The Daily Post Writing Prompt – I Can’t Stay Mad at You

In response to The Daily Post Writing Prompt:

Do you hold grudges or do you believe in forgive and forget?

It really depends on the situation, but of course, I’ve been of the mindset  that nothing reprehensible is worth forgiving and forgetting.  But there are some things that can be forgiven (but not forgotten) and/or forgotten (but not forgiven).

It’s hard to overlook someone’s unjustifiably harsh treatment towards you or those you care about, when they don’t understand their actions.  It’s easier to forgive someone when they believe they’ve wronged you, even though they didn’t.  I also finally realized that life is far too short to hold grudges, and that realization has helped me reconnect and create a strong bond with a close friend.

All of this has happened to me in the span of less than a year.  I know it sounds crazy, but it’s the truth!
