Forgiving others means that we will not do or say anything to get even or show resentment for the wrongs done to us.  It also means that we try to put them behind us and not recall them whenever we see the offender. It means that we hope eventually to remember them for the good things and good times. But it is impossible to forget the past. (Sell, Charles. Unfinished Business. p 144-146.
