That is not how forgiveness works. Forgiveness is about the person doing the forgiving, not the one being forgiven. Come on, you know that.
I know that's true: but I also don't think that forgiveness is always the correct thing to do. And it this case (my brother's whole attitude to just about everything stinks... AND he's so self-righteous about it all), I have no wish to forgive him. I don't think it would make me a better or kinder person... or relieve me of a weight that bothers me. I'm quite content to remain (in (t)his case) unforgiving.
