You must forgive... you must forgive to help yourself move on. You can't go on hating someone. Also, you must forgive to be recieved into the Kingdom of Heaven.

But, as several others said, don't allow this person to hurt you again. You can forgive someone and leave them or let them go. That means that you do so with no malice in your heart, and you are also protecting yourself at the same time.

Our Heavenly Father gives us rules because He knows what is best for us. It is GOOD for us to forgive. However, we cannot allow the person to harm us. He wouldn't want that either. Just forgive this person and then let them leave your life..

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee

karen- There comes a time when forgiveness simply becomes letting go. Yes, you can forgive someone, yet that does not mean that you have to simply forget what has happened. Another biblical saying is about God promising to toss a man's sins "as far as the East is from the West". Thankfully, we are not God, and we are allowed the very human failing of NOT forgetting and of protecting ourselves first and foremost.
Maybe a bit rambling, but I hope you can sort it out.

We see the light of those
Who find the world has passed them by
Too late to save a dream from growing cold...

Exactly :  when forgiving turns into hurt then it is time to toss in the towel

Leave with peace always on your end and you will be the better person for it
