Can you forgive? I just don't think I can.

I've read lots of literature which says if you forgive you unburden yourself, you cease carrying the pain around with you. But to me carrying the pain around is like a warning for me to remember that these people are dangerous, to not be sucked in by their false smiles and that they are not to be trusted. From my experience people do not change. They may alter thier behaviour to get along with you better but the underlying foundations of a person and their nature does not change.

I have thought about forgiveness for such a long time. You only get one mother, one father but if that parent has failed you repeatedly and made you suffer terrible pain either physically or emotionally and NOT shown remorse, has not been sorry then surely they do not deserve your forgiveness.
