And until you forgive it will always hurt just as much. Forgiveness is not something you do for the other person. It's something you do for YOU--to allow yourself to move past the pain and on with your life. Forgiving doesn't mean forgetting, but learning from the experience and taking steps to make sure it never repeats itself in your life--or if it does you see it faster and rectify it before it becomes as much of a wound as the first one was.
Think of it this way, if someone wrongs you and you hold onto that pain and resentment, you are allowing them to live rent-free in your life. You are giving them a lot of power over you. Forgiving allows you to evict them and take your own power back. Some things are harder to forgive than others, but isn't your future worth the work?

Forgiveness is not for the other person as much as it is for you. Carrying that much anger around is only hurtful to you and is a full time job. You have to look at it as a release for yourself a healing for you and a good time to find your own forgiveness. Then you can move on and it will be up to you when you are able to do this. Take some time write a letter to the person say things you might have a hard time saying in person then decide what you are going to say to the person then do it. Find your voice and say it. After let that person know how you feel and let it go. You will feel better and this is the goal of forgiveness.
