But, I didn't mean to imply that forgiveness and emotions weren't connected, just that there is a difference. However, I will disagree that a "change of emotions, is real". Emotions don't exist, they are not real, not in the way existence is usually viewed. They involve moving various hormones and biochemicals in different ways and our brain thinks differently with different pathways - but you don't create an emotion, it is already stored in your brain and an act, or an event, stimulates that change. It still isn't something real in my opinion.

I'm also not sure a person can "will" emotions to change. I'll have to think about that.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain
