choose to

      Whenever you choose to forgive somebody (no matter how you feel or what she deserves), you always get a whole lot more than you give.

“The importance [of forgiving] is not so much that it absolves the one forgiven as that it cleanses the one who forgives.” Lance Morrow

“Forgive (literally, give grace to) anyone who offends you. . . .” Colossians 3:13
