You Are Forgiveness Itself
You are a light-hearted type who knows how to restrain themselves and forgive anyone for most things. You see in human beings creatures who, by nature, have a good heart and pure intentions and this makes you forgive easily and get hurt a lot less. It is true, the world is full of many good people who do things inadvertently and in good faith they deserve forgiveness, but it is important to distinguish between such people and people who do acts maliciously. Don't go forgiving people who are just going to hurt you again. Forgive, but don't forget.
You Forgive (With Caveats)
You're the type of person who forgives people and tries to see the good in every person, but this will not be done without an examination of the person and the circumstances - you will not forgive a person who will not provide you with a proper explanation for their actions. If the person who hurt you managed to convince you that this was done unintentionally and inadvertently, then you will forgive them and open a new page quickly. But if not, you won't hesitate to demand an apology before you can be whole with the situation.
You Tend to Hold On
You are not one to easily forgive, not to mention forget. Every nasty word, every inconsiderate act and injury directed at you is engraved in your memory. You tend to be very suspicious of people who have hurt you and are mostly unable to forgive easily. However, you do not usually do not use it to take revenge on the other person, but simply tend to put some distance between you and such people. This may lead to trust issues concerning new people. Try to let new people into your life on a 'innocent until proven guilty' condition, and not the other way around.
You Hold a Grudge
Any and every person who has hurt you should know that they have no one to apologize to because for you they no longer exist - no matter how much they will beg you and beg you to forgive. It is important to know that sometimes a person should not be judged when they are angry and people tend to say things during such a mood that are inappropriate, but they are not always said with full intent. It's okay to be suspicious and choose your friends selectively but it is also important to know who the person standing in front of you is and whether he is good enough to accept your forgiveness. You may lose some great people if you don't have room for forgiveness in your heart.
