Is forgiving someone who doesn't regret beneficial for you?
Forgiving is good for your health.
The act of forgiveness can
the risk of heart attack, improve sleep, and reduce pain, blood pressure, anxiety, and depression.
People who hang onto grudges are
to experience depression and PTSD.
The opposite of forgiving (remembering, rumination, anger, regret) is less beneficial - it is not constructive and unhealthy.
By forgiving, people choose to let go and forget past transgression. This can be harmful to the person forgiving as it may lead to them repeating mistakes rather than learning a lesson from them.
