Avoid harboring regrets about what might have been.

It's good you forgive and forget, that's the best thing to do if you're hurt, that doesn't mean you're a fool, but most importantly avoid being hurt by the same person, it hurts even more. In life holding grudges, can impede you from growing - both mentally, physically, and spiritually. And if you feel stagnated, you feel sad.
