I believe that forgiveness does not require forgetting the wrongs against you (or others); it should not absolve them from their guilt, nor from the appropriate consequences, but it does require you to move beyond certain emotions like humiliation, grief, resentment, rage, and so forth. Your forgiveness is not for their sake, it is for yours - it becomes a commitment to your own well-being. You cannot have a good life if your mind and heart are dominated by negative emotions.
