75. But is it stored in your unconscious memory?
That might be even more dangerous.

Someone asked the Dalai Lama about dealing with people who do awful things to you. His response was to just forget it. And if that didn't work then try to deal with them in a compassionate way. You might be hurt but just think what their actions are doing in a karmic way.

Always be compassionate. My mother was not an affectionate person, either. Eventually I was able to see her in a different, more compassionate light. There was a piece of her that just was missing. I don't know that whe ever felt compassion toward anyone or anything - it just wasn't there.

It's kind of dumb to spend my life angry at a very damaged person.
