Learn, Forgive and Forget?

The Bible has plenty to say about forgiveness. … The Greek word translated as “forgive” in the New Testament, aphiēmi, carried a wide range of meanings, including to remit (a debt), to leave (something or someone) alone, to allow (an action), to leave, to send away, to desert or abandon, and even to divorce.

Is it correct to say forget?

It may be in the present, but to use ‘I forget‘ implies that it’s a habit, which isn’t what you want to say (I hope!) here. Therefore, unless it is actually a habit you’re talking of, you’d just say ‘I forgot […]’ “I forget” is more of a general statement, as in “I forget things sometimes.”.

Some common synonyms of forget are disregard, ignore, neglect, overlook, and slight.

Emotional blackmail describes a style of manipulation where someone uses your feelings as a way to control your behavior or persuade you to see things their way.

Jesus answered, ‘I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times. ‘” “You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you.” “And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.” This reads conditional. It’s self-serving emotional blackmail. 

What do forgiveness and forgetting really mean? According to the Oxford Dictionary, the number one definition for forgiveness is to “stop feeling angry or resentful towards (someone) for an offense, flaw, or mistake.” And to forget is to: “fail to remember.” 

When does the learning start? 

Learning occurs when we can: Gain a mental or physical grasp of the subject. Make sense of an issue, event, or feeling by interpreting it into our own words or actions. Use our newly acquired ability or knowledge in conjunction with the skills and understanding we already possess.

Some learning is immediate, induced by a single event (e.g., being burned by a hot stove), but much skill and knowledge accumulate from repeated experiences. Active learning occurs when a person takes control of his/her learning experience. Since understanding information is the key aspect of learning, learners need to recognize what they understand and do not. By doing so, they can monitor their own mastery of subjects. 

Let’s analyze and learn first before we go ignore, but I’d rather not forget. (EZM)

Emotional blackmail describes a style of manipulation where someone uses your feelings as a way to control your behavior or persuade you to see things their way.

Emotional blackmail and FOG are terms, popularized by psychotherapist Susan Forward, about controlling people in relationships and the theory that fear, obligation and guilt are the transactional dynamics at play between the controller and the person being controlled. Wikipedia

  1. 💜 This is Awesome and I AM Gonna “Forget” it; just kidding…if YOU!!! Research http://www.ericberne.com what YOU!!! Realise is that YOU!!! Have a Photographic Memory; put simply NoThing is EVER!!! “Forgotten”…it’s Either SubConscious or Conscious; then Driving ALL of Our CHOICES!!! and DECISIONS!!!…to “Forgive” Gives Us ALL Real Release from Painful Burdens of Memory; the Setting of Boundaries and Asserting Them means restricting a Perceived Transgressor to a Distance whether Permanent or, in a Healing, Psychologically Healthy way, Sending SomeOne to Their Virtual Room to THINK!!! about What They Have Said or Done…which is a Very Healthy Form of Temporary Distancing; so Give It a Go while YOU!!! Remember 🤫🤭😉

    1. Does one drop one’s guard when one forgives someone? Why give them a second chance. Can’t one simply let go without involving others? We don’t forget things but can choose not to think of them.
      I believe there is Christian forgiveness and psychological forgiveness. I’d rather talk to the chair than with a priest.

      Cheers and thanks for the visit

      1. 💜 I Feel for YOUR!!! Suffering Dream; a Jewish Girl, a friend of mine, was anally raped by a rabbi and now SHE!!! wears nappies as an adult due to anal control failure; please Accept My Apologies for Being Blunt but this Nasty Religious Sexual Abuse Stuff NEEDS!!! Exposing Be it Boys or Girls

        …💛💚💙…

      2. I agree, but it is a societal problem. Parents and family need to learn from the past, be responsible teachers themselves, and stay in supervised groups.

  2. 💜 YOU!!! ARE Most Welcome; it’s a Pleasure to Share and Serve so THANK YOU!!! for Courageously Serving, Religion is Wrong

    …💛💚💙…
