I believe forgiveness is for the person doing the forgiving. Most people don't give a rat's *ss if you forgive them or not. But without being able to forgive a person, you stay suck, revenge is all that can be thought of, it consumes a person & their thinking. I can forgive those that are extremely close to me. But I am a grudge holder to others. Not so much that it occupies my every tho't, but I have a hard time letting it go. Especially if I've been accused falsely. Do me wrong, & I will treat you nicely, but I will always hold you at an arm's length, never willingly giving you that opportunity again. So, do I really forgive???
