Forgive and forget does not work in relationships

20 June 2016, 18:36 Shakila Alivitsa

You know the way most people look back, eons later and only say that they wished they had seen or known what they had gotten themselves into.

Most of the time it is because you actually did know the thing about relationships is that we tell ourselves; forgive and forget is also applicable here.

Maybe it is but liberally. We tend to know a lot about someone and the way they are by looking at the relationship through clear glasses. Most of the time you have yourself to blame when you are in the situation you are in. No one will tell you because they are afraid of your backlash, so the other person carries all the blame. They may be evil or bad but you knew and you thought you could change them, or heaven help us, pray for them. Prayer is good but…. (You get what I am saying; let us not even go there)

Forgetting in a relationship does not work because you always have to keep asking yourself when something keeps happening, if you can keep handling it. You have to ask yourself whether you are still going to stick around and keep putting up with it. And what else has changed/ If it is still the samae then why are you there. You only have yourself to blame when you choose not to move on but keep putting up with the same. It is all about being liberal and being practical.

Don’t look back years later and hold someone else accountable for your actions. It was all you. It was always you. No matter what you choose to tell yourself.
