It is my understanding that that is the case, especially if our confession contains an acknowledgement of and request for pardon from sins we may have forgotten.

I don't think we need to "try" to forget our sins, but there's no point either, imnsho, in hanging on to a remembrance of them if we have confessed them to God and been forgiven and absolved.  I've heard it said that a sin truly repented of, confessed, and forgiven is easily forgotten.
