There are several aspects to the word forgiveness and it varies from individual to individual. How acute or critical the problem is another facet. The word ‘forgiveness’ is simply a less complex way of saying:

“Okay, you messed up and I’m giving you another chance.”  (This will probably occur again and again.)

 “Let’s let this go. No hard feelings, no remorse.  Fresh start. (When indeed, there's hard feelings and remorse.)

“The pain you have brought me is unbearable but in time my heart will heal.” (Making the best out of the most crucial situations.)

“It was a dim-witted mistake, a huge misunderstanding.” (And sometimes it is).

And sometimes forgiveness is the only remedy and medicine to better yourself. It means being able to look past the wounding moments, accepting them, and learning from them. Not for the sake of others, but for your very own personal growth. When you are able to look a person in the face, be in the same ambiance or room, and not feel one glitch of penitence towards them, you’ve already won. A tiny, silent triumph. It has zip, zero, nada to do with them. But being used and misused is intolerable and unacceptable. 

Over the years, I let a lot of things pass me by and I eventually got tired of it. Know when to draw a line and set strict boundaries with people. It's your choice who stays and goes in your life. Don't keep negative people around. Peace.
