In a recent discussion I debated whether forgiving means forgetting. I believe that to forgive does not mean you have forgotten the act. The opposing argument was that you have not forgiven if you have not forgotten the act.
The debate was sparked by the statement:
“It has been said, ‘time heals all wounds.’ I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone”
