Why is it hard to forgive?

The Daily Post posted this simple but complicated question “Why is it hard to forgive? The premise of forgiving someone who has wronged us is rather simple. To actually forgive someone can be a difficult thing.

I believe that forgiveness goes against basic human nature. It is ingrained in our being to want revenge when other hurts us.  Truly forgiving someone involves giving this perceived right of avenging a wrong.

In forgiving others we must also confront our own weakness and shortcomings. Forgiveness is a reminder that others must at times forgive us.
