revenge is the natural reaction. To err is human and to figive divine. It is not easy for a norman human to act divine. But some are really divine and they easily forgive. As a policy, it is better to fogive on petty issues that don harm much. It is also okay to forgive when the erring person sincerely seeks pardon. But the really wicked should not be forgiven and appropriate lawful action should be taken against them.
To forgive somebody or forget the whole incident depends on your mindset. Forgiving is a conscious action and is comparatively an easy job that you can do depending upon the situations and your conscience. Forgetting happens naturally but without your conscious effort. It is difficult to forget because it is related to your memories.
We all are know the famous saying is , "God forgive, Men forget".
This is the general nature of human being. If we want to forget anything it is not easy to do. On the other hand you always thing about that. But if you want forgive from your soul it is so easy. Your mental pressure is exactly gone.
Personally, I feel both are tough but if one learn to forget and forgive then life becomes easier. I always believe one can forget only when he/she is able to forgive. So, for me it's like 'to forget' is followed by 'to forgive'.
Being a human, both forgiving and forgetting is not easy, but trying to forgive someone and by forgetting the bad incident that happened to you is the only way to keep your mind healthy and will also keep your grudges away. Unless we don't forgive and forget, these grudges keep on accumulating and ultimately bad elements like jealousy, resentment, anger, etc start finding their way into our thoughts.
Forgiving or forgetting both are not so easy tasks. We can't forget anything unless and otherwise we forgive them. But forgiving is not so easy task also but we have to forgive then for our own peace of mind . If we don't forgive, the issue will be bugging us like thats. So forgiving will be a better thing to do then we can forget it.
My father always used to say, "It takes a minute to break a relationship and lifetime to maintain it".
Similarly most of us choose to forgive our near and dear ones most of the time to keep our relations alive. However, even when we want we are never able to forget the hurt he or she caused us. And reliving the moment brings back the pain but even then we move on.
