|Forgive & Forget|
It is often said that we can forgive but not forget. In truth, a forgiving feeling comes into being only after forgetting.
Worthy of being
Spirit of future
Another truth of forgive and forget is that we must remember it is the action we felt was taken against us which we need forgive and forget — not the person. This reasoning is clear to me each time I read the poem Night Mail by W. H. Auden.
You can listen to the verse written for the documentary film. (Fast forward to 19:20 or so for "Night Mail" by Auden)
The last line of Auden's verse says it all for me...
For who can bear to feel himself forgotten?
