Will my forgiving help me to overcome the insecurity that bad things won’t happen again?

The intent of forgiving is not to reduce in one’s mind the probability that bad things will not happen in the future.  Instead, forgiveness offers this safeguard: No matter what happens that is unfair to me, forgiveness will help me to reduce resentment, not be overcome by anger, and to move forward with the confidence that I can overcome emotional distress if others treat me unfairly.
