Erin,
I'm realizing that I really don't understand what biblical forgiveness entails. I distanced myself from certain people who I assume to be narcissistic. -people who generally refused to assume responsibility for their actions or sought to project their shame onto others. ..people who preferred to shove things under the rug rather than work through something together.

How about this definition....
Forgiveness- It doesn't matter if I get an apology or if they take responsibility for their actions. By the grace of God, I'm going to love them just as if they never did anything wrong. I'm committed to forgive unconditionally.

Love your definition! Found this quote by Tony Evans that I think totally goes along with what you are saying, "2) Tony Evans says, “Biblical forgiveness is the decision to no longer credit an offense against an offender with a view of enacting vengeance. It also involves releasing that person from a debt owed as well as the blame that they deserve due to an infraction or sin committed against you."

The best biblical defense for this definition of forgiveness is found in 1 Corinthians 13 where we read about love. In verse 5 it says that love “keeps no record of wrongs.” This is similar to how God forgives us. He doesn’t forget the sin but He no longer holds the offense against our account. We are not held in debt to Him to pay off something that we are unable to pay.
