Forgiving is the easy part

You can get over this latest disaster. Whatever betrayal, embarrassment, or bewildering behavior you lived through, will be a distant memory soon enough. You do have to let it go, though. That is the hard part for me – the letting go. It seems that my mind wants to go over and over whatever happened, trying to figure out my part in it, and trying to figure out how to make it better. But here’s the thing: sometimes it really isn’t you, and there is nothing that you can do to make it better except pretend it didn’t happen, and that may not be the best way to go. Only you can decide for you. I am sure it is different for every person. For me, the forgiving is the easy part; the forgetting is harder.
