There have been times in life, I have wanted to forget something that I did or happened because the thought either brought torment, insecurity, embarrassment, etc. No doubt, you also. Things happen in life.
Plus, there have been times I have wanted to forget somebody or several due to being hurt, etc. The pain of remembering either/or was too great.
Giving thought to how to forget, I found myself Googling just that. Believe it or not, Google comes through yet again.
As I read the information and the six to ten steps on how to forget someone, etc., I had to laugh at some and come to the realization that no matter what you do in following the steps and recommendations, you can truly not forget. Our brain is so complex that a scent, sight or memory will be triggered.
Although the pain, as in my instance recently, I would like to forget in order to ease the pain, but in all honesty, I really do not want to forget. I just want to get through the pain and I will. Plus, I know that their life is woven into mine and always will be, and mine in theirs.
So many facets of my life are connected that I do not want to forget how they all came about. To toss them aside, to delete and block out all of the resources received, learned and love shown, it would be impossible. My life has been and was touched.
Given thought to another, someone that caused me great pain and years to require forgiveness and come to terms with the hatred they have toward me, still they are woven in my life and I am theirs, whether they like it or not. They can try to shut me out of their lives but family is family and the blood is there. Still woven, just not so tightly.
Believe it or not, your reading this, we are woven together. There might be something down the road that will bring this to your remembrance by being with someone. You have touched a life of someone or they have touched yours. Woven.
No matter how or whom we come in contact with, we are gently woven with one another. It’s pretty awesome to think of how we can or others affect one another. Perhaps just a kind gesture or even a brief smile that made your day or a touch of somebody’s hand on your arm to encourage.
In life, we are woven to care and show God’s Love.
