This is a fantastic post from Breitbart and Howard Stern's interview with Kevin Hart is amazing.
Forgiveness is liberating. You are liberated from anger and resentment. You can live freely.
I am referring to forgiving people for bad behaviour toward you, and nothing that has to do with murder or physical harm.
I'm talking about releasing the anger, living in the present and not in the past, "in the moment" as the lefty yoga types say, and for the future as well.
You can't change the past. You may never "get over it", but with forgiveness and the right attitude, you can try to get through it in the best way possible.
Listen to the audio clip, it's fantastic.
