Don't tell someone with trauma to forgive and forget. It's not that easy. Forgiving is a personal decision that is only up to them. They are not a better or a worse person depending on what they choose to do.

It takes a minute to have a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone... but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

Quote
People who have heads and feet but no minds and no ears — there are mobs of them. To think that beings with bodies can all go on existing along with that which is bodiless and formless — it can never happen! A man’s stops and starts, his life and death, his rises and falls — none of these can he do anything about. Yet he thinks that the mastery of them lies with man! Forget things, forget Heaven, and be called a forgetter of self. The man who has forgotten self may be said to have entered Heaven.
Zhuangzi, The Complete Works of Zhuangzi, Watson tr. (Ch 12)

She floated away on the riptide of dementia, ultimately a speck on the horizon, waving for as long as she could to her deeply confused children onshore.
