    I would submit that a better formula than “forgive and forget” is “forgive and not-remember”. That is, following Jay Adams, forgiveness is a three-fold promise: you’re going to not bring the matter up again (you’re going to not-remember) either to yourself, to the offending person, or to anyone else. Forgetting is nice and all, but we can’t command ourselves to do that. But with this different formulation, forgetting is a natural by-product of not-remembering. As someone once said, “Bitterness has great study habits: review, review, review!”
