Sorry for being so blunt, but it seems to me that forgiving is an act of slavery to the ones who behave badly.  It gives the unintended message that I am too soft in my response to the one who hurt me.  What do you think?

I think you are equating forgiving and automatically reconciling without asking anything of the one who hurt you.  As you forgive, you can and should ask for fairness.
