The prompt word is “remember”

Forgive and forget?

How many times do we hear that expression? If we forgive why is there that pressure that you must absolutely forget or else…Or else then what? The sky is going to fall? Is the person going to feel less forgiven?

Well, sorry, it just does not work that way. If you screw up, intentionally or unintentionally you have to face the music.  But to forget…nah-un…it goes under the belt of that person’s list of things they endured, learned to overcome.   Similarly, it goes under your list of mistakes you’ve, hopefully,  learned from…if you forget, you just might do it again.

A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. Namaste!

  1. Just because you have forgotten does not mean it has been forgiven. Just because you forgave doesn’t mean you should forget. Those moments helped to shape the both of you.
