Today we are going to discuss the importance to forgive and forget in our lives and will also discuss the reasons why you should forgive but don’t forget in your life. Forgiving people is good quality but practically it is difficult to forgive anyone.

People always prepare themselves to make lesser troubles in their life. They do whatever they can to create a happy and peaceful life. But while living in a society, we have to make connections with many people, from different cultures and lifestyles.

We adjust ourselves to live in all kinds of circumstances. But we cannot become absolutely away from the nuisance in the surroundings. While living in the society we come across many experiences. With some people, our bonding becomes stronger and with others, we keep a distance to stay happy.

Also, some people may stay away from us, because we are also not perfect. Every person has some good and bad qualities. Our mind works as our thoughts and values. If our mind is positive, then we spread love in our surroundings.

And negativity makes us spread hatred in our surroundings. While living in the society we come across many bad customs and evil things. We come across many troubles in our daily life, but a person who balances between their emotions can live a stable life.

We feel more sad when somebody wrongs us, we feel morose and resentful. We think to hurt them back, but it is not a good decision. Taking revenge for someone’s mistake does not make us right. We will also become wrong like the other person.

We have to muster up enough courage to forgive him. Forgiveness is the best revenge. When you forgive him with your heart, your mind becomes relax and stable. Keeping the feeling of hatred in your heart will make your heart heavier and morose.

You can not change the other person’s habits or lifestyle, but you can definitely do it for yourself. Focus on yourself to move ahead by forgiving other’s sins. Keep your mind away from the feelings of resentment and reconciliation.

Every mistake teaches us lessons whether it is ours or others. Keep your mind attentive to find the teachings from mistakes. Always learn from your mistakes to improve yourself. Mistakes are the best way to show us our weaknesses and strengths.

Forgive the person who has done injustice to you but do not forget their mistakes. By forgiving, you remove the overwhelming feeling of hate from your heart but you should also learn the lesson that their mistake taught you. Always keep in your mind that, forgiveness is not for others, it is for our own benefit.

You do it to clear your heart from the feeling of resentment and reconciliation. By saying forgive and forget, I mean to forgive the person and forget their mistakes but always keep the learning you sensed in your mind.

Because every time you face such situations in life, you should not have to become sad and obsessed with negativity. Practice forgiving others, and ignoring their mistakes. Living life too seriously is also a reason for so many crises in our life. Be serious about your life goals and what is important for you is what is essential for a happy life. And ignore all other faults in your context.

Forgiving and forgetting will make our relationships stronger. By forgiving your partner you will show your true love for them and by forgetting their mistakes you will create lesser troubles between you and your partner.

In some conditions, it becomes difficult to forget their act that had hurt us greatly, yet you have to forgive them. Forgiveness is a must to do for a healthy mind. if you forget their mistakes they will also forget how badly they had hurt you and they will feel independent to do freely anything against you.

Forgetting is not Forgiving – Sadhguru |Sahilsharmablogs

Sometimes forgiveness reflects our weakness, but it’s not that like that. Forgiveness and punishment are both important. People may not forgive you from their heart but they just say that they had forgiven you, they keep resent in their heart and become emptied day by day.

Some people may really forgive you, but they will punish you to teach you righteousness. Also, some people may forgive you and forget your mistakes because they do not want troubles in their life. They just ignore the unnecessary troubles in their life. Forgive and forget their mistakes. But in some cases, you should forgive them but don’t forget their mistakes.
