    ...but I never forget.


    Some people say it's the same thing.
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    What's your take?

    Not the same thing. How can one forget?

    I don't know, but that is the saying, "forgive and forget"

    To me it's different. Holding a grudge implies you'll get even, remain angry. Not forgetting is just that, you won't get fooled again but have moved on. Let go of the anger.

    I can’t help you here...

    I often forgive, but rarely forget.

    Just because you forgive a m'er f'er doesn't mean you have to play dumb and be their doormat next time.

    Life tends to take care of that, without my help.

    Thought so.

    That's not forgiving, that's just moving on.

    Holding a grudge implies whatever slight has been committed against you having some sort of active effect on your existence. Not forgetting simply implies wisdom gleaned.

    Someone famous once said "Trust, but verify."

    No grude, but some people need to be kept in check.

    Remembering is more measured than a grudge.

    Had a long reply but backspaced. Basically, it took years but I finally am done trying to let things go. Not bitter. No grudge. But I'm done and just leave me alone, and I mean completely alone.

    Yeah, that sums it up.

    There are people I don’t like for good reason but I don’t carry around grudges. If someone who’s wronged me needs help, he can get it elsewhere but I don’t wear my distaste on my sleeve.
