Keeping in mind what my parents always said. It is about 'Forgive and Forget' Which I practice very perfect... I never keep hatred in my chest, because it will cause me a burden of stress. It is like an acid which is strong and erosive, It will turn my mind violent and aggressive.When I forget, I forget it totally complete, Like clicking the mouse on the button 'DELETE'

Unless we learn how to forget past sins, we will always live in that past. Bitterness or guilt will continue to eat away at us like a cancer. Forgive and be forgiven. And then forget it.

For....getting, I get peace of mind as a God's blessing. Not only peace but also pleasure in my mind..
