Do you think we can forgive someone, when we never forget what that person put us through?
Most Helpful Girl
I have forgiven people for things they have done to me in the past. In addition, I have also 'elected' to forget those memories so I can move forward. Personally, if I am going to obtain closure then I try to forgive and forget. The difference for me is that issues that really hit home with me such as lying, cheating. betrayal, being used etc. I might be able to forgive the person but I will never, ever forget because the element of trust has been broken. When I lose trust in someone then it's over, I cannot get past it because it's too essential to me in relationships.
