How can I encourage others to forgive without over-stepping my bounds?

I like your word “encourage” because it suggests that you will not pressure others to forgive.  The gist is to help others to be drawn to the beauty of forgiveness.  In other words, the person will have to see that to forgive is not to show weakness or to cave in to others’ unreasonable demands.  To forgive is to see the humanity in the other and in the self, without coercion to think this way.  If the other begins to see forgiveness in its true light, then over time the person may be drawn to forgiving, as a free-will choice.
