Forget. It would be a wonderful gift be able to forget. Forget words spoken in anger. Forget words spoken out of hurt and pain. Forget ones miss-steps along the way. Forget those areas of life where we look back and think, “If only I had made a different decision…” But we can’t forget. I think the key to getting past the things we can’t forget is forgiving. Forgiving others, forgiving ourselves and begging for forgiveness from God. Then you get up and walk on, remembering those places without the pain attached. Remembering the lessons those places taught us along the way. No, we can’t forget, but we can move forward, remembering the lessons of the past.
