Absolved #atozchallenge

They cribbed about the dressing style.

They shouted at the raw manners.

They mocked at the verbal abilities.

He stood silent, ever smiling to the hard hitters.

Then one day he achieved what they dreamt.

He prayed for them to be forgiven for the ignorant seldom know the right path.

Do you believe in "forgive & forget"?

This post is a part of the A to Z Challenge 2016. Today's letter is A.


  1. sometimes it is much better to forgive and forget. Other times, it's best to forgive and remember. Great first post for the challenge!

    Someone has really hurt you and you find yourself feeling so sad, angry, or bitter that you can barely concentrate. Any time you see that person – or even just any time you close your eyes – all you can do is replay what happened and wallow in all of your sad feelings. If you want to move on with your life and learn to move past the pain, then you have to make a choice to forgive and forget. Easier said than done, huh?

  5. Very much so. Life is way too short to hold grudges.

  9. To forgive and forget is often a way to reclaiming life after a setback. As far the lessons learnt along the way, they have a way of coming back to us if we're open to learning.
    A wonderful start to the challenge. Keep rocking :D

    I am not sure about forgiving and forgetting. Sometimes it is just about accepting.

  14. Nice start to the Challenge! "Forgive and forget" is easy to say, not so easy to do.

  15. Aw, we can forgive but for somethings, one can never forget. Both are difficult in some circumstances. Nice beginning to the #AtoZChallenge. @sheilamgood at Cow Pasture Chronicles

  16. Forgiving can be much easier than forgetting. Sometimes the one who does the hurting has to help you get over it so you can forget.

  17. Welcome to the A-Z... it's both challenging and fun! I like the theme you've chosen, short stories are the most fun! You should try your hand at Six Sentence Stories, the link is on my sidebar. :-)

    This story resonated for me because we are all so quick to judge people from appearance and manor and often don't take the time to search beneath the surface or open our hearts and minds to the magic that might be unfolding before us! Forgiveness is a hard thing to do, but it is also the most freeing thing we can do for ourselves! Thank you for visiting my blog!
