How can one do teshuva for all the sins he forgot about? Especially the bein adam l’chaveiro issues, times he hurt someone, or even owed someone money but forgot about his debt (and was never reminded)?September 20, 2011 11:33 am at 11:33 am #811378kapustaParticipant
Theres a mashal about a young girl standing on a street corner selling apples. Someone comes over and knocks over the bucket and the apples start rolling all over the place. The girl just stands in her spot, watching the apples rolling. Someone else runs over and tells her to grab what she can.
For Bein Adam L’Chaveiro, if you can’t get everything, get whatever you can now.

I find it personally helpful to do tshuva on the spot. At the moment you discover something wrong, do it pronto.
When accepting a loan, tell the person that they can remind you of it but that usually you remember anyway, and please be mochel just in case something happens. It’s better to cover your bases and have a backup plan “just in case.”
As far as being ???? on something that you have no idea about, well, I have no idea either, other than to have in mind when we say ??? ??? ?????? ????? ??????? ???? ??????.
And btw, we are hopefully ALL ???? ????? at this time of year.September 21, 2011 12:25 pm at 12:25 pm #811384shmoelMember
Are there any known solutions for forgotten financial debts or the times you wronged a person you no longer can locate or totally forgot about the wrong you did him?September 21, 2011 2:05 pm at 2:05 pm #811385mikehall12382Member
Why not talk to Hashem and tell him you can’t remember all the sins you may have committed, but you are truly sorry and working hard to improve…September 21, 2011 3:48 pm at 3:48 pm #811386PeacemakerMember
It’s hard to see how one can be forgiven from a forgotten financial debt.
