Or does it not bother you at all?

I can identify that. Sometimes it is really important to us to feel forgiven.
I think I know what you mean, Sid. It does take work and I'm glad you have matured.
I hear you, dashing. I think that the attitude of the forgiver (on higher ground) helps to make asking for forgiveness burdensome or not. You're right. It can be difficult.
Someone commented earlier about forgiving that being willing is more important than being able. You seem to be doing pretty well, follow.
Thanks for you input, Tonipet. So why worry about someone forgive us when we can't make them do it? But suppose we really want to restore our relationship with that person? Wouldn't you be wishing that they forgive you? Just asking.
I would always want to be forgiven, that is why it takes a lot of me to hope and pray because I tend to put my might in hopes and prayers that I'd be forgiven. I'd never stop praying for that person as I believe GOD hears prayers and HE heals hurts.
Hope it goes will with you and that person, and that your forgiveness encourages a change in their behavior.
". . . doesn't need to know HOW . . . just need to be WILLING." I like that. Very mature. Thanks for your input.
