"I want to forgive you and I want to forget you."

I've been having a lot of trouble figuring out what forgiveness means and, most importantly how to forgive. From the friendly advice I've received on the World Wide Web it seems as though forgiveness is a choice...it can cause stress...and it gives the other person the power. I guess for me I feel like if I forgive then that provides an open door for that person to come back into my life. But, that's not true. I can forgive what they did or said, but that doesn't mean I have to have them in my life again. Obviously, if I could find it in myself to forgive more then I would have more people in my life. Hopefully, I figure out this whole forgiveness thing soon.
