I don't have the details of the study, but the article makes a good point that agrees with experiences that being able to forgive is important to happiness and mental health.

It is a difficult article to read. I got burned recently. I don't think I can ever forgive that person for what he had done to me. Time will heal but I can never forgive or for forget.

The one thing it took me a long time to get is that forgiving doesn't mean letting the person back in your life again. It does mean processing and letting go of the anger and hurt and moving on, having no more held against the person. It doesn't mean being with them nor trusting them necessarily.
