– anonymous, Letter to the Editor, The AdvocateRate it:
Solemos decir "perdón y olvido". Esa es mi humilde opinión la secuencia correcta. Si quieres olvidar a alguien o algún evento desagradable, primero debe perdonar. El perdón es el precursor de olvidar. Si vosotros no perdonáis, que nunca olvidará, y que alguien o ese evento desagradable se quedará con usted, tallada en el interior de su corazón y el fondo de tu mente. Como una cámara de magma de un volcán, a continuación, encarnar la lava ardiente de odio y cenizas volcánicas de malos recuerdos. Por lo que seguir adelante con la vida, usted debe aprender a perdonar, en primer lugar, incluso en las peores personas que redondear. La corriente de la vida sería entonces fluir suavemente y sin problemas - adelante y hacia arriba.
