Forgive and Forget?
This basic concept is easy for me.
To a point...
These two ‘F’s go hand in hand: if I do one, I am able to do the other. In either order really.
But if it’s something I’ve already F&F’d, and it happens again... Both ‘F’s are out the window and I’m much less willing (or able) to F&F the same thing again.
Makes sense, right? 😜
It kinda goes for people, too.
For example, if a person does something that hurts me once, and then apologizes - I can forgive and forget.
However, if that person does the same thing repeatedly, I am more inclined to forgive and forget that person as well as the thing that hurt me.
Because, truth be told, I don’t enjoy or appreciate it when someone hurts me and takes my acceptance and forgiveness for granted.
Am I wrong? How many times are you willing to forgive something before you forget the someone along with it?
