Does one need humility in order to forgive well?

As we forgive, we begin to see the inherent worth in both the one who acted unjustly and in ourselves.  Yes, I do think it requires humility to not feel superior toward the other person who acted badly.  Humility shows us that we are not better or worse than others. To see both of you as human, both in need of respect and love, requires the moral virtue of humility.  These two viruses, humility and forgiveness,  constitute an important team.
