    Which is more important? To forgive or to forget?

      Depending on the situation, I'd say I'd rather forgive. Forgetting takes time. You may forgive but can never forget.

      Close your eyes for a second and imagine what it's like to have breast cancer. Imagine the fear, the uncertainty and the pain!
      Well according to the ACS this is how 211K women and 460 Men will feel this year. Let's prove to them (us) that they are NOT alone. WUSLU will be giving ALL profit to Breast cancer research for all sales until 10PM on Friday 2/12/10! The least you can do is to share this with ALL your friends

      I think they may be two different things. You can forgive but it's hard to forget.

    As I told my ex, I might forgive but I'll never forget.

    It really depends on the situation, I would never forgive someone who murdered a member of my family or a friend. And I forget nothing !

    I don't think you can ever forget, but you can forgive.

    Forgiving is most important, although it's often hard to actually feel it. Forgetting is another thing. Takes a while sometimes. Too bad we don't come with a button that can be pushed on & off to forgive & forget.

    both,but forgiveness can lead to the other step

    and that is to forget

    I think forgiveness is most important.  It is the act of forgiving that sets one free from the circumstance.  As long as one holds a grudge, they will never be free, and bitterness eats the one who holds it, not the one it is aimed at.

    To forget is different.  Deleting something form the memory is almost impossible, but how we feel about it is under our control (in the long run).
