I used to have a quote that read,"Forgiveness is for the weak, for those who lack the strength of hate". I still feel that way, but only about certain people. My wife, my kids, I have learned that it isn't the way it should be. I honestly don't know how I would react in your situation. I am still pretty "sick". I haven't seen a good shrink yet. I would probably snap and hurt someone. But in your case, I think I "might" forgive. I stress might because how I feel now, I wouldn't, but I know I overreact way too often. I would recommend give it time, then in time forgive, but no matter what, never, ever forget.

Forgiveness to me is an action I can take, if I so desire, that will be cathartic for me and I really would not give a rats ass a obout the feelings of my perps. On the other hand, when I have made an ass of myself I will freely admit it and move on and AI generally get forgiven. I use that same philosophy here with others and with others in my day to day interaction with others.
I think I am confused now. ;\)
