Proverbs 17

Verse 9 - "Whoever covers an offense seeks love, but he who repeats a matter separates close friends."

When we are offended, we repeat the matter to ourselves, at least.  When this happens, it either leads to bitterness or we decide to forgive them.  When we speak of moving on, or forgetting it, it isn't clear what's going on in our heart, and our actions will reveal it over time.  We either separate from the offender and remain angry inside, or we really do move on and not let the offense come between us.
