It's never easy for me to forgive. I guess it depends on the enormity of the damage done to me.
it is much easier to for give strangers than friends/family as the friends and family f**king know better.
I forgive when I am ready to forgive; when I am ready to LET GO. Forgiveness to a person close to me may or may not come easier than someone I don't know very well. It all depends on the degree of pain associated with that person.
