From my own experience....

I have found that of course you can't force others to forgive.You can only set an example with your own actions.I think pride is so destructive,especially because many people are not even aware it exists..Once I became aware of my own pride,it made it so much easier to understand why I ,as well as others,act,say,think and feel the way we do.It became obvious that pride is what makes people unwilling to forgive and unwilling to admit they are wrong about anything,whether the issue be personal,political,religious,patriotic,philosophical etc..My only advice to you would be to try to make unforgiving people aware of their own pride.They may not want to hear it,but I think we all need to be aware of it.I just try to keep my own pride in check,make other people aware of it and hopefully set a good example.
