1) It puts the past behind you.
Think of it like finishing the last chapter of a book and throwing it away for good. It gives you the proper closure that you deserve. 

2) It allows you to move on.

3) It diminishes resentment. 
When you forgive someone, all the feelings of anger simply disappear, allowing you to feel happy again.

4) You will feel better. 
Oddly enough, when you forgive him, you will feel as if a load of weight has been lifted off of your chest - it's an instant relief! 

5) The forgiveness is for you, not him. 
Forgiving him in your mind, body and soul will actually set YOU free from the angry, hurt and frustration that you felt while you were with him.
