Forgiveness is not where you continue to remember and acknowledge the act occurred but you forgive the act because this is the "right" thing to do or what God wants you to do. That is a false forgiveness and an ego strategy in which you "fake pity" on the other person but you make sure they continue in bondage (as well for you) by never forgetting what happened.
True forgiveness is a part of Love, and Love looks past. Love looks past the false to see itself. When you operate from Love, from true forgiveness, you come from your heart, not from your ego mind which is trying to punish. With true forgiveness you see from a much higher perspective, a heart/God perspective.
When we "for give," we are literally giving away all of the anger resentment, and bitterness around what occurred, and when we do this, we are truly giving away the memory, as if nothing ever happened.
