Nietzsche thought forgetfulness was essential to human existence, without it "there could be no happiness, cheerfulness, hope, pride, immediacy..." Forgetfulness is similar to forgiveness in that it requires we let go of negative emotions that harm us. But how does one forgive the unforgivable? Nazis? Child molesters? Do they deserve forgiveness? My guest Paul Gilmartin of the Mental Illness Happy Hour discusses how he forgave his abusive mother. Brutally honest and touching, you will love Paul even more than you already did.
