Forgive, Forget and Live On

Forgive and forget. Two things the human race finds so hard and virtually impossible. Yet one did not see God push you away when you had made a wrong choice; He welcomed you with arms wide open after forgiving and forgetting.

The reason behind this hub is because of a wrong I wanted to right. I had a fight with my dad and things were said that I instantly wish I could take back. Dad, I know you're just looking out for your little girl and I never meant to disappoint you the way i did. I'm sorry and I forgive you for the harsh words which hurt both of us and I love you.

After the fight, I sat down and began to sort out an old box filled with paper and other little collections of mine and I came across something which made me cry even harder. A birthday card from last year opened my eyes and wiped away my anger. The words my father put in the card were "No matter what happens, you will always be my little girl and I love you." I realized at that moment that the world isn't out to get me. Karma isn't tailing me; my father is simply doing his best as a father should.

I urge each and every one of you to wrong a right today. Do not go to bed with an angry heart as that heart may become a weeping heart when Death knocks on the door. I've had my fair share of fighting and I hate every second of it. I'm a lover, not a fighter and I am going to right every wrong i've done starting with myself.

I don't hate my hair like i used to, i embrace the red colour as it's a part of me inherited by my dad. I love myself more than most girls could even love themselves. Why? Because i've stopped looking to be like some perfect model. I am me and i am unique in every way, just as you are!

I love my family despite the hardships we've endured. We've always been there for each other even when the outlook looked grim. To my friends, thank you for being there for me. I know I can be a total pain in the butt but we all still stick together like glue.


To all of my fellow hubber friends, thank you for everything. In some way, you have all helped me to grow into a better person. And so I leave you with a song which I try to live by as much as possible and I hope it's a source of inspiration to everyone.

Hi Cisco, thought I'd come across and have a look. You write really well. And I totally agree with you. Don't worry too much about whether you hurt your dad. The thing is, when you are a parent you forgive the child anything. Well... almost anything! But seriously, words just bounce of and all we care about is our child being safe, and loved. They can swear, kick rant and rave. But it does'nt matter. When you have a child you will be exactly the same. Thanks for becoming a fan, otherwise I would'nt have found your hubs. Cheers Nell

I dont remember who said it, but "To err is human, to forgive is divine"...and you got it, Pixie! You inspire me! And you are, indeed, a daughter to be proud of!

I totally agree with your sentiment on this one! It's not always the easiest thing to do, and the forgetting about it is even harder, but we do strive to be able to.

Thanks for a timely reminder

Family stuff is so hard, but you are right we have to have gratitude in each and every day, when we learn to love ourself fully it seems that many of the barriers in life just simply disappear. Thank you for the reminder.

You will always be the apple of your mom and dad's eyes. You are the very heart of their existence as their baby.The wonderful pleasure you give them when you smile or laugh or cut up or giggle or get silly, or show your very sweet love from your heart to them. Everything you give, or reveal is measured by moments of ecstasy in the eyes of mom and dad, when it is about you. Having a child to love, to hold, to hug, and to watch grow is all part of only one of many great and precious gifts from God to moms and dads. God Bless you.
