Forgetting can be healthy. Traditions, cultures, loyalties and rewards are built on remembering, but then so are feuds, vendettas, comeuppance and hatred. All things considered, isn't remembering is vastly over-rated? Someone should speak up for forgetting, it's a much-needed talent.
Forgetting and remembering stand side by side in our arsenal of innate skills. But it is remembering that gets all the glory, while forgetting is maligned and misunderstood. Forgetting has its place, just as remembering does.
