Forgiving someone doesn't mean completely letting them off the hook and letting them get away with everything.

Plus I've found that forgiveness is something that takes place in its own time. If you've been wronged in some way, you have every right to feel hurt, bitter, and angry. I've found rather than denying those feelings, it works best to plumb the depths of them, wallow in them until you've reach the deepest part of it all. Then you can start moving towards a better place regarding those feelings. Even still there will be times in which it'll still hurt, kind of like how people who've lost a limb sometimes experience Phantom Limb Pain from time to time.
