I came across these helpful words on forgiveness in an article on the Park Forum by Steven Dilla.
You can find the whole article entitled Don't conjure forgiveness, extend it here: http://www.theparkforum.org/843-acres/dont-conjure-forgiveness-extend-it/

Forgiveness, for Jesus, is less about conjuring an emotion and more about praying to God for the ability to extend his forgiveness to those around us. “Once we start inhaling God’s fresh air, there is a good chance that we will start to breathe it out, too,” says N. T. Wright. “As we learn what it is like to be forgiven, we begin to discover that it is possible, and indeed joyful, to forgive others.”
