"Perge modo et qua te ducit via dirige gressum," said Venus to Aeneas.
Assuming the betrayal is a serious...I believe that forgiveness is possible. Forgetting? Only if you're irretrievably stupid.
Yes. I've done it before myself. About what? I don't know, because I've forgotten. Sounds trite, I know, but it's the truth.
Betrayal of trust comes in many forms. I’ve forgiven many and forgotten most. My own failure comes in those times I’ve been unable forgive. It gives them power over me and yet I cannot let them go. I suspect we all have that weight to carry.
What Birdie said, as usual...
Often times we betray ourselves by not living in reality concerning a relationship better off dead. We fail to hear the other saying it's over, time to move on.
Wait a minute. Did I read that correctly? You actually agree that we should strive to rise above our nature? Hmm. I take it you do understand the implications of that with regard to your homosexuality, n'est-ce pas?
Dear Thomas,Nope. Ce n'est pas.We should discern the supernatural. We should pine for it. We should rise above our base inclinations to war, greed, hostility, gluttony, envy, etc. Being gay is a manifestation of my God-given birth-instilled nature, like my natural inclination to do good when it does not benefit me personally. Being gay is part of the elevating staircase to the supernatural.
"...a manifestation of my God-given birth-instilled nature..."This is one of your articles of faith. Perhaps it has even become the primary dogma of your religion.Therefore, I shall not dispute it, in the interests of ecumenism.
forgive, yes. forget, haven't yet.
