Forget those things that are in the past. So you can move forward. If you never move forward you will never reach forth.
Lack of love, unforgiveness, bitterness, hatred are all walls that prevent us from reaching higher levels of spiritual understanding and revelation.
Many people hold on to how somebody mistreated them and do not forgive them. After a while the unforgiveness progresses into bitterness, which leads to hatred Your heart gets harder at each level of progression. (You become less compassionate, more selfish, and angrier).
These walls get thicker and thicker as days go by until you forgive the person that wronged you. Once you forgive them, the walls come down and you are free from burdens. Moreover, instead of limiting God due to your disobedience (forgiving others), you can become free and reach higher spiritual heights.
“For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” (Matthew 6:14-15)
“And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” (Ephesians 4:32)
