" Forgive those who have injured you -
not because they deserve your forgiveness,
but because you can never be happy
until you release your anger and grant

  Indeed this is true. If you harbor resentment and bitterness, you only rob yourself of happiness. Get rid of the anger...

Dump the "friend" or the person who injures you, and go on your merry way! (smile)

    I think "not caring" is a better way of saying it. And you can only do this if you are over it.

    That is so true. My father lived with anger and unforgiveness for his evil father. Even after the death of his father it was still bothering him. I tried to tell him that forgiving his father didn't mean saying that what his father did was OK. It just meant that it would be put behind him. I am sure that many of my father's physical ailments were partially due to that continuing anger.
