I struggle with forgiveness. People have hurt me, and every time I think of those people, regardless of whether or not they've changed, a shadow of the hurt is still there. I've learned a lot about 'letting go', meditation, contemplation, empathy etc... but memories still come back loud and clear. It's not that I hate or even dislike the people that hurt me, a lot of them were actually trying to help (out of ignorance). I just can't see a side of the situations that would make me happy to have experienced them though. Has anyone actually succeeded at fully forgiving and/or forgetting? And if so - how?
