If you say you can forgive but not forget, maybe you haven’t really forgiven? Inability to forgive those who have hurt you means that you carry the burden of negative and damaging emotions like righteousness and anger, limiting your chance of happiness. You also stay a victim. You have the right not to forgive. You may feel the offending person does not deserve forgiveness but you can make a choice now to be altruistic, forgive and feel the burden lift. You might have to start with yourself. What do you need to stop being angry? Let go and forgive.
