I Try.

Holding a grudge takes too much energy. Lack of forgiveness also gives power to the unforgiven. That person has power over me and my emotions until I forgive them and that provides incentive for me. Forgiveness doesn't let someone off the hook, so to speak. It doesn't negate the wrong done but serves to heal the forgiver, making forgiveness more beneficial for the one giving than the one receiving. This has been a learning experience.
