I was always taught to forgive others so I would be treated mercifully and not carry around bad feelings.
But because I always carry around feelings, it is not so simple. Also, the ones who treat you badly because they can, don’t seem to have to wrestle with these issues.
My brand of madness means that I obsess and don’t forget the negative experiences and behaviors. They collect like dust bunnies and crowd the deepest corners of my mind.
Are you able to forgive? Does that mean that you can forget? If you know how, could you teach me?
