I need help with forgiveness

It's hard to forgive some people. But I know it's better to do so, but the old memories keep popping up. Serious answers only.

Do YOU want to heal of the wounds people have caused you? Then quit carrying them around. Forgiveness helps heal. Give it over to the Lord, ask Him to take from you the burden you carry. Oh, and forgiving doesn't mean you FORGET the transgression, it just means you aren't going to hold them accountable, you're gonna let it go. Put it in God's hands. Because a huge impact of forgiveness is to be found upon the person doing the forgiving. Wild how that works, eh?

Philip is quite correct.
Forgiveness is not a gift to those that transgress against us, it is a gift TO OURSELVES so those people and what they did, no longer have any hold over us.
Also, we forgive because He forgave Us first.
It is hard to forgive BUT remember that BEFORE YOU do anything that will require someone to forgive YOU.
