Forgiveness—person-to-person—is a one-way street. Best to expect nothing in return from the wrongdoer, for that is what you often get. But if the intent is truly sincere, and if thought of from the perspective that both parties are divine, then it’s one of the most holy acts of contrition/faith you can engage in.
And I believe as someone’s evolution accelerates, the act becomes more and more natural.
