How To Forgive And Forget: You Can’t Forget What You Don’t Truly Forgive

by Doc Orman, M.D.

How To Forgive Part 3This is the third in a series of three blog posts this week on the subject of true forgiveness.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just easily forgive and forget

Wouldn’t it be great if we could truly “let go” of our past, and forgive and forget whatever may have been done to us by other people, or perhaps things we may have done ourselves that we now regret?

Unfortunately, forgiving and forgetting are not all that easy to accomplish.  Not true forgiveness, that is.  Sure we can force ourselves to say the words “I forgive you” or “let’s forget the past and move on,” but often we do this without truly forgiving in our hearts. 

And if you can’t truly forgive in your heart, you can’t truly forget the past and move on.  To one degree or another, you’ll remain stuck in the past and you’ll continue to carry around lingering anger, pain, and blame until you do finally learn how to forgive.

The Problem With Learning To Forgive

The problem with learning how to forgive is that most of the advice you’ll receive about this subject won’t help you all that much.  This is because most spiritual and self-help advice aimed at helping people forgive doesn’t go deep enough.   It doesn’t really teach people how to gain a better understanding of the root causes of their anger and resentment in the first place.

Without this type of deep, well-grounded understanding about what causes human emotions to occur in general, and what causes the emotion of anger in particular, you will likely continue to find it difficult to forgive and forget.

On the other hand, once you do understand the basic underlying causes of human anger, including the internal causes which occur entirely within us, you’ll discover many new ways to truly forgive.

New Forgiveness Help Is Available

I’ve been teaching these principles of how to better understand the internal causes of human anger for more than 30 years now.  And most people who learn them find that it’s much less difficult to forgive.   They also find that they create much less anger and resentment in their lives, so there is much less lingering anger and blame to have to forgive later on.

If you want to learn more about my teachings on this subject, and get some very sound advice about how to learn to truly forgive and forget, you can download my new Kindle book on forgiveness for free, between 4/15/13 through 4/19/13.  Just click on the link below:
